Fuck TMZ and all those that provide them with information.
TBF they have been a reliable source of information on this. ABC sad all of his daughters died in the crash before withdrawing on that statement

TMZ also broke the news before the LA County Sheriff could notify the families. They are arseholes for doing that.

The police said nine people died, all those that rushed to break the news got something wrong.

So sad! Saw Kobe play a few times for the Lakers at the Staples including the 2000 Western Conference Finals game 7 against Portland. He and Shaq were on fire that night! He was one of the all-time greats.

Started playing basketball because of players like him, T-Mac, Iverson... Most competitive person ever possibly.

Response at games last night, comments from players, Doc Rivers, Kareem, Jerry West etc.


Lakers v Clippers on Tuesday evening Pacific time. That will be an emotional game and a celebration of Kobe as well.

Could be pilot error. It seems he was going to fast laterally ,184mph impact speed, at 1400 feet then he probably got a proximity sensor warning and quickly yanked back to climb fast but it was to late.

I have timestamped the video of where he pull up quickly, you can see the radar go up.

I remember that match so well, was studying for my a-levels and it looked like Pippen has helped nullify Jackson’s tactics

How far down were they in the 4th quarter? Must’ve been around 12 down with not long to go. Obviously it’s a long time so might be wrong but I’m sure Kobe set up Shaq for a big dunk to get them in the lead and the place (and me on the other side of the tv) went mental.

The emotion in that game was something I’d not experienced watch basketball before. They’d dominated that season and it looked like it was all going wrong. Great game.

It really was a great night. I can't remember the exact points deficit the Lakers had to overcome in the 4th. In fact, the Lakers hadn't been playing well for much of the game. It all turned in the 4th, and the place was going nuts!
