My heart is so heavy everytime I see Vanessa post.

I can’t imagine the pain she is going through.
Losing Kobe is so tough for her.

And her daughter as well.

God whyyyy

Smush interview:

Quote:
The toughest pill to swallow on today for me has been the fact that I didn’t get a chance to verbally speak with my brother to not only reconcile our differences but to find out if he actually had a relationship with The Lord Almighty. As today proves no matter how successful we are in life, when God calls for His breathe back our time here on earth is up. And if we don’t invest our time wisely here on earth, our life in eternity can be a very bad ordeal.

I do truly Pray his relationship with The Lord was real, and that Jesus was Lord over his life and not just as a Savior.

Amazing vid dubs!

And (bleep) being the Goat, all Kob wanted was being the elephant!

Such a terrible loss! I’m still shook by it. Hope his family (and the other families) finds some semblance of normalcy after this tragedy.

Little Capri. And Kobe's sister Sharia. This warms my heart.

The goal of the assembly was to help students cope with grief after not only the tragedy involving Bryant, but also the death of school staff members.

The Burj Khalifa building all the way over in Dubai.

Global.

Your hero's hero.


China has been in lock down mode because of the Corona virus, otherwise we would see tons of more tributes from them. They loved Kobe, people call in sick in order to watch the last game of Kobe.


Especialy when Kobe just wished us Chinese fans Happy Lunar New Year
2 days before his death!

Arash Markazi, Mark Potts @ Los Angeles Times

Quote:
He (Kobe) told me he wouldn’t be at the season opener because he was going to Natalia’s volleyball game that night.
When I asked him why he rarely went to Lakers games he smiled. “I have my routine at home,” he said. “It’s not that I don’t want to go, but I’d rather be giving B.B. a shower and sing Barney songs to her.
I played 20 years and I missed those moments before. “For me to make the trip up to Staples Center, that means I’m missing an opportunity to spend another night with my kids when I know how fast it goes. …
I want to make sure the days that I’m away from them are days that I absolutely have to be. I’d rather be with them than doing anything else.” 21 hours ago – via Arash Markazi, Mark Potts @ Los Angeles Times

That's why he came to games with Gianna. Gigi's love for the game brought Kobe back to basketball. It was his chance to spend some father-daughter bonding time with her. Bianca and Capri will never know him. Natalia and Gigi were just getting to bond with him on a deeper level. Feel so bad for them.

I’ve been reluctant to put my feelings into words. My brain refuses to accept that both Kobe and Gigi are gone. I can’t process both at the same time. It’s like I’m trying to process Kobe being gone but my body refuses to accept my Gigi will never come back to me. It feels wrong. Why should I be able to wake up another day when my baby girl isn’t being able to have that opportunity?! I’m so mad. She had so much life to live. Then I realize I need to be strong and be here for my 3 daughters. Mad I’m not with Kobe and Gigi but thankful I’m here with Natalia, Bianka and Capri. I know what I’m feeling is normal. It’s part of the grieving process. I just wanted to share in case there’s anyone out there that’s experienced a loss like this. God I wish they were here and this nightmare would be over. Praying for all of the victims of this horrible tragedy. Please continue to pray for all.

No words to express my sorrow for her. I just hope she has a strong support system. Same for Natalia. As messed up as it is to say, Bianka and Capri will come out all right, but I kind of fear for Natalia as she heads off to college with this fresh wound out in the open for the world to see

I really liked Simmons' recollection of a phone call with Kobe in 2012, to talk leadership. And the last line of this piece is heartbreaking as well.

The best tributes for me personally have been all the motivational videos posted on youtube, if you wanna honor the man keep his mentality alive. Here are a few:

and here is an amazing 30 minute video of his career:
