RIP. My deepest condolences to the family and friends of the Altobelli, Bryant, Chester, Mauser and Zobayan families. Photo above via @MLB on twitter.

Bryant and Altobelli were friends, an NBA legend and a junior college coaching icon bonded by paternal love, two men who embodied each other’s best traits in their respective professions. Altobelli’s youngest daughter, Alyssa, was teammates with Bryant’s daughter Gianna, the two 13-year-olds playing travel basketball together for Bryant’s Mamba Academy youth team. The two fathers connected, with Altobelli often giddily mentioning the times the “Black Mamba” would let him ride with him on his helicopter to games — he’d get to ride five or so times, with Alyssa taking countless more trips across Los Angeles to birthday parties and games. Saturday night, as his team was in the midst of an intrasquad scrimmage before Tuesday’s season opener, Altobelli stopped to tell his assistant coaches that he, his wife, Keri, and Alyssa would be riding to the second day of Bryant’s Mamba Cup tournament together on Sunday morning.

“The last three-plus years [we] have heard the rumors, accusations,” Friedman said. “And to see it at least in a little bit more detail, some of the things we had heard, was helpful to see. But obviously it just added to the frustration at this point. It’s a difficult thing to accurately articulate. And part of it is there’s nothing we can do about it.”
