Not a Kobe fanboy by any stretch, but that's sad as shit.  RIP.

 

This right here.

Not a fan, but the dude was an absolute assassin on the basketball court.

This is a fucking gut punch.  And I'll second whoever said fuck helicopters.

Yeah, Kobe probably isn't someone that they already have a pre-recorded in memoriam piece for.

Wtf man.  I spent my entire childhood watching Kobe.  I hated him because he was so fucking good.  We would have heated debates at the lunch tables in Elementary, middle school and high school about who was the GOAT between him and Michael.  
 

So sad, an absolute legend that was unstoppable in the court.  The more haters he had, the better he would fucking play.  Sad for his daughters and a huge loss for all of sports.  RIP

Lost a legend. Too young. Thoughts and best wishes to is family and young children.

Fucking unreal.

Life is too short. Hang out with your family and friends and tell them all you love them as much as you can.

Shit.

Holy shit. I hated Kobe. That's how you know he was great.

 

RIP Mamba. You broke my heart, a lot.

Pretty much my feeling exactly.  Great player.  True professional.  Legend.

Damn...I clicked on Wiki to look up his birthday.  They already have his death listed.

 

I never was the biggest fan of his; but recognize the impact he had on the game.  Huge, huge, huge loss  for fans of basketball and the NBA.  I know he meant a lot to many people.  I still see him as a dad, gone  to 4 daughters, and that is tragic in and of itself.

again, RIP.

Holy shit. Listening to the Pro Bowl and just heard. Wow.

Sad news. One of my least favorite athletes of all time, but not a fate I'd wish on anyone. RIP, Black Mamba.

ABC News just broke into the Pro Bowl coverage to report it and showed the wreckage still on fire.

He wasn't my favorite player. In fact I actively rooted against him. Because he was on the Lakers and he was a bad ass.

But, 41 is way way too young and dying in a crash is extra shitty. 

Rest well

He was on Jimmy Crymmel recently talking about how he takes his helicopter sometimes because he hates driving. Crazy.
