Kyle & Gary discuss the tragedy that unfolded in California on Sunday when Kobe Bryant, Gigi Bryant, the Altobelli family (John, Keri, Alyssa), Christina Mauser, Sarah Chester and her daughter Payton, and Ara Zobayan all perished in a helicopter crash on the way to the game. We discuss Kobe’s legacy and greatness and Gigi’s promising basketball life cut short.
Next, we discussed how major stories like this are handled on social media, first vs. right, new media vs. old media, TMZ reporting the news before the next of kin was alerted, and morality of what to post.
This was an unfortunate podcast we had to do that we never thought we’d have to do. This was someone we grew up with our whole life, the first generational talent of the Internet age, and someone who had the competitive fire we should all strive for.
