The Nets also tweeted out photos of Irving, DeAndre Jordan, Bruce Brown and Jeff Green showing up to work at Fiserv Forum in their “Mambacita” hoodies.
Irving was devastated by the death of Bryant on January 20, 2020.
“It’s an open wound,” the Brooklyn Nets star said a few days later, via Yahoo. “I’m not the only one that’s hurting. I don’t wanna make this about me and our relationship because we all shared something really, really strong with him. There’s a bond whether watching him or studying him. We all shared something.”
Vanessa Bryant also took to Instagram to thank Kyrie for his generosity.
Kobe made his impact on an entire generation of players.
The NBA family is always there for each other.
