Kobe Bryant Dies in Helicopter Crash

Recommended Posts

Something about this seems fishy... I read that there was a helicopter crash, but they haven't said who was in it. Just 5 people and all died.

Fox Sports on the air just confirmed it.

 

Prayers to his family and friends. Wow

I would wait on a statement from the Lakers and/or NBA before we say RIP to Kobe

Is this real?

Yes, it’s real. Yes, my gut has thoroughly been punched.

Kobe was my personal favorite athlete to watch growing up... there was always something about him and his style of play that was so entertaining and impressionable on me. Rest easy king.

Please don't let that be true. This is really affecting me for some reason.

I was hoping this was just a nasty hoax.

 

Nope.

 

Absolutely gutted, especially given he was from my area, sort of.

I said a few years ago that I knew there wasn’t ever going to be another athlete that I enjoyed hating as much as Kobe. 

 

This absolutely sucks.

This is hard to swallow. He was the player of the 2000's, but has also accomplished so much outside of basketball. People would say the phrase, "Kobe!" before making a shot, whether it was in basketball, another sport, or even in video games. Kobe was important to both his admirers and haters. He was that influential. I use to root against him during portions of his career, but after he retired, I learned to respect him more.

 

41 is also too young.

Jesus, I knew his wife wasn’t on board but to hear the other 4 victims were all of his kids. That’s absolutely tragic. I was really hoping it was a nasty joke by someone since Lebron just passed him in scoring. I feel like I got kicked in the chest
