We know people cry over movies so I don't know why this would be weird to you. People are wired like that. Perhaps it's empathy or sympathy. We're emotional creatures bro.

Kobe was one of the most well known people in America for two decades. He was always relevant, he was on your TV, in your newspaper, highlights and interviews and gossip all up in your Facebook feed. His name was on jerseys when you went anywhere. He was discussed in schools and breakrooms to fancy restaurants and boardrooms. He wasn't like a popstar that fades in and out with their album/tour cycle, his name was always there, even in retirement.

As I said another thread: he was in that position because he was special. And people took an unknown comfort in him constantly being there in the backgrounds of our consciousness, for decades. And then, suddenly, someone so special dying in a terrible way.... its like a light that's always been on our collective American consciousness just got unceremoniously flipped off.

Its sad and it's disturbing. Makes one reflect.
Yep. I don't know jack shyt about basketball either. Rarely ever played it when I was a kid, but I am familiar with Kobe, Jordan, Lebron and a few other players. That's about all though.

He also ran such a vicious smear campaign against his victim that it caused a change in Colorado laws about the privacy of sexual assault victims.

He was a rapist and you're a coward if you can't accept that.

You can accept he was a rapist and still be sad for his family, still be sad for everyone else lost in the crash, and still acknowledge any good he did in his life.
You got it a little mixed up.

My guess is you were too young back then.


He didnt pay her off til after she refused to testify.

The reason she refused to testify in the criminal case was because she didnt want to hurt her lawsuit.

She did so bad in a mock witness questioning with her own lawyers that they advised her not to cooperate and not to testify in the criminal case.

No one knows what really happened but those 2.

You can say kobe paying her off to go away is an admission of guilt.

I say that girl caring about her lawsuit more than getting justice in a criminal case says a lot more.

Often I think it reminds people of their own mortality, it subconsciously gives them tangible evidence that no one escapes the game alive, including the seemingly gifted or those who are marketed as invincible.

In that sense, people's tears for celebrity deaths are often for themselves and the inherent sadness of life.

Yes, good observation. As David Goggins says, let these people inspire you but don't put them on a pedastal, be your own hero. Living vicariously does nothing personally for anyone.

I always disregarded people mourning celebrity loss as a little ridiculous and over exaggerated. However I actually really felt quite saddened by the death of Chester Bennington, i'd grown up on Linkin Park and still listened to all of their albums on a fairly regular basis while gaming. I'd listen to at least one of their songs everyday, not religiously, more so because youtube just picks them on autoplay. However when I'd learned he died, the realisation he would never sing one of these songs ever again was quite shocking and all the pain he sang about over the years, finally claimed him. Even now, I still feel quite weird hearing their music and I suppose this is emphasized further by the kinds of songs they created anyway.

I'm a really happy, cliche, living my "best life" sort of dude. I'm not given to random moments of sadness, my brain seems to pump out a weird amount of serotonin or something. So for this to make me sad, I could begin to imagine how people who are in a more vulnerable mind state might feel.

As a side note,my music taste is really random and youtube can go from linkin park, to rhianna, to funkmaster flex to an opera singer called michael crawford. I just listen to music because I like it, not really because it provides any kind of meaning.

Enjoy the entertainment of it all but being too invested in other peoples sh^t slows you down if not outright stops your own forward mobility among other issues with being too into other peoples sh^t instead of your own.
I was a little bummed out when Ali died. It’s like the same thing if your teams in the Super Bowl loses. It hurts, but you wouldn’t cry. If you were on the team you would cry. I never knew Ali, so I didn’t cry.

It’s still fu#ked up how Kobe died. I’m more upset about his daughter really. Not a basketball fan though so I’m kinda whatever about it tbh.

You don't pay off someone that accuses you of rape, unless you are guilty. That **** tarnishes for life.

I'll always remember the time he chased an inflatable ball.

That day he bounced an inflatable ball.

And of course... I know you were all waiting for it... Who can forget the day he spun that inflatable ball on his fingertip?

Me and the relatives are all getting together tonight for a candlelight memorial. This man affected the culture & history of mankind in so many ways.

I totally understand why so many overweight basement losers are more deeply affected by his death than by their own mother's death. Very mentally healthy.
