Christopher Goldman Ward, in an interview reported by Vanity Fair, talked about Kobe Bryant, who died with his daughter in a helicopter accident two years ago, bringing back parts of his book: My Kobe. The friend turned legend He said: "I was at home that January 26, 2020.
In the kitchen, having dinner with my family. It was a normal evening. I remember everything very clearly, smells, colors and moods, until that moment, at 20.25, when my phone began to go crazy with incoming messages. A friendship born as children, the one between Kobe and me, and which then lasted over the years and the distance.
The memory does not stop, it comes back strong, it is an emotion that becomes almost pleasant. From now on there will exist, for me and for many, a pre-Kobe life and a post-Kobe life. In the din and daze of those absurd days, I remember that the only balm for my soul was the recognition of the love the world felt for Kobe.
For my friend. Public and private utterances showed a great common reaction of deep sadness and disbelief. One of the secrets of the longevity of our friendship lies in the very fact that we did not see each other or hear from us regularly Who knew Kobe there or you know: he was a particular type, made his way.
It is said that he had no friends and in a sense it is true: I am convinced that Kobe Bryant, the Black Mamba, did not. Kobe from Reggio, on the other hand, had some. He had one, two, maybe three full cities."
