I think I've entered a different phase of this thing. I'm finding it more difficult to look at his face and watch things about him. Even speaking on him in the past tense, I still get a pang of WTF??? I miss Kobe. I miss seeing him around. I enjoyed seeing him happy, seeing him living, seeing him write the next chapter in his life. There was so much more to come from him...I'm not ashamed to say this has wounded me deeply in ways I don't even understand. Maybe one day it will make some semblance of sense.

Continue to Rest in Paradise Kobe, Gigi.

Could not have said it better. I just started randomly thinking about Kobe as I sit here eating lunch. The image of him and Pau embracing with confetti falling around them. It's a famous image, and my mind just keeps going back to it. It was one of my happiest moments and certainly one of theirs. It's still a joyous memory but now it brings an undertone of sadness with it. Hard to explain but I'm sure you understand. Still hurts man.

Same. My emotions are everywhere. I loved him so much. I still adore the man. I love his family, they're like our family. I find myself watching clips from that treacherous day over and over again and I don't know why I do that to myself. It hurts more every time. The pain hasn't subsided. I keep imagining his smile, how he was such a good guy and misunderstood his entire life. He finally found peace and the world finally embraced him for the man we have lovingly known, adored, and idolized for 24 years. As MJ stated, a piece of me died that day. And then Covid happened, and it's like Kobe and Gianna's will was just too strong for this planet. They left and everything has stopped since. Man I miss them and want them back, I really want them back.

I don't know if anyone's posted this, it's from April. Amazing story from Gordon Hayward on his first interaction with Kobe after his retirement.

Yeah, me4, except the "making sense" part. There is no sense in this. Never was and never will be. Just tragic death.

I think we should also do something special every year on LG to honor him.

Kobe Bryant Day approved by Orange County officials

Quote:
No one can bring Kobe Bryant back to life, but Orange County officials have decided to honor his legacy with a day in his name. The community’s Board of Supervisors voted to officially make August 24th, Kobe Bryant Day.


Quote:
The California resolution, published on Aug. 11, passed on without hesitation reported The Shade Room.

The resolution stated, “During his career, Kobe Bryant’s numbers on his jerseys were 8 and 24, therefore a fitting day to celebrate his legacy would be August 24.”

This “Kobe Day” recognition is particularly special as it falls one day after his actual birthday, the first since untimely demise. Bryant was born on August 23, 1978.

That is so special, honestly. He's really stepped up to help that family grieve. Really impressive, (bleep) breaks my heart and puts it all together again

Me too

I’ve heard rumor that he would like to finish his career in LA (as a Laker, not those other people). I would love to have him come back and do a ceremonial final year here before he retires.

^i consider things like that one of the few “musts” that any proper owner does if they have respect towards fans/franchise beyond bottom line or results. Respect the legends. At a minimum Pau deserves a 1-day K to retire as a Laker

So I was bored and decided to go through the few pages of this thread and most of our reactions are so shocking, it’s like everyone was in shell shock what a horrible day that was and it was during Sunday morning when the Helicopter crashed.
