Been watching new, tributes, memorials of Kob all day, figured a bit out
 

 
I've been watching a lot of people talk about it, watching a lot of people grieve. I can't move on just yet, and I don't want to look at photos of him and his daughter anymore. It's just too personal a loss. It was really hard watching T Mac f*ghting tears just to speak about his friend, Fizdale on The Jump looked like he was already at the damn funeral.

Three people stood out the most. Jerry West saying that he felt like he's lost a son. Shannon Sharpe said it felt like we lost a family member. Ice Cube, in an eerie moment for me, said almost exactly what I have been thinking all day, that people don't understand the love people in Los Angeles have for Kobe. And I realized today that even if he never won a single title, it would have been the same, he would have been the favorite son of the city the rest of his life.

I'm a grown a*s man. I don't follow celebrities, I don't have social media, I don't give a fu*k what actors do outside their screen roles. But Kob was like a guy you and all your friends knew. My mom called me to ask me if I was okay because she bought me one of my most prized possessions, a Lakers hat when she made us move to back to LA. My sister asked if I wanted to talk and I said I don't want to talk to fu*king nobody today. It wasn't until watching all the videos and reflecting on people checking in on me that I realized Jerry West and Shannon Sharpe were right. This sh*t hurts like the loss a family member. In that light, I can understand why I've had such a reaction and I don't feel so bad about myself having an awful couple of days.

Slap, prop, I don't care, it's not important man. Take care of yourselves.

Man it's another human being that you grew up with that died fam. I'm having a bad couple days too. Today worse than yesterday. They were playing his last retirement game on ESPN, I couldn't watch it man. That smile that Kobe always had. That enjoyment that he had for the game, and just was pure excellence man on and off the court.

I do podcasts, and I just tried to do it live, and I can't do it live man. I gotta tape this sh*t in a farewell video i'm doing. How the fu*k am I saying "Farewell to Kobe Bryant" man in death? This don't make sense man. Kobe is like Super man fam in real life. Kobe, Michael Jordan all these guys are beyond legendary. Real life super heroes.

This sh*t crazy man!

This sh*t is surreal. Feel like I lost a family member. I had to stop watching TV yesterday bc they were talking about him on every channel and couldnt stop crying. I dont even be crying like that but this sh*t had me fu*ked up for real. sh*t is crazy how you don't realize someones impact until their gone. Kobe was supposed to grow old and own a team and be one of the influential retired athletes of our generation.

Just doesn’t feel right with him not being around any more.

I never cried for someone dying whom I had never met a day in my life, but this time was completely different. I was glad to see I wasn't the only one who mourned like that for his passing and was glad to see so many people care that much about him.

It really does feel like I lost someone close yesterday. Several family members checking in on me and sh*t after finding out what happened to Kob, same situation as you. I had a rough two days.

I’m realizing that Kobe was the only icon that I actually had man. Just the other day I was ecstatic to see that he appeared on All the Smoke. Like fu*k, I can’t believe that he’s gone, along with this daughter that the world couldn’t wait to see carry on his legacy on the court. Until yesterday, I really didn’t know how much he meant to me. My favorite basketball player of all time man. It’s so sad. And to see the way it affects the world just makes it that much harder to accept. Rip Bean

the reason u feel like u lost someone close is because kobe was on espn everyday heavily featured........u should probably send a thank you to tim duncan for not wanting the publicity & being boring because of that all the media attention went to kobe

Appreciate you posting this OP, much respect.

Multitude of folks feel this way but will hide it because in someone's eyes can look crazy, what you crying for you never met him?

Still can't get over a fact legend of the game just vanished. Tough motherfu*ker like Kobe gone? No fu*king way.

I hope him and his daughter are playing hoops somewhere.

Yeah I was just arguing with my friends a few months ago about crying over celebrities deaths. Like “man id never do that sh*t!” But I was close as hell with this one. I think it hurts a lot more cuz I’m a dad with 2 daughters and his daughter was with him. And I kinda forgot that he’s been on the helicopter sh*t for a minute so “Kobe died in a helicopter crash” didn’t even look right at 1st.

And I wasn’t even the Kobe Guy growing up. I was Iverson all day. To the point where my friends would ask “aiight man who’d win in a 1 on 1?” And is still say Iverson.

I feel you man. The replay of tonight's game was just too much.
Today definitely hit me harder than yesterday. Yesterday was shock, today was the realization that it was real and Kobe gone forever.

We literally saw Kobe grow up in front of us. Going to prom with Brandy. Air balling and then becoming KOBE BRYANT SLAM DUNK GIANT. All the ones pegged as the next and he did it. He was a true living legend.

LOL!!! I remember that air ball he shot when he first got with the Lakers. He was so young, c*cky, vibrant. Man that made me laugh man, how you said it. Thank You man! It felt like he took us on the journey with him from the very beginning.

I remember that playoff series at the beginning of their run, where Shaq fouled out, and Kobe took over in overtime, and everybody wanted to see if he could carry the Lakers to the W with Shaq out the game. It was his time to shine, and he brought it home.

I think money story is so special because dude was drafted with the #1 pick

He didnt go to a top university

He was selected with the 13 pick out of high school and was on the bench behind eddie jones averaging 7 points a game

Then he just worked hard and took his sh*t to the next level and we were watching the whole time

now hes gone but I do believe he has served his purpose on this planet while he was here.

It's eerie that two of the most influential, young, powerful, focused, independent (not owned by any other entity or run by handlers) black men in LA are both dead now.

I played pro ball overseas and high major in college. But even before all that when I was alone, in the gym, crying tears bcuz I wasn’t seeing the results I wanted in the gym, Kobe was one of the guys that helped me push through. When I began watching Film it was around the time “Kobe Doing Work” the spike lee joint came out. The way he broke down film and was so driven to find new ways to score and counter defensive schemes helped me throughout my college and Pro career. His relentlessness and passion gave me chills when I got buckets at West 4th in New York running down the court making that face he always made. No I didn’t know him, but knew 2 players that played for LA at the time. I would ask them all the time what was it like playing with Kobe. DJO told me no matter who was guarding him in practice, everyone knew he was gonna score at will. And Devin Ebanks taught me workouts that he got from Kobe that I implemented into my routine all the way up until I hung up my shoes. I don’t know him personally but man.... this hurts


It’s hard to mourn someone that you didn’t know openly bcuz people make you feel like you clout chasing. This man impacted me deeply and helped me in ways he will never know

Yeah haven’t had the stomach to watch espn since this happened. Honestly haven’t felt like this over anyone and the feeling is unexplainable. I’m just numb brothers.

Take care of yourselves these couple days and remember that you should do whatever makes you the happeiest at any point in life because there’s no redo of this sh*t.

Get it out bro, I felt the same way. I took the day off from work because I knew I couldn’t handle any conversations about Kobe.

I’ve had a lot of emotions over the last few days. The one thing I have to keep reminding myself is to “protect your energy”. For me that’s isolation, whatever works for you do it.
