Holy ****. His kids as well. This put trivial sh*t in perspective. 

I really hope that isn't true. Bad enough for his wife already.

FOX reporting his kids were NOT onboard. Praying this is the case.

One of the most epic moments I've ever seen in sports. Only Kobe (on an awful Lakers team) could upstage the historic Warriors record on the same night.

I remember when he first came up as a High School stand out and remember watching his dad in the NBA. That Smile is what I will always remember that he had with his excellence on the court.  Condolences to his family. 

                          RIP KOBE BRYANT

This is a shocker.  I watched some news piece a couple of weeks ago where he was so upbeat and psyched to be coaching his daughter's basketball team.  Said he was happy and did not miss playing.  RIP to one of the all time basketball greats.

One of the more irrational fears I have is dying in a plane/helicopter crash. Terrifying and absolutely nothing you can do.

 

Kobe left behind 4 girls. Sad. Rip

Helicopters and small planes are dangerous, its not an irrational fear.

All I’m going to say is that as far as his intentions on the legacy he left and his wishes for Lebron, go see his final Instagram. He was telling lebron to take the lakers to the next level. Minor in comparison to his familys grief but still.

ABC just reported his daughters were on board too. Holy hell. 

Quote

12:35 PM PT -- Kobe's daughter Gianna Maria Onore -- aka GiGi -- was also on board the helicopter and died in the crash ... reps for Kobe tell TMZ Sports. She was 13.

We're told they were on their way to the Mamba Academy for a basketball practice when the crash occurred. The Academy is in nearby Thousand Oaks.

This is terrible.  Lost my brother when he was in his early 40's.  He left 2 kids behind.  It's been 4 years and thank god the kids are doing well but the shock and sadness take a long time to overcome.   Still think about him almost daily.

Kind of welled up when I heard about this..  brought me back to that day.  God bless the family he leaves behind.

 

 

Sorry to hear that, man.  Never knew.

Another player and her parent were 2 of the 3 others. I'm thinking the pilot was the 5th.

That's most likely the case.

Being a Laker fan fan since they were in Minneapolis I'm just stunned by this.
