I first heard about Kobe Bryant’s death on radio. But when the radio host mentioned about Kobe Bryant, I wasn’t sure if he was telling the truth or it was someone else. When I went back home and googled, it was really Kobe Bryant, who were among the 5 people who died from a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California.
I am still in shock, I couldn’t believe it. Kobe is too young to die! He is only 41 years old. Why did he have such a short life. He was literally at the Lakers game last night witnessing Lebron surpassing his NBA all-time points record. At this point, it’s sad, it’s sad for the entire NBA, it’s sad for any human being. Kobe, like him or not, is a legend.
This is the last tweet by Kobe from last night when he congratulate Lebron James’ NBA all-time scoring milestone.
Continuing to move the game forward @KingJames. Much respect my brother 💪🏾 #33644

I still remember Kobe scoring 81 points against the Toronto Raptors. I still remember seeing him coming out of the hotel and walk to the team bus and I saw him very up close. I still remember going to the Raptors game when it’s his last game visiting Toronto during his retiring season.
Rest in peace Kobe! You will be missed.
My condolences to his wife, kids and family.
