Dec 24, 2021
I know how much Kobe meant to you. What do you think? It's going to be hard to

skip

, yeah, because it feels like a family member passed on to a very close family member because I think the thing is, over the last quarter century we've seen Kobe Bryant grow up before. I did it, we watched a seventeen-year-old boy make it to the NBA and become a champion become a husband become a father become one of the greatest players of all time in NBA history and then we see the end of his career and the transition to another phase of his life and it looks like he was about to take that as if he was attacking his NBA career and he was about to be as good in his second career as he was in his first career and this is when I got the

news

that i'm like nah this isn't someone because you know sometimes you get stuff like this someone is going through they like this can't be true so i'm hastening.

Kobe Bryant didn't need you to be a court hater to drop 50 on your head because his mentor the guy he had could more than anyone hung 55 on Michael Jordan they drove him into retirement that's the mindset every man possessed time he jumped onto the field. I had a chance to meet him at the icon award and that was probably what he was talking about I was like

kobe

you seem so at peace how many years ago this was about two years ago scary two years favorite in february two years he is like sharp im at peace he said because I didn't leave anything on th On the court I did everything I could to become the best player possible because of the way I trained, the way I ate, the way I practiced, the way I played, he said that now I only have a different approach, says I met the same approach in the same mindset that brought the NBA to the court.

i remember my grandma said she said son there's a quote you never I will be able to advise Kobe had a date and people like, well why didn't Kobe drive how many times did they call fly? he flew to practice every day he flew to the basic center of every home game all by helicopter oh i'm not sure there's a person in this country who flies a helicopter more than

kobe

in the last 25 years maybe one pilot did have this boy go to work go to print think about this gift this is how he went to practice this is how he went to work helicopter it was just his timing so sad i did it my heart breaks i mean mug like i said to watch him grow to see what he became where he came from and to see like i said make your week you're not supposed to cry you're not supposed to feel sa You're supposed to be happy he's in a better place and we say that we never guessed the question in the man above because he knows everything he says hello he looks low but the man today and i think now he is clever any penny that bothers you. i have with a friend of a single family member i think after what happened yesterday i think it's time to send all of that aside and say, you know what i have this cool little petty but what if that person left without saying sorry or we are better than that Coby barley we miss you we miss you Gigi we miss the various other members who also perished in that accident I skip this is a sad sad day I know you remember when Roberto Clemente perished at that delivery time Helpful would remember when they found out Hart crashed during his fort but he skips the range now than the NBA you've seen a bar you talk Cristiano Ronaldo you see the guy who touched this is unparalleled his legacy is great his legacy is now greater than basketball is about the people it's about the lives he touched why he played the game he loves so much basketball for all his points all the greats all the safeties when i woke up here in

miami

yesterday first thing What I did was call my wife Ernestine in Los Angeles is the first thing she said to me and it's so cloudy I can't see across the street.

I didn't think anything about it. I later found out that the Los Angeles Police Department grounded all of their helicopters all yesterday morning in Los Angeles. because it was too foggy to fly so a couple hours went by yesterday and i posted a picture on social media of a car that my friend little wayne is letting me use this week and i was proud of that picture in about a minute it went by and my The phone rang as I was walking back through the lobby of our hotel and it was Ernestine and I thought she saw the picture maybe she liked it she usually doesn't like any pictures of me and she was crying like I've never heard her cry in the 15 years that we have been together she could not even spit so she was crying and i was horrified because i thought something happened to her or someone at home and she finally made it out kobe died i said no no thats not possible and the details you said we re incomplete and i spent the next ten minutes trying to talk her off the ledge because i said they messed up it just can't be no kobe didn't die and then once gravity hit me i passed the s next half hour on Denial of your point because there's no way Kobe Kadam, right, he was too big to die, he was too big to die, if he gave me a list of ten thousand people yesterday morning and said one of these people are going to die today, I could have.
I put Kobe bean Bryant at the bottom of my list, he was too big and yet I spent the rest of the day, like maybe a lot of us, having to face my own mortality because you know he can go any of us can see yeah , it hit me right between the eyes one more time again to your point how fragile life is ho As fleeting as it may be, it's here today and tomorrow it will be gone and the ultimate cliché is that we weren't promised tomorrow, right? And the last other cliché is you have to live and love every moment, that's the ultimate truth of life and if there's any silver lining to this it made us all stop and say man am I doing this right and yet am I at your point again?
For me, it was getting so big that I had acquired online movie star status. all over the world and he let go of all the anger that got him as a player to where he was a beautiful person to look at and i always trusted him to

react

like the ambassador of the game kind of a basketball conscience and i waited for his tweet to put it all in perspective right So, for me, losing Kobe at 41 was like losing Michael Jackson at 50, or Prince at 57, or even if I can go back a little bit to Elvis's past at 42, but there was a world of difference. here, there was an element of self-destruction and all the falls of Michael Jackson Prince and Elvis some element of self-destruction and in this case this was straight up an unthinkable tragedy just a tragedy of an unexplained tragedy depending on how you view it spiritually how you said you have to deal to make peace with and whatever your outlook on life is, i have to, but i can't even comprehend or imagine the pain your wife is going through from losing a husband and daughter ha ha, right?
The kids called me so many times and he went to practice like he went to work. I'm sure they've taken this helicopter to games and practice as many times as she's ever thought of this in a million years. It was going to be the last time that she hugged and kissed her husband like you didn't know but and that only shows skill is that this pettiness that we put that we sometimes have the little nonsense that does get on my nerves in case and today I'm going to let it go, let it go, really preach it, but skip the coal and callousness he had on the court, the killer we applauded him for once, stepped aside, skip the, let, see, see a transformation into Coby in the last decade or so that he became a much softer person, he was less sheltered off the court scared when I met him at this iconic award in February of 2018.
Kobe Bryant had only seen me maybe a handful of times. times, but it made me feel like I knew. with me for 20 years and the way he talked to me was like, you know, I'm like and I'm looking at him and you mentioned that he was an evangelist from the biggest and brightest basketball game in Hollywood that they wanted to talk to he made him see the way that they looked at him as a kid kids look at him and michael jordan and lebron james that's how the celebrities on the a-list looked at kobe

bryant

that's what he became a 17 year old never seemed to care probably never been to california, yes, suddenly he was going to let go. the 405th on the team and making a name for himself becoming one of the greatest becoming a father a skeptical husband i mean and ended up being GG she looked like him she looked good i mean and seeing them sitting on the court at football games ball especially WNBA games and she asks him questions and he has his arm around her and says Randy man breaks your heart thanks for watching you can subscribe here to get the latest on the show and be sure to catch more of the best clips of
