His wife, Vanessa, was believed to not be on board. How terribly tragic for her. 

I was thinking about this. How is she going to make it through this tragedy? I can't even begin to understand how she's feeling right now. 

 

RIP, Kobe and kids.

The fact that they are continuing to play this dumb ass pro bowl is amazing. 

Why would you expect them to stop?

Unless kobe is a pilot there is no way his 4 kids were on board, unless the count is wrong 

4 kids, pilot, Rick fox.... apparently everyone was on the chopper. 

Probably going to take a bit until we actually know WTF.

It was dumb to play it to begin with.

You think they are just going to call the game?

Someone show the source for the kids mention. That’s hopefully fake news.

They said it when ABC broke into Pro Bowl.

It was a live report on the ABC break-in.  They were on the phone with a reporter in L.A.  He said it.

I’d be surprised if he took a 7 month old without her mom. Maybe not all kids were there. 

I was thinking the same thing. And if Rick Fox was allegedly on board, maybe none of the daughters were there too?

well let's hope the kids were not on board. horrible news. and rick fox apparently.  no need for today's games to go on.

and helicopters are really hard to fly  - very finicky.  they can go down for odd reasons.   esp in hard or steep terrain with extreme wind shifts and coastal drafts. 

anyway just horrible news.

Can we get some more red banners going on every page about this? Maybe a pop up ad that just blares a siren horn and flashes a picture of Kobe?

Also today is so foggy here. I mean visibility is near zero. The fog is so thick you could barely see in front of you.

Fog so thick, you can barely see your own cataracts

smart move. 

Absolutely.  I can't imagine any of the players actually feel like playing.  Kobe was either a teammate, contemporary, or inspiration to every single player in the league.  It's the right thing to do.

Kobe hadn't been torched like this since Mother's Day 2011.

I know it's hard but try not to be a dick. Guy is leaving behind 4 kids and a wife and made a hell of a large impression inside and outside of the NBA.

All star game in a week.  They may just turn it all into a tribute and not play.  WAY to soon.  Fuck I hope his kids are not in that wreck.
