As a long time Laker fan this one is tough to swallow as a man, a father and a fan.

Whether you hated Kobe as he took your teams will and soul out of games, you just had to love him as a basketball purist. We watched Kobe go from a teenager to a mature man. He was a great ambassador to the game after he retired and helped countless people whether they were professionals or the way he inspired every day people.

Words can't express his loss to the world and he will be sadly missed and never forgotten.

I was fortunate to see Kobe play in person once and was just mesmerized by his matriculate routine to his craft and the effort he got out of his teammates. This was post Shaq and he was the main star. Effortless precision and just a site to behold.

RIP Kobe, there will be no other like you.

Thank You for allowing me the opportunity as a guest to post. You have a nice site here.

My heart goes out to the family of all the victims of this horrific tragedy. I live in LA and it's a town in mourning, dazed and in shock.

Tuesday night should be a special night at Staples Center as it will be the Lakers first game off their road trip and they play the hometown Clippers. It will be all LA affair. I know the team will put on a lot of special tributes around Kobe and what he meant to the team and the community. Unless you live in LA you really don't understand the impact he has had on our community while playing and well after playing. He poured his heart and soul into everything that he did.

He will be sorely missed. I echo what you said earlier as well.

God Bless his family and all the families involved.

Thanks again for the opportunity.

Not only was Kobe one of the all time greats in the modern era of the NBA but he was a greater father and person in off the court. He had his faults on and off the court but who doesn't. One thing no one can deny is that Kobe Bryant had an intense work-ethic which helped him win numerous NBA championships, titles, and even an Academy Award. RIP man and I will see you in the resurrection of all mankind. Hope I get to talk with you then.



What a long strange trip.

Without Kobe, I'm not even here posting this. I was 18 when Kobe entered the draft, became a first time Kobe fan, Laker fan, and sports fan all at once because of him in '97. Saw him play on avg 1-2x a year, then when I lived a few blocks away from Staples for 5+ years, some years 5x+. Grew up together, gave me some of my fondest sports memories growing up, and will always be sorely missed and revered.

Thank you so much Kobe, and god bless you and your family.
