Such memories of him going up against the Kings for de facto NBA titles in the early 2000s. RIP.

One of the few who deserved to be mentioned in the same breath as Jordan.

Victim refused to testify at the last minute, settled for couple of million and an apology/semi confession iirc.

Accuser/victim wouldn't testify in the criminal case but received an apology and a large compensation package in the civil trial. Wonder how it would have panned out today.

It would at least have a hashtag as well.

But forgot about that. It was never really shown to weigh one way or another in that case from what I recall. maybe someone else knows more details.

Bryant was a massively complicated person, to say the least.

This is a great write up about him following his retirement.

Absolutely awful. Most shocking of these I’ve experienced.

Throws the league up in the air, not one of these guys who didn’t idolise him. Just awful.

Not really. Nuggets playing Rockets right now, no mention of it.

I started college in Colorado not too long after that happened and had friends who were from the Eagle-Vail area. The consensus among them seemed to be that he didn't rape her. Obviously that doesn't mean he didn't but given the outcome of everything, I tend to believe it.

Not sure why but I'm quite shocked by this. Such a massive star.

Sad his daughter died as well.

Reports are that another player (and their daughter) was on board, but it doesn't appear to be Fox as multiple sources have said it's not and he apparently has been active on social media post crash.

It sounds like he was on the way to his daughter's basketball game and her teammate and her teammate's dad were the other passengers on board. I guess the other dad could have been a former player too.

Everyone except passionate Laker fans thinks he bought her off. The whole deal in Colorado never occurred in southern California.

It was most likely a deal of they agreed to sex but not a certain sexual act.

Raptors & Spurs both started the game with intentional shot clock (eg 24 second) violations as a tribute.

Yes, an extremely fit 40 year old with no known health problems or mental illnesses would have been the top of everyone's list.

thats why dead pools are fun, it can be ANYONE and not just the old farts that refuse to die, pretty sure someone would have had terry jones or john cleese for this year, 2 famous deaths already and its just the first month..no one expected 2 healthy retired Rugby payers to die in 2019 now did they?

Hmm. Considering he never leaves his room like the sad keyboard warrior he is, you're somewhat limited in the options for possible death. Maybe infected bed sores, or the effects of morbid obesity?

The used the wrong guy in the initial report

MSNBC anchor topped that however
