“It’s the one thing you can control. You are responsible for how people remember you—or don’t. So don’t take it lightly.” – Kobe Bryant

The Mamba Mentality became a mantra for an entire generation of kids because of him. #RIPKobeBryant

As we grieve the loss of Kobe, I’m reminded of a song lyric: Never leave “I love you” left unsaid.

RIP Kobe Bryant.

Gut-wrenching. There are no words right now. Thoughts and prayers go out to Vanessa Bryant and his four young daughters.

The entire world is mourning the death of an icon.

Whenever I shoot and yell Kobe I’m gonna have a tear in my eye

“My brain . . . it cannot process failure. It will not process failure. Because if I sit there and have to face myself and tell myself, ‘You’re a failure’ . . . I think that’s almost worse than death.” — Kobe Bryant, basketball legend, RIP

— Marc Andreessen (@pmarca) January 26, 2020

Bryant has an amazing basketball legacy, but even with his excellence, number 24 was a gracious star. He even congratulated LeBron James who just the other day beat his record career score tally.

Continuing to move the game forward @KingJames. Much respect my brother 💪🏾 #33644

— Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) January 26, 2020

This gracious congratulatory message to #KingJames would be Bryant’s last tweet made only hours before that last, fateful helicopter ride.

The 41-year-old NBA legend is survived by his wife of 18 years, Vanessa, and three daughters, Natalia, Bianca, and Capri, the latter of whom is only a few months old. Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, was also killed in the crash.
