Everyone around the sports realm has learned about the death of former Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant, but there were also games going on at the time the news broke out.
One of those games turns out to be Michigan State Spartans taking on the Minnesota Golden Gophers in the Twin Cities.
After MSU won 70-52 over the Gophers earlier, head coach Tom Izzo had to deliver the news to star guard Cassius Winston. You can see Winston mouth the words, ‘Kobe?!’ and ‘Bryant?!’ back to Izzo.
The shock coming off from Winston’s face was very much expected out of him. And the rest of the fans felt the same way.
Like what one person said in a reply above, it was a good move by coach Izzo to let them know ahead of time before reporters tell him about Bryant’s passing.
And I am also sure that everyone around the college and professional basketball world reacted the same way to the news.
