    dw the Sixers fan base in Australia grew 99.5% since Simmons. People find it hard to believe I've been a fan before lol

    This news made me sick when I found out, I felt my organs shiver. I had very low reception where I was when I found out but the News app side widget on the iphone was somehow working which is how I found out. The whole world is mourning which shows he was bigger than basketball. RIP Kobe.

    “Kobe’s wife is human” is pretty much the gist of this. What a dumb thing to write and publish.

    the article itself is putrid.

    “Vanessa has three surviving daughters with Kobe: Natalia, 17, Bianka, 3, and Capri, 7 months.”

    How tone deaf do you have to be to write this s---? Not even an ounce of consideration.

    I really, really wish people would just ignore anybody who brings up the r--- allegations to s--- on a dead man, a father and a husband. When will you learn this is being done solely for attention and nothing more? Starve the attention hungry little maggots and watch them wither away. It’s really that simple.

    nah. Like I said earlier, you can’t talk about legacies & only nitpick the good. You have to talk about his whole character & that includes the r--- allegations. People are complex beings. There are no purely bad people & purely good people—it’s all on a spectrum. We have to reflect that when discussing public figures legacies & impact on people.

    I understand needing to discuss the good and bad about someone when talking about their character or perhaps even their life. But I don’t feel it’s necessary to bring up someone’s worst moments right after they die.

    Crazy. Also shout out to my high schools banner on the wall lol. Nuts to think Kobe played against my high school for four years actually.

    Not really. You used the word allegations.. he wasn't found guilty. Dont think it needs to be discussed. No one made you in charge of how we discuss people's legacies.

    I still miss Kobe a lot. r.i.p

    somewhat related note wtf happened to the Kobe posts in the nba thread for his last game? I went back to revisit and they’re all gone lol, I know myself and others posted a lot bout the game around that time. Were they moved to a different thread or something?
