Sad deal, especially at that age and kids also on the helicopter. He was easily one of the best to ever play the game.

C'mon man. That's uncalled for. She wouldn't testify. Why? You don't know, I don't know. His wife forgave his adultery. Let it go, especially now. That's pathetic.

Huge loss, especially considering his young daughter was also on board.

When He wants you. It is your time.

41 is so young. Prayers to his family, teammates and fans.

i hope he's remembered first as a loving father and faithful husband, adored by his children. what a great role model particularly for the black community which struggles with single-parent families. i never follow the nba, thus i missed his career. but the images yesterday of him with his now-dead daughter sitting on the bench were beyond heartbreaking yet heartwarming at the same time. life is so fragile.

Really sad. I suspect Kobe told the helo pilot to go because Kobe's daughter didn't want to miss her BB game because of the fog. Most likely a case of poor judgement by someone to fly in the bad fog.

RIP to all 9 who perished, including Kobe Bryant and his 13 year old daughter Gianna. Truly tragic, prayers for all lives lost & their families too in this time of need.

There are ample two parent households in the black community you never hear about, who happened to never cheat on their spouse. I know several & have several in my family, including cousins, uncles, friends, co-workers, church family, etc. Stereotypes are amazing. Boy I could go on & on, on that topic, but yes this is a sad situation. I expected the typical, "I don't watch the NBA" comments. Another deep rooted stereotype. Anyhow, I wasn't a Kobe fan mainly because of his arrogance most of his career. Yep, there was a time he didn't have much humility, but he seemed to mature a great deal in the past maybe 5 years. What matters most is being ready to step into eternity, hopefully prepared.

maybe you can explain why not watching the nba is a stereotype?
