LeBron James still has Kobe Bryant on his mind almost six months after the death of the Los Angeles Lakers legend.
“There’s not a day that doesn’t go by that I don’t think about him,” James said Monday, per Mark Medina of USA Today.
Bryant was killed in a helicopter crash in January alongside his daughter, Gianna, and seven other people. LeBron and Kobe had gotten close over the years, with LeBron referring to their relationship as a “friendship/bond/brotherhood” in an Instagram post honoring the superstar.
Kobe called LeBron the night before his death, congratulating him for moving up on the all-time scoring list.
As James noted after the celebration of Bryant’s life in February, his death was going to stick with him.
“It’s never going to be a closure,” he said, per?
