Los Angeles Clippers’ Kawhi Leonard revealed that he is now thinking about discontinuing helicopter rides to and from Southern California after the tragic death of NBA legend Kobe Bryant on Sunday.

“The things that you hear, you don’t know what’s real yet,” Leonard said.

“I can’t really speak on it. I don’t know. I don’t know yet. It’s a lot of thoughts in my head,” he added.

The basketball star said that he personally knew the pilot of Bryant’s helicopter.

“Yeah, same pilot, everything,” Leonard told reporters after practice on Wednesday.

“The whole situation, this whole program, the setup, how Bryant was traveling back and forth was the same way I was getting here from San Diego,” he added.

Bryant regularly uses helicopters to avoid the gridlock and Los Angeles traffic.

“That is a guy who you ask to fly you from city to city. It’s just surreal still. He will drop me off and say he is about to go pick up Kobe, and Kobe said hello. Or he’ll just be like, ‘I just dropped Kobe off and he said hello.’ Vice versa. So, it’s a crazy interaction. He’s a good dude and I’m sorry for everybody,” Leonard said describing the pilot of the ill-fated helicopter.

“You know, you kind of feel like life isn’t real once you start seeing these little monuments or the pictures that people are putting up with his face and the year he was born and the year he died,” he said.
