Kobe Bryant

I'm sure everyone has heard about this by now. I'm a lifelong diehard Lakers fan, and he was obviously one of the greatest Lakers ever. It was pretty shocking news, and even more sad that one of his daughters also died in the crash, along with 7 other people.

I was never even a big Lakers or Kobe fan, but this has hit me hard also. Maybe it is just being a parent and not being able to imagine that in those last moments, Kobe as a father could do nothing to protect his daughter from harm. Just really sad. It was also obvious that he adored his girls and he will be very missed by his family.

I’m in the same boat. Can’t say he was ever a favorite of mine. Although I respected his immense talent. That being said, the thought of what their last moments were like is horrifying. It’s really hit me today. I’ve had a sick feeling all day.

Nico Harrison was Kobe’s Nike handler and has been close to him for years. It can’t be an easy time for him.

I didn't even realize until yesterday, that he had a daughter so young. That's particularly sad, because she won't even remember her father.
