Kobe Bryant Killed in Helicopter Crash

Recommended Posts


I tuned into 2nd half of the NFL Pro Bowl where they were talking about Bryant in the past tense, which didn't bode well.

I switched to watching the coverage on American TV, which is at Princess Diana levels.

Don't know how aware people are of him here, but this is on the magnitude of the likes of Messi or Ronaldo perishing suddenly.

BBC news on Sunday night apparently showing footage of LeBron James instead of Kobe during the report on his death.

FFS - isn't that a bit like showing Messi during a report on Ronaldo?

Aye, I didn't see the piece but I did catch the apology at the end of the news.

Not really! US basketball is hardly an item in Britain, whereas  football is never off our TV nor out of the press.. I personally had never heard of him until the news broke.

Aye but the researcher shouldve had a clue with the basketball vest with his name on the back

Still not as "bad" as the Jockey/Jackie Wilson mistake.
