As Sports Stars Responded To The Death Of Kobi Briant
2020 continues to surprise bad news: fires in australia, united states conflict with iran, new flare virus. Against this, the news of the death of one person should not affect, but the death of the legend «los angeles lakers» kobi briant did not leave anyone indifferent.
Kobe was a friend not only for basketball
Each sport has its own icons that become peculiar symbols of whole eras. So, if we talk about football, everyone immediately remembers pele, maradona, lion yashin and, of course, messi with ronaldo. In a conversation about mma, it will be emelyanenko (in the cis), mcgregor and from recently habib. In «formula 1» this is michael schumacher and airton senna. As for the nba, the names of michael jordan immediately arise in the head, shaquil about’neal and kobe brian.
Interestingly, when people become icons, most often it turns out that they are not limited in their love for sports only by their native. So, kobi was well a sign of football fans (sick for «milan»), ufc (communicated with fighters and dana white), riders «formula 1» and t. D. Therefore, the loss felt all.
