    If the criticism in the other thread is that lots of other people died and we should be sad for them, then let's actually be sad for them, rather than actually be sad that a famous athlete died, but hide behind those other people when called on that athlete's character. How many of these names did you know?

    Wasn't it pretty much agreed that he raped a girl and paid her off? I don't follow sports.

    The wise thing to do is to let Danno talk to himself.

    I bet you didn’t get stuck behind him for miles in no passing zones while he aimlessly drifts from one side of the sky to the other as he tries to manage 4 dash-mounted smart phones though.
    I still call it The Jake.

    They go through extensive 30 minute training at Uber pilot school.

    I have heard some alternative facts. But time since hearing and not dredging up the past especially right now and putting it out there, I will leave it be.
    Tldr: Allegedly.

    These lives are no less important than Kobe's. Athletes shouldn't be held up on pedestals. The average person who has to grind out a life is more valuable to society than overpaid athletes

    Really?

    So the fry cook at your local McDonald's is more valuable than the guy who works his ass off and becomes one of the best at what he does? Athletes very well may be overpaid, but there's no denying that many of them have worked harder and achieved far more than the average schmuck.

    While that doesn't necessarily mean their lives are worth more, it definitely means that their societal importance is greater. If they die, the ripple effect of their death travels far, far further than the fry cook. Even putting aside the "fans," when a famous athlete dies, huge numbers of people are affected - sports personalities are a big business. By pretty much any metric, the athlete is more important to society.

    No one is overpaid. The market pays what it pays. Actually, you could argue that NBA super duper stars like Kobe are actually underpaid due to the salary cap.

    Kobe was a piece of shit but also, I think, a really good father and had a lot of other great qualities as well. People are complex and can be both of these things. My friend has been the director / producer of the NBA 2K video game for the past 10-15 years and spent a decent amount of time with him, along with guys like LeBron and other top players. The Colorado thing always lingered in the back of his mind but says all of his interactions with Kobe were great and he genuinely liked and admired him as a human being. It's confusing for sure.

    This is the best take so far.
