Kobe Bryant

Recommended Posts

BBC just sent through an alert on my phone (with a friendly reminder to block their notifications since it nearly made me jump out of my skin!) and it looks like they already have it as their lead story.

It has just been confirmed by CNN.I think we can safely say this is the biggest and most shocking death of the year so far ! 

We’re only at the end of january, it’s a big death but too soon to say that, In France he’s not that famous tbh

I assure you I never followed NBA or basketball in general, but perfectly know who Kobe Bryant is and what he means to the world of basketball. Probably second only to Michael Jordan.

Would "more chopper trouble" be a wildly inappropriate subheading for this thread?

All British  news networks have rolling news on the death.The BBC reporter just said there will be 'immeasurable shock' in the USA. This seems to be massive news . Reminds me of the night Michael Jackson died TBH , except this is in even more tragic and shocking circumstances.

Nobody deserves to die in a way like that. I didn't expect this.

RIP Kobe.

I'm curious, does anyone have him on any kind of deathlist? I'm not a sports fan but since he's one of fiveish basketball players who I would know by name, I can understand how famous he is even though there would be zero expectation of his death.

I was shocked to see this on Fox News. I saw LeBron James passing Kobe for third on the all time NBA scoring list last night. RIP Kobe.

There are rumors on Twitter that he was the pilot.

No.It;s true. With every passing minute as the details of the crash come out it's harder and harder to believe, or make sense of. I compared it before to the death of Michael Jackson but maybe Princess Diana's death is a closer comparison, at least in America.

Would be cautious on the daughters part of it. There’s a lot of conflicting reports on whether the daughters were actually on or not...

Holy fucking shit.

 

Just got the notification on my phone. Needless to say this is all I'll be seeing on social media for the next week.
