    Being from Chicago I grew up idolizing MJ, but I always respected Kobe’s game and loved watching him play. Hard to argue his talent. Such sad news. 
    He played high school basketball outside philly which was pretty Cool.  When he came I to the league I wasn’t a huge fan of him though mainly cause he didn’t really consider philly his hometown. Later on i gradually grew to respect him.

    Seems like mixed reporting. Might take time to get the facts. I sure hope the initial report was wrong.

    What a tragic loss for his family. So crazy. I was never a huge basketball fan, but I still remember the hype when he joined the league my senior year of high school and watching him play those early years in the league.
    It's a hopeless situation...

    That’s the downside to twitter in these moments. Lots of misinformation. Hope his daughters weren’t on board.   Sad day.

    Misinformation by news outlets that are supposed to be legitimate is awful, especially with something this serious.

    Yes TMZ usually gets it right. ESPN reporter said another parent and their daughter were others on board. Headed to basketball practice.  It’s horrible hate anyone dying but hits a bit harder when kids involved too,  heart breaking

    They wouldn't release the name if they weren't 100% accurate.

    Woj saying one of his daughters. Sounds like the one that was in that video going around a couple weeks ago. Heartbreaking

    They was such a cool video. Kind of humanized Kobe you know,  was a cool
    moment between a dad and daughter.  Now they are both gone.  Life can give you such a kick in the nuts sometimes.  Kind of numb right now and not even the biggest Kobe fan but so tragic

    This is an example of something that is actually horrible.
    Is actually heartbreaking.   

    It puts things into perspective. 
    Like getting or not getting tickets to a rock concert.

    Live every  day like it's your last. And always be sure to tell your loved ones that you love then when you or they leave.

    Yeah, Kobe is one of the top 10 most iconic American athletes of my lifetime. I never liked him a little but, respect, but never a fan. His daughter though, this went from sad to tragic in a fucking hurry
