I know there's another thread mentioning his death, but reading through it, there's some disrespectful things said on there too. I want a nothin' but love for Kobe thread, by the Jazzfanz. I think the right thing to do is for BASKETBALL FANS to share their Kobe moments and keepin it respectful for him. You may not have liked him, but you had to respect him. Kobe is a true legend. As a fan of basketball for the over the last 30 years, I have never seen anyone like Kobe Bryant. I still feel Jordan was the best to ever play, but I mean as far as on and off the court, I have to give it to Kobe. When he played the game, he did it in a fashion where you had no choice but to respect the player. When he was off the court, he lived his life in a fashion where you had no choice but to respect the man. If you love basketball, you loved Kobe. He had a fire that you hardly ever see players enter the league with and then maintain it throughout the career. I can't imagine what his family is going through with the loss of Kobe and to make it worse, they also lost 13 year old Gigi. I can't imagine the pain the other families of the other 7 victims are going through. This is so tragic, I was lost for words. Even being a Jazz fan, I'm a fan of basketball first and Kobe has been apart of many lives through his 20 year career and he was doing amazing things in his retirement as well. Watching his 60 point performance he dropped on us for his last game was bitter sweet. There was nothing that we could've done to stop Kobe that night. I found an older video on Kobe highlights VS. Utah. There's a lot that's missing but it was all I could find. I would love to see more love an appreciation for Kobe on this thread, with zero negative posted.
