I was never a fan of the Lakers. I wasn’t a Kobe fan, either. But, I respected him and I understand what he was for the league. It was such a surreal moment yesterday when the news came in. 3B sent me a text because he follows a lot of sports. So, this is all I’m going to say, RIP, Mamba.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“For 20 seasons, Kobe showed us what is possible when remarkable talent blends with an (sic) absolute devotion to winning. He was one of the most extraordinary players in the history of our game with accomplishments that are legendary: five NBA championships, an NBA MVP award, 18 NBA All-Star selections, and two Olympic gold medals.” – Adam Silver
