January 26, 2020, The words “Legends never die” swept through WeChat like a tornado. I opened Google news with trepidation. The first link that popped on the page was “Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter died in a helicopter crash.” I was shocked and I felt like someone punched my chest as if the person wanted to kill me. There is no basketball player who doesn’t know Kobe Bryant, even I, who don’t play basketball somehow know him. Kobe Bryant was an American professional basketball player. A shooting guard, Bryant played his entire 20-season career in the National Basketball Association with the Los Angeles Lakers. A happy and perfect family is shattered like glass, and the youth of basketball fans around the world is lost at the moment when the helicopter crashed on the merciless mountain. In 2008, wenchuan earthquake, when all people are immersed in the grief of losing their loved ones, the United States from the other side of the earth lend a helping hand. Bryant has donated more than $5 million to support the victims of the earthquake and has traveled to sichuan in person to comfort those devastated spirits by the disaster. People always say God will take the people he wants, maybe he needs a basketball legend and a kind and brave heart. Kobe Bryant is gone now, but the mamba spirit lives on forever! May you go well, the unyielding Philadelphia boy!
