Where were you at the time, both literally and at that stage in life? How did you react at the time?

Alone in my living room, screaming and crying all at once
It was late here in Brazil

One of the real emotional games as a Laker fan for me. Wasn't a good time in terms of the wins and losses, the whole Jimmy/Jeanie thing. That game, the intensity of it, and the special effort by Kobe, who was pretty much done as a big time scorer at that point of his career, it was an amazing one. The fact that Kobe's efforts led to a win, demonstrated what he was about. The competition in that game, it just showed if Kobe were still in his prime, he'd take that Laker team to the playoffs just like he did in the 2005-2007 era.

SEC 111 - Row 3!

I've never heard Staples Center that loud in person, except maybe Game 7 of the 2010 finals.

I also followed the team around on their road games that season. The amount of respect this man got was just as surreal. Enormous crowds at the hotels, bus tunnels (after the game), everywhere. At the ASG in Toronto, LeBron started walking to the bus, and everyone chanted KOBE at him

same perspective from a tv viewer - never seen Staples more jumping. that 4th quarter of Kobe's last game was probably louder than game 7. Is DaMuleRules still in the Lounge? I know he was at Game 7 - did you go to Kobe's last game? Which was louder?

also - huge shout out to the production crew. all the Kobe memories - it was such an incredible tribute. all the cuts to fans of all sorts, including very famous ones, absolutely losing their mind as Bean hit jumper after jumper in the 4th. incredible. i probably lost 3 pounds of water weight I just cried and screamed for 3.5 hours straight. i had a massive headache. i smoked so much weed. it was incredible, i was high after that game for a week straight, just floating through life.

Like MJ, Kobe was a worldwide sensation even before the onset of social media. The Laker brand and appeal only amplified his popularity. I read he was more popular than Yao in China, which is bonkers considering Yao was a household name over there. And it wasn't just China -- it was all the Euro countries (see Zubac talking about watching him), and all the Southeast Asian ones like the Philippines. People traveled from all other the world to watch him.

I still get chills watching this video:
