“Part of me wanted to stay to myself as I reflect what my brother and his family mean to me and my family,” the Diesel said. “But, in thinking what would Kobe want, what would he do?”

“Kobe would want us to push through and celebrate life. So, let’s do just that.”

“Together we will celebrate all those who lost their lives in Sunday’s tragedy. RIP my brother, my friend and my homie, The Black Mamba. Until we meet again,” Shaq added.

Kobe’s charity — the “Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation” — was established in 2007 and is dedicated to helping youth and families in need across the world.

After his emotional appearance on “Inside the NBA” … Shaq went out and led a “KOBE!” chant for the dozens of Kobe mourners.
