If I'm the NBA, I honor him at the all star game by letting all the players in the East wear 8 and the West wear 24.

Sounds like Kobe and his daughter, her teammate and parent, plus the pilot. So sad.

Parent is a juco baseball coach

RIP Kobe

 

Tragic day, not only because a beloved all time great passes away, but all those in the crash, especially sad for his young daughter...😔

Has to be the son or nephew of Joe Altobelli, right?

Hard to watch the interview with Doc Rivers...Ernie Johnson was just on CNN with Wolf Blitzer and was really torn up.

The last time I remember something so shocking was the announcement about Magic Johnson in the 90’s that changed the world in terms of AIDs/HIV awareness.

The LeBron interview from YESTERDAY is fucking creepy.. like he was reading a eulogy (and yes I know he passed him in all time points).

I don’t think John Altobelli is related to Joe. Seeing online John had a son JJ play for the Oregon Ducks years ago and his player profile didn’t mention Joe...which it probably would have if they were related. Hope JJ can take care of his surviving step sister. Such a tragedy.

The audio of the flight is out on youtube now. It's not too bad, as you don't hear it hit or anything, but man it's so f***ing weird. He asks for special tracking due to the weather, the person at control says that he's too low, it tells us the signal is lost and that's it. So eerie.

Just to clarify this point, as the media is wrongly clarifying what the pilot was said.

That relay is given many times a day - according to someone in ATC - and it's not a warning at all. It's merely being said to let them show they're not on radar, so they can't give you any additional information since they do not show up on radar. They are not telling the pilot he is flying too low; they are telling him he's too low to report/show up.

If I'm reading that radar right, they were waiting to go then maybe lost control?

Was hoping they didn't see it coming.

That's my thing. I keep thinking about the terror they were feeling, but hopefully the fog created no depth perception & they never even saw the mountain and it was instant.
