Not at all UVA related but if you haven’t heard yet NBA legend Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash less than an hour ago. So sad to see a legend go. Everyone (including myself) is in complete shock. He never had anything to do with UVA (that I know of… correct me if I’m wrong) but I just wanted to put it out there. RIP
Just saw this on the news. What a shocker. I always feel for the family that’s left behind when something like this happens.
So sad for all of us basketball fans to hear. Kobe did have one Uva connection however non basketball related. RIP and full support for his girls
What was his connection?
His daughter, 13, also passed away.
I wanna be 100% sure to get it right and also wait until we know everything
I was always an anti Kobe Guy during his career…But I honestly hate to see this. Leaves an empty feeling in my gut. He was only half way done with life. So sorry to hear this.
This is so terrible. It makes me sick on my stomach. I cant imagine what the family is going through. Prayers for all touched by this tragedy
I can only name one player there. Number 33. Kobe the mamba bryant
Number 15 is Uva’s Willie Dersch
Nate James. Stephen Jackson. Kobe. Tim Thomas. Jermaine O’Neil. Ed Cota. Shaheen Halloway. Vasil Evtimov. Rip Hamilton.
So I wanted to be respectful and I know everyone here is as well. Kobes UVa “connection” is Jerrod Washington who played football during my time and was a great running back and friend. Jerrod married Kobes sister so lets all think about J and his family as well.
He posted that on FB so please keep it here at LRA
He’s an underrated running back in UVA history. His senior year he was great and was a hell of a kick returner. #22
DurtyNellys knows. And cool cool guy.
Can we talk Larry Holmes???
Larry was #20. Fast as shit and used to take that inside screen to the house. St Alban’s alum?
Yessir. one of the toughest players ever. maybe 5-10 and returned kick offs as a true freshman. And he could hoop. We used to battle for real at Slaughter back in the day
