When news of Kobe Bryant's death was announced on Sunday, basketball fans all over the world reacted including Houston Texans players. Many took to social media to offer tributes and condolences to the Bryant family.
Deshaun Watson found out just minutes before taking the field for the 2020 NFL Pro Bowl in Orlando, Florida.
"I don't even really have words for it," Watson said via ESPN on Sunday. "It's heartbreaking and for us to find out in the locker room before we came out, a lot of guys were just very emotional. To be able to get to know Kobe a couple of months ago, he came down to Houston, and now with his loss and his family, prayers go out to his family and friends. It's terrible news."
Bryant, 41, along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna were among the nine victims killed when the NBA legend's helicopter crashed in Calabasas, California.
