    Kobe is way more popular than mj. Kobe cares about others unlike all other celebrities. He used his time to help people while others are selfish and only care about themselves. An angel went back to heaven on 1.26.20

    My 86 year old grandmother who has never watched Basketball in her life has been devastated for the last 2 days since the news broke out. She refuses to open her TV --- every time something is announced about Kobe + Gigi, she just breaks down + cries, as if they were her *own* .... This is how deeply Kobe affected the world! May Kobe + Gigi Rest in the eternal LOVE of God's embrace. 💕🙏

    There are a few rare & special people, born on a mission to achieve & lead like few others: Mozart, Lincoln, Patton, MLK Jr. JFK, Hendrix, John Lennon, Bob Marley, Robin Williams, Andy Irons... Kobe Bryant. While there are many more Greats, the unique gift shared by these gifted souls was how they lived with a singular mission. - Some carried the burden against the greatest of inhumanities. Others became the most inspiring of their craft. We need both. For in war and in peace we need inspiration and guidance. Something so valuable that Kobe shared with all the greats on this list is genuineness. The truly inspiring greats reach us by showing us their humanity. Kobe, whether on days he was winning of failing, did not live with pretense. He always showed us who he was. Through his efforts he also reflected to us who we could be if we do our best. . . Such Greats are a gift to us, to show us what is possible. Why they were taken, after their greatest battles had been won - yet before they could just live to enjoy the rest of life with us, we may never know. Kobe Bryant thrilled the world from the first moment he lifted off - doing the impossible by rising out of Jordan’s shadow. When he stepped on the court, we believed anything was possible - 81 ! Five rings is one of his greatest feats, especially coming in the Duncan, Wade, Nowitski, Iverson, Lebron, Kidd, Garnett, Pierce era. His light may have shown brightest when, with the Olympics and the true World Championship on the line, all the greats turned to Kobe - and he took it home for all of us. For so many of us, you are the MVP of an entire era. Kobe we were also there for all of your mistakes. You had to grow up under the world’s first virtual microscope. Through this you showed us what devotion to hard work and focus on personal growth can do. You showed us how to survive in this new world, for aren’t we all under the microscope during these times? Like the rest of us, you were flawed. More than most of us, you were at times perfect. For both of these reasons you are hero to millions, at least, world wide. Kobe, you thrilled us, taught us about work ethic, stoicism against doubt & pain, and the journey to learning to be a teammate. You grew from being the brash kid into being the man which a whole league men consider to be their big brother. Most of all, every time you stepped on the court, you made us believe that for you anything was possible. When you stepped off the court we also believed anything was possible. You took a light with you when you left the league, and simply went and won an Oscar two years later! Kobe, there so much more that you could have achieved, and your beautiful family you could have shared so much more life with. I know some will say you were 'just a basketball player'. That is true. Like John Lennon was just a musician. Patton was just a general. Etc. That is all true. For now, I'm just a kid. I haven't done anything that anyone will remember. But I am going to go for it. I won't become a great general, or even 'just a great basketball player'. (I actually want to be a filmmaker, and tell stories, like you began doing- I had planned to meet you...) I don't want to be like Kobe playing ball. I want to be like Kobe, being the best at what I will do. I just learned of your daughter, Gianna. We never had a chance to truly know her. Prayers for you both. What more you both would have shown your light upon, we will never know. Prayers for your flight mates, with whom you shared in generosity. May the family and friends and greater community find some light in their stories, to carry forth for what they could have been. God Bless you Kobe Bryant. Thank you for inspiring my dad as a young man. Thank you for inspiring me as I grew up. For you, in whatever goal I am facing, I will take the shot. We will never forget Black Mamba.

    Taking his daughter to her basketball practice, by helicopter? How elitist can one be? I'm sure all the climate alarmist Libs will make him out to be a Saint, in spite of all that jet fuel he burned running errands for his kids. I personally don't care if he rode a wave of crude oil to work each day, but you know the SJW Libs at ESPN are going to sanctify him, in spite of their Progressive phony climate change agenda: Even though he was dropping off his kid with a chopper, which was not an uncommon form of transportation for him and his family?
