Unfortunately I think it is true. All news agencies are reporting it

Stunned.

I suppose it was simply his time to meet the Lord, but absolutely stunning. All the condolences to his wife and the children he left behind.

It is. They were talking about it during the Pro Bowl. RIP, Kobe.

A sad day for the NBA. Prayers to all the families and friends of Kobe and the others who were with him.

This one is personally devastating. This is the most heartbroken I've ever felt by an athlete's death. Kobe was one of my absolute favorite players of the 00s and in my opinion is the best NBA player of the 21st century. Kobe's 18 all star selections are 2nd only to Kareen's 19 and he won MVP in 2008. And of course 5 rings and 2 finals MVPs speaks for itself. Kobe, now posthumously, will headline this year's strong Hall of Fame class.

41 is way too young to die. This is one of those who was taken from us way too soon. RIP to Kobe Bryant.

Thoughts are with Kobe's family, teammates, and the NBA community at this tragic time. The worst part is that he had children who are still kids who have lost their father. Very tragic all around.
Adjustments that should be made to pricing games to make them fairer: Secret X: Add a 3rd SP so that perfect pricing ensures a win. 1/2 Off: Add a 4th set of SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Master Key: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Rat Race: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win.

The following pricing games should be retired because there's no way or no easy way to make them fair: Spelling Bee, Plinko, Punch a Bunch, Pass the Buck, Let em Roll.

The following retired pricing games should be revived: $uper $aver, Give or Keep, Buy or Sell, Hurdles, Bump, Penny Ante, Credit Card, On the Spot, Split Decision, Add em Up, Walk of Fame, Barker's Markers.

Now it's been reported that Kobe's daughter Gianna (or Gigi) was also aboard the helicopter. :(

Devastated.

Iím not even a Lakers/Bryant fan and it feels like I lost a family member.

Needless to say, this is not a good time to be an NBA fan, with the loss of former Commissioner David Stern.

Even though I prefer LeBron James over Kobe Bryant, there's no denying that Kobe was the most talented player of his generation, with his five championships, multiple MVP awards and many memorable games, such as the 81-point effort against Toronto.

(I hope LeBron dedicates the next Lakers championship to Kobe's memory, because it would be a very fitting ending to this season.)

R.I.P. Kobe and Gianna "Gigi" Bryant
