At 8:19am, Kobe reached out to Shareef, writing, “You good fam?”
Shareef responded and asked Kobe, “How you been?”
Unfortunately, he never got a reply to his question. At about 9:40am on the same day, Kobe’s chopper crashed, killing him and his daughter, Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant.
Shareef, whose father Shaquille was teammates with Kobe, has dedicated his Twitter account to remembering the late legend and his daughter Gigi.
