  • Growing up a Jordan fan, I wanted to be like Mike. So when Kobe stepped on to the scene as a 17 year old, I kinda see myself in him a little bit. Seeing Kobe idolize MJ and patent his game after him, I related to that. It has been a treat to watch him over the years stepping to his own and becoming the legend that he is. As a basketball fan, it broke my heart. I never thought it would affect me the way that it did.

  • Zion's too young to really remember Kobe. He was 9 years old back in 2010 when Kobe won his last championship and only saw his decline after that. The ones who really knew him are the players in their 20s and 30s.

  • Im a little torn between cancelling games yesterday because it seems like the right thing to do. However i ask myself is that what Kobe would have wanted. Overall im happy that they kept the games going. Kobe was a basketball junkie and would have wanted that.
