    RIP Kobe Bryant

    Man, this is some sad news. By many accounts a humble and generous guy. Generational talent. Waaay too young.

    RIP Kobe Bryant

    Just saw; thatís very sad. Never a Lakers fan, but I liked watching that guy play....straight up killer on the court.

    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    I suspect there's logic behind the madness, but I'm too dumb to see it.

    The creative work he was doing is as impressive as his playing career. He didn't just endorse products for money. Smart man gone too soon.

    Doesn't mean he deserved to die, I extend my condolences to his family, but the guy wasn't a fucking role model either.

    He's borderline for deserving a fuckeulogy, so let's not deify him postmortem.

    What makes you think we all want to hear your worldview in every thread?

    RIP to a human being with four little kids.

    If you don't like it, there's a button for that.

    Something tells me they'll be just fine.

    Also, he was a rapist, that isn't my worldview, that's a fucking fact.

    Well that's fucking brutal. And his wife was not on it? She might not be "just fine".

    Looks like they are pulling back on that claim. But maybe one daughter on board. Probably just tons of speculation for awhile.

    Itís morbid, but as a father, itís unfathomable to be in a situation of imminent death with a child - wanting to take away their fear.

    Completely baseless. No other reports so far on others. Just speculation

    https://youtu.be/VIgHVlb151c from a ski perspective, I was living in Vail when the whole rape thing went down at that exclusive Resort and a friend of mine was working at the resort and said that the whole vibe was very weird. Sucks for him. I always thought he was a decent guy. Got mixed up with the wrong women evidently

    RIP Kobe Bryant

    Watching the flight track, looks like the pilot flew straight into a mountain. Crazy in a 13 million dollar aircraft.

    Crazy that his fortune killed him. Hope his family was not on board.
