Kobe'>Underrated Kobe moment — comes within 1 stop and 1 improbably huge Tim Thomas moment of making Round 2 w/ Odom and a bunch of bench guys. Lost in OT, Kobe had 50. Suns win in 7. Next round would’ve been Clips vs Lakers.
Shareef opens up to @brhoops about receiving one of Kobe's last text messages and how Kobe's death impacted him: “My phone background is just literally that message and I look at it every day because ... it just motivates me.”
Kobe was so much more than an athlete, he was a family man. That was what we had most in common. I would hug his children like they were my own and he would embrace my kids like they were his. His baby girl Gigi was born on the same day as my youngest daughter Me’Arah.
So sad to hear the heartbreaking news of the deaths of Kobe and his daughter Gianna. Kobe was a true legend and inspiration to so many. Sending my condolences to his family and friends and the families of all who lost their lives in the crash. RIP Legend?
