Rest in peace Kobe , you’ll forever be missed . A true legend to the game

While I generally don’t mind colorful commentary, this isn’t the place for it. If you want to drop condolences, go for it. If you have something disrespectful to say, don’t say it here. Have no issue

Can’t stop crying bro. I can’t believe this. This guy was my idol. I was born and raised in la. Diehard laker fan ever since I was able to comprehend ball. My dad used to make me go to sleep at 9 when

I started watching NBA in 03-04 season and became a fan of the Lakers & Kobe. I met my best friends because we shared the same appreciation for Kobe. This news hits home for all of us. 

What's incredibly sad for me, and I'm sure for many of you as well, is that he wasn't just a role model for basketball. His work ethic was something I learned from and that shaped who I am as a person in my every day job. I wouldn't have had the same drive or success in my career if it wasn't for his approach to his.

The legacy he left behind will never die. Because of him many around the world including myself, will strive to be the best versions of ourselves. Not only in achieving personal goals, but being better humans, caring for one another & impacting people’s lives.

He inspired many on/off the court with his unbreakable will & determination which we can all apply to our everyday lives. It is up to us to carry on that legacy.

Condolences to the Bryant family & other families involved. Kobe & Gigi rest in paradise. 

#8 & #24-ever

I didn't sleep well the last night.

Trust me but as an Orlando Magic fan living in Italy grown up when he was ballin' out the league, it has been way harder than I thought.

Kobe has lived in my town (Pistoia) when his dad used to play for our team, it's still unbelievable.

I tried to honor him watching his last game against Utah even though it was like 4 AM in Italy and I had an exam on 9 AM, I believe that this was the sign of how much I loved him.

I'll miss him very much.

RIP Kobe and Gigi

I think it was a testament to Kobe’s relentlessness and work ethic that many people (myself included) often rooted against the Lakers in the finals. Kobe was tenacious.


I heard today that Kobe on a recent pod said his initial goal was 8 championships and that he later updated it to 6 (to equal MJ’s total). He was for a long time salty he only got 5. But eventually he realized he could not have worked any harder, so he was satisfied with his total.
