Tragic helicopter crash in Calabasas CA this morning.  I was just reading about his kind comment to LeBron regarding LBJ's passing his scoring mark.   He was 41.

Stunned. Shocked.  Deeply saddened.  I'm at a loss for words.

I know enough of his reputation to be saddened by this.

Was watching on KTLA and they're saying his daughter was with him. I'm thinking they would've been watching the game together where LeBron James passed him for all-time scoring last night. :^(

EDIT: confirmed now his 13 year old daughter Gianna was with him.

Stunned, shocked & saddened to hear the horrific news about Kobe Bryant & his daughter. Thoughts are with his family & loved ones at this extremely sad time.

This hit me hard.

Kobe is my favorite basketball player, and people were far too quick to
forget how great he was after he retired. Rule changes and other
factors make most discussions regarding Bryantís possible GOAT
status pointless, but what Iím certain of is that he was the fiercest
competitor Iíve ever watched play the game.

Sad to hear Bryantís daughter was among those that were killed in the
helicopter.

I lost respect for the guy as a person after he raped that girl years ago.
