"Basketball will never be the same" - Tammy Brawner
"The world has literally stopped in honor of you two" - Tear'a Laudermill.

Perhaps no one can appreciate the contributions by Kobe Bryant to girl's basketball than two women who play the sport. One, Tammy Brawner, is a former Harlem Globetrotter, the 10th female to play in the league. She's now a producer and actress and would love to win an Oscar-like Kobe.
 
The other, Tear'a Laudermill(coach Tee),  traveled the world playing basketball and is now a high school coach in Riverside. She once taught an all-girls camp at Kobe's sports facility, Mamba Academy. A photo is in ESPN'S commemorative issue on Kobe.
 
Both give Gianna Bryant major props and share their thoughts on Kobe's legacy as a player and dad.
