I'm pretty bummed about that. I'm not a Lakers fan, nor was I ever really a Kobe fan. That's a serious bummer.

Sad day. One of my earliest sports memories were him and Shaq winning 3 straight. And after retiring, I loved how involved he was in the basketball community...trying to improve and teach the game he loved. It seemed like he was just getting started.

Same. I was picking up groceries at Giant and word spread like crazy. First couple of sites I checked had nothing. His Wikipedia page had been edited to show his death date as today then very shortly thereafter edited to take that away.

One of the greats. Reports also indicate he was flying to his academy with daughter Gigi. Horrible tragedy.

I've heard a couple talking heads on TV bring this up right after the news broke so...should the NBA have considered postponing games scheduled for today in the wake of this news?

I don't know about that, but I do think it would be a nice tribute to retire his number 24 across the entire NBA.
