Pau Gasol Hanging Out With Kobe's Kids Will Melt Your Heart

Damn it.

I mean, just look at that. Every time I see something like this about Kobe's wife or kids, it just brings back all those feelings everybody had on that day — that was somehow this year — when we all learned he had passed away. It still doesn't seem real.

But Pau Gasol seems like such an awesome guy to want to hang around Kobe's family and give them something to smile about. I can only imagine what it would be like to lose a friend with a young family like that. But good for him for giving those kids someone to be happy to be around and look up to when they need it the most.

It's simultaneously heartbreaking and heartwarming stuff. RIP Mamba.
