Kobe Bryant: Killed in Helicopter crash (update: NTSB prelim. report)

Recommended Posts

This is so awful. Really hope the reports about his kids are inaccurate. I can't imagine a newborn being there without the mother.

 

2020 sucks so far.

Awful news! So was his daughters with him? Seeing some reports saying yes and some no. I certainly hope not, but wow! This really took me by surprise today. Sports world won't be the same for a long time.

Anyone heard/know why he was on the helicopter? 

He bought it a while ago to avoid traffic.

 

 

 

twitter is all over the place reporting who was on helicopter with him. Started with his kids and now saying rick fox.

Way to go CNN for breaking the news and immediately mentioning his sexual misconduct. 

 

And ABC reports 4 dead kids so they can 'break' the story.

 

And people wonder why so many in this country have completely tuned out the major media outlets.

I guess he always travelled by helicopter to avoid the heavy traffic in CA.

Yup. Journalism 2020 is all about getting it first, not right.

While big sports news, id be surprised if it goes that far 


I think it’s bigger than just “sports news.” He was a very well known personality outside of the world of sports and this is sudden and tragic. Not Pearl Harbor, but not nothing.

its all all about being first to report...not first for full story.

Hes is a well known celebrity 

 

hes been on national advertizing

 

many who don’t follow nba likely recognize him from the ads.

 

on top of that it’s a sudden died too soon story.

Not that it really matters, but I wonder if this will spread to the pro bowl players as the game goes on 

 

It has, and Drew Brees just spoke of it. 

 

Terrible sad. I didn’t realize he regularly used his own Sikorsky helicopter to commute from Newport Beach to the Staples Center. In that traffic, I get it. If you’re worth hundreds of millions, you can do stuff like that. Life itself is a risk. Take nothing for granted. 

 

RIP, prayers to his family.
