As Colorado State junior Emmanuel Omogbo works through the grieving process, Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant wants his fellow hoopster to know he's there for him.

Per Matt Norlander of CBS Sports, both of Omogbo's parents and his sister's twin daughters died in a house fire early Tuesday. His sister was able to jump from a second-story window to escape the fire.

There are no words to describe how it must feel to deal with a tragedy like that. But Bryant put together a video to offer his support and let Omogbo know he's in his thoughts.

It's a classy move by Bryant. There's no doubt the heartfelt message meant a lot to Omogbo.
