The shocking news that Kobe Bryant went into a helicopter crash together with his daughter. A tragic death for one of the best ever to play the game of basketball. A day after LeBron James passes him in all-time records on points scores.
Kobe Bryant the Spur’s biggest rival in basketball since I have started to watch it in 2001. They went toe to toe every series they had. It’s Spurs or Lakers in the next five titles from 1999 to 2003. It’s always Kobe Bryant who made the Spurs life hard. Even San Antonio had a perennial All-Defensive Bruce Bowen. Kobe was huge in 2004 loss and MVP in 2008. Both year’s they went to finals that best the Spurs.
Weeks ago Kobe said they could definitely win ten in a row if not for Tim Duncan’s San Antonio. Which they can really do it if Duncan isn’t there. This is nothing but a lot of respect for the San Antonio Spurs organization. Kobe never talk trash it insulted the Spurs just played basketball. We heard a lot of praise from Kobe in San Antonio. He’s the biggest rival of Tim Duncan to his legacy which Tim didn’t care.
We pray in his game before that the Spurs always victorious. But how can you hate this guy who loves us? Kobe’s an amazing person who symbolizes competitiveness. Never back down any challenges in life. He did amazing things on his own with the Los Angeles Lakers. After Shaquille O’Neal exit in 2005, Kobe helps the team to reach the playoffs in 2006. Gives a hell of a run against the Phoenix Suns with a 3-1 lead until Suns figure it out to win in seven games. With Kobe, he put the Lakers again back in the contention. After defeated by the Boston Celtics in 2008, they went to win back to back in 2009 and 2010.
Kobe, you give us a headache when playing day yet over. But our deepest sympathy to your family. The legacy that you put in the name of the game. We always love you Kobe, one of the greatest.
