Pau Gasol couldn’t make any comments on the death of Kobe Bryant since he was way too affected by the tragic loss of his longtime Los Angeles Lakers teammate and friend.

When Gasol was approached by Spanish radio show Carusel Deportivo for a comment, the response by the Spanish player’s environment said that “he’s very affected right now” and that there are “no plans to make any statements.”

His only reaction was the following tweet.

Gasol played alongside Bryant on the Lakers from 2008 to 2014. Together, they won the back-to-back NBA titles of 2009 and 2010.

Bryant was killed at 41 on Sunday morning when a private helicopter he was on board crashed in California.
