The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Bryant, a Philadelphia native and Lower Merion High School product, was one of the great stars in NBA history.

In 2016, Bryant retired from the NBA, and in his final game he set yet another record for the organization.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.

  1. Awesome blog you have here but I was curious if you knew of any community forums that cover the same topics talked about in this article? I’d really like to be a part of online community where I can get responses from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Appreciate it!

  2. In the awesome scheme of things you receive an A for effort. Where you lost me personally ended up being on the details. As it is said, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn’t be more accurate right here. Having said that, permit me inform you just what exactly did work. The article (parts of it) is definitely extremely engaging and that is most likely the reason why I am making the effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, even though I can easily notice a jumps in reasoning you come up with, I am not necessarily sure of exactly how you seem to unite your points that help to make your conclusion. For right now I will yield to your position however trust in the future you connect your facts better.
