Kobe Bryant's death was a shock to us all. The 41-year old, his daughter Gianna, and seven others passed away Sunday morning in a tragic California helicopter crash. This is one of those moments we'll all remember where we were for – but if you weren't in front of a mirror to catch your reaction to the news, Cassius Winston, who was busy playing a basketball game, has you covered.
Pure disbelief. Winston listened intently to Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo whisper into his ear, but he really didn't know how to process what he was told.
Once Izzo delivers the news, you can see Winston turn to him and mouth, "Kobe?!..... Bryant?" with a blank stare on his face that quickly turns into a dropped jaw. Yes, Cassius, that Kobe. For Winston to learn the news right before doing a live interview with Andy Katz must have made it that much harder.
Like Izzo, Winston probably didn't know Bryant all that well, if at all, and still you can see and hear the distraught tone in their reactions. It's not just the NBA, but all of sports that will need time to heal from Bryant's loss.
