Kobe Bryant's Last Text Message Revealed By Lakers General Manager Rob Pelinka

The final text message that Kobe Bryant ever sent has been revealed by Lakers General Manager Rob Pelinka.

During his speech at the Celebration of Life event for Kobe and his daughter, Gianna on Monday (February 24), Rob opened up about texting with Kobe just moments before the helicopter crash.

The text was about finding a baseball agent to help the daughter of one of his friends.

“I grabbed my phone and text Kobe back that I had seen the baseball agent at a Lakers game just the other night and was happy to help him with whatever he wanted,” Rob shared. “It was now just past 9:30. Kobe texted back explaining his desire to help a friend of his secure a baseball agency internship for one of his young daughters. Kobe vouched for the girl’s character, intellect and work ethic. He clearly wanted to champion a bright future for her.”

He continued, “I text Kobe right back and said I would put a plan in motion to help get that done, [and] a handful of minutes later, Kobe and Gianna and seven other beautiful souls ascended into heaven. Kobe had been texting me from the helicopter.”

“Kobe’s last human act was heroic. He wanted to use his platform to bless and shape a young girl’s future. Hasn’t Kobe done that for all of us?”
