I need a positive memory right now.
This series is the reason I always hated the suns and I had a friend who would try and bury my Lakers to me always bragging when they lost....but this was the game where Kobe elevated to absoloute god tier for me and I relished watching the pain on the suns smug faces....Shawn Marrion and his ugly ass grandma lookin shot lol.

Crazy news. I got out of work an hour ago and when I got in the car, my dad told me. Shocked to say the least and I'm still processing the news. I'm not the biggest basketball fan out there, but I know who Kobe is. Just awful news, a terrible loss for both the sport and his loved ones. 41 is hardly any age at all. And I'm devastated to hear his daughter was on the helicopter too. RIP to all the victims and thoughts and prayers for their families.
2019 Fan-1 Climax, baby! Thanks to Dancing Stevie Renfield for the awesome sig!

This one is rough. I've have had everyone even non-spots fans tell me about Kobe's death. That's a testament of how important and big he was. Even if you were not a basketball or even a sports fan, you knew Kobe Bryant. From being a Lakers fan to saying "Kobe" when you threw a waded up piece of paper into the trash, Kobe was apart of everyone's life.
We lost a true legend today, may he and his family rest in peace.
I think JA Adande said it really well when he said that we saw Kobe go from being this young, fresh faced rookie to the grumpy old man in the last few years of his career and now we are all really realizing just how young he still was dying at just 41

RIP to an LA icon and his daughter. I grew out of watching sports like a year or two after Kobe came into the league, but being born and raised in LA, Kobe was always a King here. Dude was a mainstay for 20+ years. While I was a Disneyland pass holder, I saw the whole Bryant family together a few times over the years. The news was so so shocking.
I have been an absolute mess since I heard this news. Kobe was one of my basketball heroes. Was fortunate enough to meet him five years ago during his Retirement season. Got a picture with him and I cherish it and will continue to cherish it forever.
Madness is like gravity, all it takes is a little push!!!
