    What shocking news to start the day. He was just in Philly watching LeBron pass him on the all-time scoring list.

    As much of an antagonist as he was against the Warriors, he is forever one of the all time greats. Tragic loss for the NBA and his wife and three daughters (he has four, but his 2nd eldest passed with him in the helicopter).

    RIP Kobe.

    Lebron James passes Kobe's scoring record. The next day, Kobe dies. Coincidence?

    His daughter’s teammate and her parents were also in the helicopter as they were going to their travel basketball game. Just devastating to know that they were there just to support their young daughters for their basketball game.

    I was re-watching his appearance on Kimmel about how much his daughter Gigi loved the game. It’s heartbreaking.

    Very depressing day. Obviously, I hated the Lakers growing up watching them destroy the Warriors decade after decade. And I was no fan of Kobe during most of his career. But there is no doubting his generational talent, incredible clutch performance pretty much anytime his team needed him. I have grown to respect the hell out of the man, we lost a good one today!

    Well, sh*t... there ain't much to say that hasn't been said already. I was a fan of Kobe the player, because he played the game the right way (as in giving all he had to the game, something you don't see so often), but he was still the enemy, so no fan of that part. Still, a lot of respect for what he did on the court. One of the best to ever play this beautiful sport. Worst of all is the senseless death of him, his daughter and 7 more people. RIP.

    yup, Kobe was basically Thanos to us - that over powered Super Villain that we respected but hated and just couldn't stop. Hell of a player

    still in shock about it all

    Respect as a player and he seems to have done right by his wife and family.
    Will always have that tarnish though of the rat faced rapist.
