LeBron James Asked About Speculation That He Skipped Kobe Bryant's Memorial

LeBron James is praising Vanessa Bryant for the heartbreaking tribute speech she gave for Kobe and Gianna Bryant at their celebration of life earlier this week.

“One thing I can come out of it saying is how strong and how bold and how powerful Vanessa is,” LeBron told reporters (via Sports Illustrated). “To stand up there the way she did, to give that speech the way she gave that speech. I commend her. My heart is with their family still. With his three daughters that are still here. With his wife. With his mom and dad and his sisters. It was just a very difficult day. Obviously a celebration but it was a difficult day for all of us.”

When he was asked directly if he was in attendance at the Staples Center for the big event, he responded, “Um, like I said man, it’s just, I respect your question for sure, but it’s very emotional. A very emotional day. A very tough day for myself, for my family, for everyone involved.”
