Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka honored Kobe Bryant with a heartfelt speech during Monday’s memorial at Staples Center.

Pelinka revealed that around 30 minutes before Bryant died in a helicopter crash on Jan. 26, he was in church when he received a text message from his friend. While he would normally ignore his texts during church, Pelinka said he had a feeling that he should look at his phone.

Bryant had texted Pelinka to ask if he knew a baseball agent based in southern California. The former Laker wanted to help secure an internship with the agent for the daughter of one of his friends. Around 10 a.m. PT, Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others died in a helicopter crash in the hills of Calabasas. They were headed to a youth basketball game at Bryant’s Mamba Sports Academy.
