I was shocked and heartbroken to hear that Kobe Bryant died today. I wasn’t a fan of his or the Lakers but I love basketball and I greatly appreciate what he did for the sport, even his 81-point godly performance against my hometeam, the Raptors. I’m inspired by his work ethic and the Mamba mentality that he so eloquently portrayed. Sure, he wasn’t perfect but no one is and I, for one, am only focused on the positive and motivating force that he exuded as one of the kings of my favourite sport.
What saddens me most is the loss of his 13-year-old daughter and the thought of what his surviving wife and children must be going through. I don’t care how much fame and money you have, the grief and pain of losing a life partner and a child is shared by everyone. The potential futures, new experiences, family milestones… all lost in an instant.
But what is never lost are the memories and legacy that he leaves behind. RIP, Kobe, Gianna, and the others lost in this tragedy.
