Earlier this morning in LA. Dude just thanked LeBron James on Twitter the other day for passing him up on points.

@ShadowFox08:
This is sad news!

But why is it in the P&R thread, instead of the Sports thread or the General thread?

Because he was a mentor to people outside of sports and general chat is for nonsense post

This used to be the world board too. Shrugs

This board is for "World events, politics and whatever (especially whatever)".

This thread could also be viable in General, but that does not mean that it is not also viable here.

Basketball was always my favorite sport. When I started watching the world of basketball revolved around the then-unstoppable Kobe and Shaq led Lakers. Shortly after, when LeBron James began entering his prime the narrative began to revolve around the Kobe Vs. Lebron rivalry. Kobe Bryant was a figure I paid much attention to during the bulk of my childhood and adolescence, and one I always viewed as larger-than-life.

It's both terrifying and surreal that Kobe's life was cut so short. His 13 year old daughter and 2(?) others perished in the accident as well. May they all rest in peace.

I heard at 6:00 AM this morning that his 13-y/o daughter was killed with him.
That makes me sad.

A total of nine people were killed; everyone aboard the helicopter.

Two of his daughters teammates were on board as well, from what I understand.

Just a shocking tragic event for all those families involved.

I don’t even care about basketball or sports, but this was damn tragic. Seems like he was a good guy, and for his daughter to be onboard as well... I imagine this is his wife’s worst nightmare. Just a really sad situation.

I heard that on the radio about four hours ago.
He has three more daughters. And a wife, their mother Vanessa? Is that right?
It’s sad for them.

He did commit sexual assault in 2003. I feel conflicted, but I think he became better person from it, and he made world a better place and made a positive impact on countless people's lives.

But yeah.. It's strange. I'm not a huge basketball fan by any means. And its still hard to believe. Its on the news everywhere and people are talking about it, and my brother is a huge fan of kobe. He was larger than life, happy and starting the second part of his life, and this accident just happened. We thought someone as big as him would live a happy and long life, almost immortal. But it just goes to show you that anybody can be taken at an instant, and we will all die in the end too.
