Shakib wrote on his Facebook page, "It doesn't matter how much talent one possesses. Greatness is achieved through years of hard work, commitment and focus. Legends like Kobe Bryant never die. They continue to live through all the lives they have touched with their skills, showmanship, philanthropies, etc. My condolences to his family for their incredible losses."
