This is incredibly sad. Gigi had a promising basketball career ahead of her too sad

I couldn't believe it when I saw the news alerts! So sad and tragic, a man who retired at the top and onto the next chapter of his life! I cannot imagine the pain of his family.

21 yrs ago, I named my son after him. This is just awful news - heartbroken for his family.

DS is a big basketball fan and is really upset. He’s really taken it hard sad.

I’ve seen various reports saying his daughters either were or weren’t in the helicopter with him

This is just so sad. Praying for strength for the surviving family

GrapefruitGin Sun 26-Jan-20 21:05:34

Sadly it’s been confirmed one of his daughters was with him, she was a talented basketball player with a very exciting future ahead of her sad

So terribly sad. I read (although so many conflicting reports) that they were on the way to her basketball practice with another player and parent.
His poor wife and other daughters.

MirandaWest Sun 26-Jan-20 21:07:19

I didn’t realise how young his youngest daughter was sad

BunnyTails Sun 26-Jan-20 21:07:51

This news shocked me to the core. An amazing career, a millionaire many times over, won an Oscar, a sports legend and bang killed in a moment at 41. With his daughter too.

So so sad. His youngest daughter was only born last June.

RIP to all those who lost their life in this tragic accident.

Bryant was a wonderful basketball player - but not a wonderful human being.

I can't stop thinking about his wife how awful for her.

He was at a time in his life where he could enjoy what he had built with his family and it's all gone in an instant.

YesIDoLoveCrisps Sun 26-Jan-20 21:18:27

Why wasn’t he a wonderful human being?

@drowningmysorroes Don’t be so horrible. I have a basketball-loving son as well and he was shocked. Kobe Bryant was a hero to many young basketball players, one of the all-time greats.

I’m incredibly sad considering That these are people I have never met and never would have met

I had never heard of him tbh, but my sons mentioned it. Very sad.
