The Golden Wave Media Staff member Mario Watson spoke to Kabriyen Clark about the recent death of the basketball legend. 

MW: How do you feel about Kobe?

KC: Kobe was the greatest of all time.

Nobody can do it better.

MW: How does the recent news about his death affect you?

KC: It hurt me a little because you know growing up watching him, I was watching Jordan and I watched Kobe. He [Kobe] illustrated Jordan’s moves but he made him better. He showed me that I can do a lot.

MW: How will you remember him and his legacy?

KC: In the coming AAU season [Amateur Athletic Union Basketball League]. I’m gonna choose [jersey number] 24 or 8. I’m  going to start wearing Kobe’s [shoes] the whole season.
