RIP Kobe Bryant

The death of some people looms large because through their extraordinary deeds they’ve been able to touch an unusually high number of people. As a basketball fan I’ve been watching Kobe Bryant from afar, mesmorized by his talent and relentless work ethic.

It must have been just one week ago when I watched Matt Barnes’ and Stephen Jackson’s interview with him. After Kobe finished his active NBA career he seemd to have made such a smooth transition into new areas where he could channel is incredible determination to seek excellence, e.g. movie making. 

Tomorrow is never promised.
