Bracketology: RIP Kobe Bryant

Bracketology by Jonathon Warriner

Updated January 27th, 2020

Before getting into the regular scheduled Bracketology, I first want to take a moment and remember Kobe Bryant, who was tragically killed in a helicopter crash yesterday. Kobe inspired a lot of what basketball is today. He was not only a stone-cold killer on the court. Personally, I was never the biggest Kobe Bryant fan, mostly because I really don’t like the Lakers but the amount of respect I have for his game is remarkable. This summer I remember watching some of his highlights on YouTube and I remembered just how great he was at the game basketball. This accident will hit harder for some, more than it will so for others but all of us will move on from this but without a doubt, the game of basketball lost an icon, a legend, and someone who will be remembered for decades to come.

Rest in Peace Kobe Bryant.
