thanks for mho
It's not even about the money or being more or less important? It's a tragedy regardless. Kobe was a celebrity, inspired many, hundred of people knew him and had him as an example, inspiration naturally his death will get much more attention than any other non famous person.

I would argue he has done more for children and charity then you ever have. You can go into your immature hate speech of the guy and say he is just here to entertain us but you obviously haven't done your homework on the MAN he was. Kobe has raised over 42 million dollars for charity... worked tirelessly for (make a wish) foundation. Dude you need to get a grip. What the hell have you done?
This is hate speech? Google a bit coward, this isn’t hate speech. 42 million dollars is a drop in the bucket for a man like him who makes millions while a teacher in the Bronx makes a quarter of a quarter of a quarter of what he does, all while being a single parent and has to commute a long distance to better the children of a crappy neighborhood. You know what I’m talking about, don’t act fucking stupid in what my intentions are in writing what I wrote. I never said he was a bad man, I just said the distance of crying and care over this man’s death and all other “average” people is ions apart for what he actually does if you sit down and think about. I’ve given to the homeless and I’m dedicating my life to servicing the public as a police officer and soldier. But... if I die, not nearly the same amount of people will cry for me as they do Kobe Bryant, even though I probably have more in common with them than Kobe Bryant ever will...
"He makes millions and wouldn’t cry over an “average” or “mundane” persons death."That isn't someone hating? That isn't HATE? How the FUCK do you know he wouldn't cry over an average person's death? You little punk! How dare you speak the way you do in this society. It's fucking shameful.
You know what I meant by that, either way that isn't hate speech. You know better than to throw around that millennial/post modernist term haphazardly
You can make an argument without the hate. Kobe did great things for children and many charities... doesn't mean I don't feel the same about a soldier who risks his or her life on the battlefield and for you to even suggest that people who are sad about kobe's death aren't sad about the men and women of our armed forces is fucking ignorant and immature on your part... and frankly is disappointing to see.
I looked up to Kobe Bryant when I was younger and still liked basketball. He was my favorite player and loved playing as him all time during video games. The LA Lakers was my favorite team ever. I’m sure he was a great and honorable man. Honestly I’m a little more devastated by the death of his daughter aboard with him too. Also Coach, the people on board who died aren’t even talked about or mentioned!! Anyways, I might’ve been too passionate about my response so I apologize, but deep down in your mind I know you know what I’m trying to get at. KB was not a bad man and he should be mourned.
It wasn't passion.. it was hate. So I mourn Kobe Bryan'ts death so that means I don't care about the teacher who works 50 hours a week and has to commute long distance? Who the fuck are you to assume that I or anyone else doesn't feel just as "passionate" as you do about these kinds of people? You would wager that the job she does is vastly more important? And we don't? Kobe has done and give his time and money to great things.. it's not his fault he was so called "glorified" by the magical tube called television. Many people are... is that there fault now too? You need to THINK before you type.
You’re so wrong on this lmao. I’ve already told you what I mean and I even wrote a post about it so you can check that out. Look at @OldAndWiser said. Pretty much nailed it and everyone on there was on the same page as me. Again, not hate, passion yes, not hate at all.
STOP BEING FUCKING SHEEP PEOPLE... STOP IDOLIZING HUMAN BEINGS THAT DO AN UNIMPORTANT THING IN SOCIETY, BUT JUST BECAUSE THEYRE ON TV, THEY GET SOME GOD COMPLEX ATTACHED...You have hate in your heart son. That is not passion. I don't give a shit what @OlderAndWiser has said or not said. You need to think before you talk. Because if you don't you get... ME.
That’s not hate on Kobe Bryant just sheep thinking in general that people seem to exhibit old timer. If you don’t see the sense in what I wrote then it looks like your old age hasn’t blessed you with wisdom then coward.
You have no clue what you are talking about. Saying I am an "old timer" doesn't change that.
I can say the same about you saying “punk” “son” and “hate” to refer to me...
You could and it would be true but at least I would admit it.
Well, this convo sure turned out pleasant lol.
No biggies though, people argue and disagree that’s fine. We can all still be friends and work perfectly together despite arguments. Have a good night or day, wherever you are.
That is true. no hard feelings!
Always works out that way.
Exactly. I also thought about that.
Gianna died in the copter with him :(
@DizzyDesii How do you know? They haven't named anyone else in the crash
@DorkVader its being posted on the news now
I see it on espn. com. Damn shame. They said he was on the way to coach a girls game today
@DorkVader yea the daughter that died was mini mamba. She played ball like him
@DizzyDesii Sad, i was going by the news at the time that saidnone of his family was on board.
* when anyone dies
So is it karma for his daughter to die in the crash as well? I'm not saying you're wrong and you're definitely entitled to your opinion, but a better use of Karma would be him having 4 daughters and looking into their faces each day and realize just what a shit human he was for doing what he did.
@DorkVader Sorry, didn't know one if his daughter's died in the crash.. she didn't deserve that. My sympathies for her and to her mother. But, I'm sorry, I can't/ don't have much sympathy for another star that thought they were alive the law, or could do whatthat want, just cuz they have money and fame. That wasn't enough? Never is🤷♀️
It was an allegation. Aka you can't say he did it, but you're acting like you can. That's disgusting. Especially considering the man's death. I almost hope you have sons go through a woman lying about things they did just so you can have that sink in. Because at 47 you should know better.
@rjroy3 If it was just allegation why did he apologize? And pay her off?
Excerpt from his longer apology letter:"I also want to make it clear that I do not question the motives of this young woman. No money has been paid to this woman. She has agreed that this statement will not be used against me in the civil case. Although I truly believe this encounter between us was consensual, I recognize now that she did not and does not view this incident the same way I did. After months of reviewing discovery, listening to her attorney, and even her testimony in person, I now understand how she feels that she did not consent to this encounter."He was apologizing for the shit storm that came from all of this. Because he is aware that a girl in her position going after a very popular celebrity can't have been great for her. Likely many supporters, some potentially crazy went after her and her family in one way or another. Because there are always crazy people who will.Take it for what you will. But he didn't pay anyone off. He stated he didn't question her intentions, but that he can see why perhaps she felt it wasn't consensual while he vehemently disagreed. They settled out of court.But again... alleged. You're speculating. You don't know. But you're using his death to spit on his grave. That's simply disgusting behavior.
He never apologized for his actions. But for the situation. Something a man of character might do.
"Criminals" are people too
You don't have any idea if he was guilty or innocent, you weren't there. You don't know him and you don't know her either, so don't make an ass of yourself.
@Bananaman177 And neither do you. But I know he first denied even having sex at all 3 times till he knew there was physical evidence. So why would he do that I also know that he admitted to having more than one extramarital affair. I didn't say he deserved to die, I said I can't have much sympathy. I totally sympathize with his wife who not only lost her husband, she lost her child, and no woman/ parent should have to go through that I also sympathize with the families of the other victims that barely have gotten mention cuz they weren't famous. www.thedailybeast.com/kobe-bryants-disturbing-rape-case-the-dna-evidence-the-accusers-story-and-the-half-confession
I don't need to know what happened, I'm not the one acting like I do. Dumb-dumb.As for that woman, why did she go up to his room in the first place? Explain to me what she thought she was doing.
@Bananaman177 Your're entitled to the way you feel. As am I. Difference of opinion/ views don't need to come to name calling. Call me what you want. I don't have to stop to that level. But so, a hotel employee going to a guest's room means she went for sex? Ok🤷♀️ again tho we are allentitled to feel what we feel.
She was a prostitute, not a hotel worker. That's why they found sperm from several dozen different men in her vagina. You'd better forget about your "feelings" and go look up the facts again. She was trying to shake a millionaire sports star down for money so he paid her off because it was cheaper than letting her keep dragging his name through the mud in courts and in the ensuing media circus. But women like you always think an accusation is the same thing as a conviction, and it's sickening.
@Bananaman177 You are the one distorting facts not me. Why you wouldn't read the link I sent. But hey, I'm not going to argue any more than I'm going to take your insults. People that have to resort to that, I don't deal with. But you should recheck your facts, before you accuse someone else. Have a good day, sir.
With all due respect. You really have no idea what you're talking about and you're treating your gut feeling like fact, when it simply isn't. Do the conspiracy theory play all you want. But it doesn't change you're spitting on the grave of a man on the basis of nothing...
@rjroy3 You know what? Where's ther mention of the " other" victims? So, their deaths are less important?I'm not spitting on anyone's grave. I just don't feel one person's life or death should be more important than someone else's based on fame and money. You are entitled to the way you feel. So am I. And let's respectfully leave it at that. Thanks and have a great day.
Mentions came out the next day, because you know. It was a fire and bodies had to be identified...You're grasping at straws. You know exactly what you did. If it was about feeling as if his life wasn't more important, then you would have made it the focus of your first post.Just stop. You're not salvaging this.
If you get bored. Feel free to look up the YouTube video of the girl rapping. Acting like some crazy chick. Realistically Kobe most likely was just fucking around a little too loosely and he got caught up in fucking a crazy girl.
How much was said about her daughter's team mate and her dad who coached girls sports? No, it was all Kobe and his daughter. The richest and most famous are the only ones they talk about.
Can you name 5 people who died yesterday who performs vital services on people?
Before I get a stupid response that I’m not going to see for the next 6 months when I log back on, the point being is that no one has seen said persons on tv or personally nearly every other night for literally over 2 decades, while they’ve seen Kobe play, interviewed, etc. No one is less upset over them, but people don’t feel bad when they don’t know that person existed. You didn’t cry over the 37 stillborns that died last night, who you don’t know their names, but you’ll feel sad when you discover your favourite artist/singer is dead...
@Other_Tommy_Wiseau Ohhh sure, so it's nothing to do with their contribution to society, just how many times they've been seen on TV?
thats exactly why i alikened it to the death of colin mccrae
