    This is why I get annoyed when people say “it’s just a game who cares”.... athletes are our hero’s as kids; and inspiration as adults to be the best we can be. Kobe just so happen to be #1 example of that.

    This hurts as a NBA fan, Celtics fan.. I grew up rooted against that #8 and that 24. Saw him rise and fall and rise even higher. He was the best villain on the court. The only competitor you feared in clutch moments. If you beat him, it was a true victory. I always respected his greatness and loved what he brought to the Celtics Lakers historic rivalry
