Even I was shocked and overwhelmed by this tragic news and I don’t even know the sport of basketball that well. I wonder how many basketball players who have Kobe Bryant as their idol will be discouraged by his sudden death. I believe everything happens for a reason, though. Maybe God needed a basketball in heaven, who knows? We will not forget you, Kobe. We will remember you for all the good things you left behind for us. Thank you for your amazing basketball games. Thank you for showing us the Mamba Mentality. Thank you, Kobe Bryant, for everything you have done for us. Mamba out.
