I’m Not Ready but here I go. Man I sitting here trying to write something for this post but every time I try I begin crying again just thinking about you, niece Gigi and the friendship/bond/brotherhood we had! I literally just heard your voice Sunday morning before I left Philly to head back to LA. Didn’t think for one bit in a million years that would be the last conversation we’d have. WTF!! I’m heartbroken and devastated my brother!! πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ’”. Man I love you big bro. My heart goes to Vanessa and the kids. I promise you I’ll continue your legacy man! You mean so much to us all here especially #LakerNationπŸ’œπŸ’› and it’s my responsibility to put this shit on my back and keep it going!! Please give me the strength from the heavens above and watch over me! I got US here! There’s so much more I want to say but just can’t right now because I can’t get through it! Until we meet again my brother!! #Mamba4Life❤️πŸ™πŸΎ #Gigi4Life❤️πŸ™πŸΎ

These picture are just the tip of the iceberg of our relationship. He taught me so many things in life that were necessary on and off the court. On the court he taught me how to carve out defenses and how to take my time. How to make winning my ultimate goal. Off the court he taught me to sign my own checks lol. Of course anyone who knows my story knows I’ve suffered a lot of loss but the only loss I can compare this to is when I lost my son. Even though our relationship wasn’t father/son, it was more like him being a teacher and me being his brother. I’m glad I got to be the ying to your yang as far as the locker room was concerned. It was my pleasure. I couldn’t even catch my breath today when I heard this news. I just knew if he was in a helicopter crash he would have been the one to survive. Somehow he would have jumped out and landed on his feet. I’m sitting here thinking about when we would be in practice scrimmaging and you would start the jump ball off with elbowing Sasha in the chest. Like dude it’s 10:30 in the morning lol. You think watching him play was crazy, you gotta think in practice if you scored like 8-9 buckets throughout the practice you had a great practice. I’ve seen him knock off 13-14 in a row in practice!!!! I’m still waiting for the media to come out and say wrong report. No way God took my brother this early. I know I been through my own stuff in life with using drugs and not being good to myself. When I went through that Coma situation if God would have came to me and said we would take me and spare Kobe I would have rather that happened. In honor of my brother I’m up at 4am tomorrow to get to the gym! Gigi gone give you buckets!!!! I love you brother πŸ’”πŸ™πŸΏπŸ˜₯ @kobebryant

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver issued the following statement today regarding the passing of Kobe Bryant: “The NBA family is devastated by the tragic passing of Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna. “For 20 seasons, Kobe showed us what is possible when remarkable talent blends with an absolute devotion to winning. He was one of the most extraordinary players in the history of our game with accomplishments that are legendary: five NBA championships, an NBA MVP award, 18 NBA All-Star selections, and two Olympic gold medals. But he will be remembered most for inspiring people around the world to pick up a basketball and compete to the very best of their ability. He was generous with the wisdom he acquired and saw it as his mission to share it with future generations of players, taking special delight in passing down his love of the game to Gianna. “We send our heartfelt condolences to his wife, Vanessa, and their family, the Lakers organization and the entire sports world.”

The more and more and more i look at him post retirement, he didn't want to be here. He looked like his mission was accomplished. He had an eerie peace of a man who knew his time was coming to a close.

He loved all those girls. But him and Gigi were tighter than shoe laces. The love of basketball was their bond. In a morbid way, they are still together and that makes this blow a "tad" bit easier (not easy easy ...ya'll know what I'm trying to say).

To all families involved, rest in peace.

This was a ritualist sacrifice. He died on the same day as the Grammy's. Deaths surround the Grammy's like clockwork. His death was predicted in 3 different cartoons one of which is Simpsons that always gets it right. Lebron James surpassed his no.3 position of most NBA scores the day before. He died on the 26th, 26 days after Lebron James birthday. He was handing the torch to Lebron.

Little did he realize he was the bait. Probably figured he could rest now with his family since he passed on the torch. What part of blood sacrifice don't these people get? They are loyally devoted to these mystery occult belief systems but they never turn out right.

I was a fan as a kid and admired him greatly. Unfortunately he was a follower of Saturn/Lucifer, the light bringer. It was hard for me to come to terms with it. But most of the celebrities we look up to are servants of secret societies. You make a deal with the devil he will come to collect.

Still can't get over the reality of his death. I tear up when I think of those parent trying to comfort their kids while masking their own fear at what was coming. It's just tragic and we're not okay (Like A.I. said). Yeah we will be soon, but right now, it's a lot of people fucked up about this one.

Kobe was having the time of his life post retirement, being a father & husband. That's what makes this even more difficult to understand.

I hope your souls are at peace.
