29th January, 2020
It was was surely a black Sunday for sports lovers allover the world on the 26th January, 2020 as the death of basketball genius gradually filtered through the air-waves and brought tears to the eyes of millions of people across the globe.
Kobe was not just a star basketball player in the NBA but a very special one who distinguished himself in so many ways all over the world.
Below is how CNN described him;
He was the rare celebrity who didn’t need a last name. Oprah. LeBron. Beyonce. Kobe. Everyone knew who you were talking about.
Still youthful at 41, Bryant — who died in a helicopter crash Sunday in California — looked like he could suit up and drop 30 points on a rival NBA team. It doesn’t seem that long ago that he was scoring 60 points in his final NBA game, soaking up the cheers of Los Angeles Lakers fans who worshiped him for two decades as one of the city’s favorite sons.
After his 20-year NBA career — all with the Lakers — Bryant is all but assured of being a first-ballot inductee into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame later this year.
“He was a fierce competitor, one of the greats of the game and a creative force,” said fellow NBA icon Michael Jordan.
Kobe was friends with a whole lot of stars in other sports among whom is Neymar Jnr. We are happy to present to you in this post, a short video clip of both stars as they enjoyed each other’s company in a sporting manner sometime back.
Uneekomunikations wishes Kobe Bryant’s spirit a good rest in peace with the faithfully departed souls.
