Hope he wasn't driving it.

CNN addressing this. Said he had a pilot normally, but who knows? Maybe he was driving it.

My heart goes out to Vanessa. This is the worst. Puts everything in persepective.

RIP Kobe. He seemed like a very good guy. Hobe played high school ball at Lower Merion which was down the street from my prep school. He was born and bred to play basketball. Dad, Joe "Jellybean" Bryant played for Lasalle and was a first round draftee of the then- San Diego Clippers before being traded to the Sixers, while his mother is the sister of Chubby Cox who played for Nova and then a powerhouse San Francisco Dons team in the mid-70s.
