Pau Gasol Couldn't Talk to Anyone for Days After Learning of Kobe Bryant's Death

Former Los Angeles Lakers big man Pau Gasol, who won three Western Conference titles and two NBA championships with the team during his six-year tenure in purple and gold, told the Los Angeles Times that he couldn't speak to anyone for days following the death of ex-Lakers legend Kobe Bryant in a helicopter crash.

Gasol said he and his wife, Catherine McDonnell, were coming home from a basketball game north of Barcelona when McDonnell heard news from a friend that Bryant had died.

After getting home, Gasol recalled the moments that followed.

"I just started crying, it was hard to find words, I couldn't talk to anyone for days," Gasol said.
