0 563

Wahoo Sotto never liked Kobe Bryant on the court, but he looked up to the late NBA legend outside of the hardwood.

The Parañaque councilor penned a long message to commemorate Bryant, who figured in a helicopter crash with his daughter Gianna and seven others on Sunday.

“I was never a fan of Kobe as a player, I never liked how he played, his swagger plus I was a fan of the #Spurs (up to now kahit struggling) but I am a fan of Kobe as father,” Sotto said, also a father to girls.

“I saw how much he cared for his daughters. How proud he is of his family, How much time he spent watching their games, bringing Gigi to NBA, WNBA, College games and even calling her in his namesake #Mambacita, basically bringing her up and inspiring young girls to play basketball all over the world,” he added.

I am really saddened by the turn of events and saddened to think what his family is going through. The consolation in all these is I know they’re both up in heaven playing the game they both love ? #CTTO of the Pictures Lesson: Appreciate everyone you meet, you will never know when your time is. ?
