Honorary draft pick?


There is precedent, from when the NBA drafted Isaiah Austin in 2014.

WNBA plans to honor Gianna Bryant, fallen teammates at draft

In retirement, Bryant had become such a huge advocate for women’s hoops that when WNBA commissioner Cathy Engelbert began her job, she quickly heard from one former NBA player.


I'm glad to hear the WNBA is going to honor all 3 girls. The vast majority of news stories and commentary on this crash have completely ignored the fact that two of Gigi's teammates died as well.

One of Kobe Bryant's last Tweets before he passed away was to welcome former Duke star and WNBA All-Star Alana Beard to retirement “after an amazing career.”

“[The tweet] did something to me. It felt absolutely amazing. It put everything into perspective in terms of what I've done throughout my career,” Beard said the day after his death, her voice still raspy from crying.

Instead of tweeting him back, Beard had sent him a private message a few hours before the helicopter crash, telling him that she admired his approach to the game and life after basketball, particularly how he interacted with his daughters. And she thanked him.

“I only hope he understood the impact that he had on people around the world,” Beard said.

^You're just the person I wanted to see on the board. Tell me something Cam.

Will the families of the other victims have a case if they sue Kobe's estate for the accident? What will the case be dependent on as to whether Kobe was liable?

Understanding the Grey: Examining Kobe Bryant’s Complicated Legacy

So, what is the correct response? When is it too soon to speak about a man’s violent mistakes after his passing? How do you balance the legacy of a hero and a villain? When examining these issues, we must first look at our own biases and positioning.

Kobe and Gianna Bryant memorial service set for Feb. 24 at Staples Center

Quote:
A memorial service celebrating the lives of Lakers legend Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna will be held the morning of Feb. 24 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

There is significance in the date, which reflects the basketball jersey numbers worn by Kobe (No. 24) and Gianna (No. 2). Gianna Bryant's jersey was retired by Harbor Day School in Corona Del Mar, California, on Thursday.

Kobe Bryant, 13-year-old Gianna and seven others died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, on Jan. 26. They were headed to Mamba Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks for Gianna's team's game.


Quote:
The date for the memorial was finalized with planning and coordination from the City of Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Police Department and the LA Clippers, who have a 7:30 p.m. game at Staples that day against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Staples, which opened in 1999, has played host to other memorials, including for Michael Jackson and, last year, for rapper Nipsey Hussle. Bryant, who joined the NBA in 1996, played for the Lakers at the Forum for three seasons.

Susan Rice warns Snoop Dogg to 'back the **** off' attacks on CBS's Gayle King for Kobe Bryant interview

Quote:
“This is despicable,” she wrote. “Gayle King is one of the most principled, fair and tough journalists alive. Snoop, back the **** off. You come for @GayleKing, you come against an army. You will lose, and it won’t be pretty.”
