    Kobe showed his whole repertoire that he learned/taken, improved/evolved from His Airness. Offense,defense, moves.If he is not the G.O.A.T, then he is one of the greatest of all time to ever played the game.He gave everything, his soul, his all. He proved that everybody deserves a second/more chances. Yes he was flawed,complicated and all the labels you can throw at this guy, Let him rest, cut him some slack. Have some little shame,dignity and honor.He became a very good father, accomplished a lot of things that a lot of people won't approve or acknowledge at all. Yeah we are so flawed too. Dont forget. May you rest in peace Kobe, gianna, john,keri, alyssa,sarah, payton, ara and christina. I and my family will always include you in our prayers together with our loved ones who already passed away. Thank you for the Mama Mentality. Thank you for the love of Basketball.We will always strive to be a better version of us each day.MAMBA OUT 8/24.2

    Its crazy cause no matter what highlights you see, it is those moments with him and Jordan, even when he is just standing next to him, that are iconic! Is like watching 2 assassins ready to go to work, two Michelangelos ready to paint on the NBA canvas.



    The G.OA.T. More charisma, more drama, more cockiness, more versatility, flashier, played longer, came out of high school than MJ. I would watch Kobe anytime over MJ. Kobe is like Bruce Lee, Tupac, ...An immortal.

    I’m truly truly saddened for Kobe, Gigi and the others. Kobe deserves to be honored for his accomplishments. Baby boy just like Nipsey, left the youth and all of us jewels to pattern our lives after. Set goals, make commitments, dedicate and work hard to achieve them. Do not under any circumstances give up. It’s hard to really put in words how I truly feel. But know this. I find no fault in Kobe Bean Bryant !! He is my baby brother, different father and mother. He was given rare gift or calling, he developed his craft, skills, abilities..... and see what he became. He utilized what he was given, and himself- the mind body and spirit. And look what he became. I refuse to speak anything negative upon “his” being. Rest In Peace, King Kobe, Precious Gigi and the other 7 who left this place in bodily form. And prayers to each and every loved one, family, friends and fans !! Remember this,

    Rest in peace Kobe and Gianna and the 7 others❤ I believe Kobe passed away this soon to let every single person acknowledge this human being that existed! I have to be honest my brothers and my dad were the ones into basketball games. Don't get me wrong, I knew who Kobe was as an Athlete, but I never realized what sweet human being he was full with enthusiasm and motivation looking out for others, an amazing father and role model. I believe he died to make humanity rise in every single person and to let them know how short life is and that persuaing your dreams is everything. I habe no doubt that Kobe and Gianna as well as the others affected by this tragical death are in paradise/heaven❤
