Priyanka Chopra, Ranveer Singh and other celebs mourn death of Basketball legend Kobe Bryant

Basketball legend Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash on Sunday.

The news has come as a shock to many Hollywood as well as Bollywood celebrities. Priyanka Chopra, Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and many other celebrities mourned the death of the 18-time NBA All-Star with their tweets.

PeeCee dedicated a heart-warming post for the basketball champion and wrote, "Kobe Bryant was my first real introduction to the NBA. I was 13 living in Queens NYC, the same age as his sweet little girl, Gianna. He ignited my love for the sport, competition, and striving for excellence. He inspired an entire generation. His legacy is so much bigger than basketball. This heartbreaking accident also took the life of his young daughter, Gianna. I’m shook and so saddened.”

Kobe Bryant was my first real introduction to the NBA. I was 13 living in Queens NYC, the same age as his sweet little girl, Gianna. He ignited my love for the sport, competition, and striving for excellence. He inspired an entire generation. His legacy is so much bigger than basketball. This heartbreaking accident also took the life of his young daughter, Gianna. I’m shook and so saddened. My heart goes out to Vanessa, Natalia, Bianka, and Capri Bryant. You are in my thoughts. Also sending my condolences to the loved ones of the other family and pilot in the accident. Being at tonight’s Grammys ceremony in his home at the Staples Center is going to be surreal. 💔 #RIP #KobeBryant #RIPMamba

Kobe Bryant became one of the greatest basketball players of his generation during a 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers and won five championships. He retired in 2016 as the third-leading scorer in NBA history, finishing two decades with the Lakers as a prolific scorer with a sublime all-around game and a relentless competitive ethic. 

Kobe Bryant’s death came as a shock just before the Grammys 2020. When the world of entertainment and music was gearing up for the biggest night in Hollywood, the news came and broke many hearts. Priyanka, who has attended the event with American singer husband Nick Jonas, paid a tribute to the champion as she flaunts his jersey number ‘24’ on her nails.
