    Our guys at the Pro Bowl did their piece in honoring Bryant's memory.

    Sad that his daughter died, but the man was a POS in his treatment of women. The way I see it, the woman he raped got some delayed justice. I make no apologies for this statement. My sister was violently raped 7 years ago and I have no sympathy for KB.

    His memory does not deserve honor. The only sadness is for his daughters and perhaps his wife, though she knew what kind of person he was.

    Why were they in a chopper in the first place? I'm sure that chopper ride wasn't a necessity. Look at Stevie Ray Vaughan. He died in a chopper crash and it wasn't necessary. Civilians have no need to be in a chopper. They are much more dangerous than fixed wing aircraft. Sad to see such a waste.

    Same reason people ride in airplanes -- get to where they are going faster.

    He didn't like sitting in LA traffic or in confined places like a car. From news reports, he helicoptered to games when he played. Sounds like a rich person's issue.

    Per ESPN there was another 13yo girl killed along with her parents. The girls were teammates.

    I won’t go long in this thread but it’s been discussed about living life every day, appreciate it! Live it as high as you can! Life is to short to take anything for granted.

    They said on Undisputed this morning that he took a helicopter almost everywhere, to practice, games, everywhere. They said unless you were a pilot, probably no one has been in a helicopter more than Kobe.

    It's a very sad story. I keep thinking about all the other people killed in the crash who don't get talked about. Just the nature of fame, and the lack of it.
