Each Year's Most Significant Death.

The fact that George Floyd wasn't a celebrity is immaterial; his death has certainly been of more significance than Bryant's, and I expect that will still be the case in 5-10-whatever years time. Greater fame doesn't equal greater significance.


I don’t even disagree with you, I’m just not considering it a celebrity death. 
 

Also, stop fucking saying “I haven’t heard of him so he isn’t known” ESPECIALLY when I’ve already said that Connery is MOST LIKELY more well known worldwide. I swear you’re making it seem like Brits just don’t read.

George Floyd didn't really accomplish anything before he died.

 

But I would probably compare him to Anne Frank in terms of his legacy.  

Already, there are scholars who say George Floyd is this century's Anne Frank.  

 

Also, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor did something rare: their deaths brought the country together.  Everybody from liberals to hardcore Trump supporters came together in mourning and in protest.  I've had BLM friends protesting side by side with Trump supporters marching.     

 

Until the riots tore our country apart again.

Diego now surely 

tie between Maradona and Connery for me on a international level but I would say Naya Rivera, Chadwick Boseman or Kobe Bryant would be great contenders in the "shocking" category

On an international stage I imagine Maradona is biggest, but I suspect the American audience doesn't think he's the biggest given that football (or soccer as well call it here) isn't really that big in the US.

Maradona is easily the biggest death this year.

 

That being said, I still think Kobe is the most significant of 2020.

As basket-ball is extremely popular in Asia, there's no doubt that Kobe's death is the most significant worldwide.

How do you figure?  Nearest I can tell he served no significant purpose to anything and, not that I'm a fan, but DMX moved the needle far more on this side of the pond.

 

Because this forum is the other side of the pond from you.

 

Another bloody rapper that doesn't even have a proper name and uses some old kids bike instead.

Septics pft. Think everything revolves around them not the sun.

 

Oh and this is the country that believes it sets the moral standard for the world, but still has a system that was just asking for this.... https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/toddler-3-fatally-shoots-baby-brother-after-picking-unsecured-gun-n1263738.

Nowhere is perfect, but most don't look down their noses at everyone else as if they had just crawled from under a rock.

/rant over.

Phil is probably the most 'known' person to have died this year but at 99 I doubt if you could say significant, I would suggest that we are looking for someone that was not expected to die anyway and be well known.

It would really need to be someone not suggested by the members of this forum as yet.

I would say the Duke is the most significant SO FAR but hey, we're only in April… To say that he is the most significant of the decade seems inappropriate considering that the queen would be 104 in 2030, she'll probably die before so that would be the death of the decade. Besides, I can see prominent figures such as Tina Turner, Elton John, Clint Eastwood, Bill Clinton who would be great contenders for the most significant death of the decade or of the year (if one of them does die in 2021).
