    Kobe was a hell of a basketball player but don't forget he was a son brother husband father and one of daughters who never got real chance to live died. This was a tragedy all around and seven other souls lost their lives to and their families are still grieving. This tragedy is still being felt.

    Rest easy Kobe, Gianna and the other 7 lives that were lost that Sunday morning.... Almost 2 months later and I still can't believe a legend such as Kobe Bryant is no longer with us here on Earth. Thank you for all the incredible memories, Kobe Bean Bryant. I wasnt a Lakers fan, but I damn sure was a Kobe fan.

    I know we all are felt upset because Kobe Bryant is greatest of all time Inside or outside of the basketball court he is greater than life. but one think i add that all world is cry and feels so devastated by Kobe's unexpected extremely dangerous death. and that day accident could have been averted. this think touched the sole of every one on earth and beyond the earth. I never watched NBA before kobe Bryant death and I really don't know who Kobe Bryant was but after day 26 of January 2020 I know who is Kobe I watch all Kobe Bryant basketball matches and documentary on Kobe and ya Kobe's interview and I felt in love with Kobe Bryant he is a legend he is greatest of all time we all loves you Kobe ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

    I'm not a basketball fan but I was shocked and devastated,sad when my friends texted me the news that he and his daughter gianna and seven other people who were on board with him died I was like this gotta be a prank or something but it's wasn't a prank I turned on the television and it said that he and his daughter and seven other people were killed in a tragic accident I just didn't know what else to say after that

    of the countless things we can learn from losing Kobe Bean Bryant, is to make sure U tell your loved ones that U love them. We really don't want to find ourselves regretting not telling our loved ones just how much we value them in our lives.

    i didn't watch any of kobe's games, don't know basketball, the only reason i know of kobe et LA Lakers team is coz I'm a big fan of Jack Nicholson and he is a big fan of kobe and the Lakers, et I only knew of kobe when Jack interrupted (very sweetly I thought) one of kobe's interview with a reporter et Jack asked for Kobe"s autograph, et I was like Whaaat!! who the heck is this basketball guy?? to be truthful had it been just kobe who had died, i wouldnt be this much affected, but the fact that gigi, a daughter was with him, that is just one of life's extremely cruel blows, whether this happened to a celebrity or to a normal person, it would have had the same impact on me. then sadly after his death et gigi too, i started to realise he was a dedicated husband, father, et athlete, et woah! my water works hasn't stopped leaking ever since i learned from watching ellen, when she broke the news on air, i realised the seriousness of this tragic event when she didn't do her opening dance et twitch did this for her. the only other time i know ellen didn't do her opening dance was when she was down with her back pain et hosted her show from a hospital bed.
    my heart breaks (in tatters) esp for gigi's loving mum vanessa. et gigi's breathtakingly beautiful sisters.
    for me, i havent really started grieving for kobe (eventho he was a prime example of what a good human being shoud be) how can i ? when gigi's death is unthinkable. as tragic as kobe's death was, (et i truly believe the 2nd chapter of his life would have been much more magnificent than his magical basketball career), the loss of gigi and her magical talent (like her pa) is beyond comprehension, extremely unfair... from a human standpoint, however i think God knows that only gigi could have brought her father to the other side peacefully. kobe has had a life (unfairly short as it was) but to take gigi away when she was about to turn the whole world upside down (in a very good way), empowering women, carrying on her father's legacy, she was the future of the bryant family, only gigi bryant could make the bryant name her own. the future generations would have known only gigi bryant et her famous father just a footnote in gigi's history. only gigi can eclipse her famous father, et everyone would have been ok with this, in her own words "i got this mum et dad"
    we love u kobe, gigi, vanessa, nani, bibi, et koko. the whole world has got ur back.
    et to vanessa, u really do have the best team.
