Kobe Bryant

I don't even know how to begin or what to say....So sad and tragic.

God Bless Kobe, all his family, and all involved.

Very sad news.

I wasn't a huge Kobe fan, but he's an all-time great player. Also a very intelligent dude, and fierce competitor. Sadly from what is being reported now one of his daughter was with him along with 3 other.

RIP to all who passed in this event.

Great player but he was no MJ, either one.

Rest in peace, he was my childhood hero and just awe inspiring to watch him do his magic on the court. Huge tragedy for sure, I feel for his family.

Just a reminder that we are all on just a short term lease on this planet.

I mean it's sad and I'm not trying to sound like a dick, but.....

It's no more sad than any other life that is lost due to a tragic event. Yet when it comes to someone "famous" it's all of the sudden this big deal.

Somewhere today there's a struggling single mom, who is on the way to one of her multiple jobs she works to provide and just make it until tomorrow, and she will be killed by a drunk driver or a murderer, or accidentally step in front of a bus because she is so exhausted from "life"

What's the "sadder" story.

In 41 years, by MOST peoples standards, Kobe Bryant lived a pretty good f'n life.

Most of us need a familiar face with a story in order for it to be truly sad. I think that's where the difference is.

My thoughts and prayers are with all the families that were affected in this tragic event.
