NBA Mourns Loss of Kobe Bryant

The NBA and Sports World is mourning the loss of Superstar Kobe Bryant. Bryant was killed in a Helicopter crash on Sunday along with his 13 year old daughter Gianna. Nine people in all were killed.

Bryant was the 4th leading scorer in NBA History, 5 time NBA Champion, 18 time NBA All Star and is the only player in NBA History to have 2 numbers retired by the same team.

But, aside from all his on the court achievements, I was thinking about his family, his 3 other daughters, who will have no Dad as they grow up. Listen, I was not a Kobe Bryant fan, in fact, I don't like the Lakers, but you can't deny what he accomplished on the court. Let's face it, if I started a team, Kobe Bryant would be on it.

But that means nothing, I feel bad that Kobe Bryant, the father, will not be around. I am forever a family man.
