    Such devastating news to wake up to, aftér hearing the news and reading a lot of stuff I'm still in denial that I typed "Kobe Bryant is alive" hoping I can find an article saying this all just a fake news or something. This just unreal! I thought to myself when he's still playing in the NBA that how can I cope when he retired, his games brought life into me giving me the motivation to live this tough life, but hearing this news put me in this black hole that seems impossible to get out to. You'll forever be missed Kobe "Bean" Bryant. Hope the days get better after this tough long day.

    Man watching all these guys talk about what Kobe meant to them and how he impacted them really made it sink in. He’s really gone. All of today felt like it just wasn’t real. He was healthy yesterday and was congratulating Lebron on passing him up. Now he’s passed on. Life is crazy and this goes to show you never know what will happen tomorrow. My heart is heavy. My prayers go out to him and his daughter, their family, all the other passengers, the pilots, and their families and friends. This was a sad day. A legend that will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace

    Man, even after his career Kobe was still helping NBA players without asking for a thing in return. It’s amazing that he kept in contact with so many people, even kids of NBA players like Shareef O’Neal. Sad to see him go like this, him and his daughter were seen at games all around the NBA, seems like he was trying to build her into a future star and letting her soak in the experience. I send my respect to everyone who lost their life in this accident.

    Can you even imagine how difficult it was for him in that moment? The moment he knew that not only his own life was about to end, but that of his daughter...a life he helped create. Can you imagine how he felt as a father knowing he couldn't protect her? Can you imagine him holding her, consoling her, telling her he loved her as that helicopter went down? I can tell you, Kobe Bryant's greatest fear was realized today. And it wasn't the fear for his own life, but for that of his beautiful daughter. rest in peace gigi and kobe :(
