NBA All Star 2020: Remembering Kobe




by Ms. Black Hollywood

The NBA All-Star Game 2020 wasn’t just about who won this year, it was about who basketball fans worldwide lost.  Just weeks after the tragic death of legendary player Kobe Bryant, you knew the night would be dedicated to #24.

Jerseys representing both numbers 8 and 24 Kobe wore while in the NBA could be spotted peppered in the crowd of fans.  The number 9 was also on display–a silent tribute to the 9 people who died in the helicopter crash with Kobe on January 26.  Each squad wore patches on their jerseys with the number the MVP award

Dr. Dre produced an original song for his epic tribute that was edited to video spanning Kobe’s career to remind the crowd why the Black Mamba was lethal to opposing teams…

In a special pre-game ceremony, Magic Johnson asked for an eight-second moment of silence to honor Kobe saying, “We need to embrace each other at this tough time — Kobe would’ve wanted that“.

Jennifer Hudson moved fans to tears with her ballad “For All We Know” which she sang in front of a huge screen flashing photos of Kobe and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna who perished in the doomed flight with her dad…

It was a night to cherish memories…well, most of the memories. Before all the moving tributes to Kobe, fans were moved to tears by the first performance.

Ten-time Grammy winner Chaka Khan took center stage to sing the National Anthem.  Maybe the “I’m Every Woman” singer was still shaken after all the recent uproar over her being booted off the singing competition “The Mask Singer”  or maybe she was overcome with emotion over the loss of Kobe, but a lot of fans were not feeling the “I Feel For You” songstress…














But not everyone jumped on the slam Chaka train.  Some fans thought it was a performance worthy of the diva…

    If Lebron James and the Lakers win the NBA Championship, my suspicions that the NBA, Jeanie Buss (Lakers owner) and the government killed Kobe Bryant will increase. I don’t believe in coincidences, I believe in conspiracies.

    Did Kobe Bryant sell his soul? Consider the following information:

    1. His nickname was Black Mamba, a snake. The snake is the animal representation of the devil

    2. Kobe won five NBA Championships and a oscar; idol worship; violation of the first commandment

    3. Kobe’s workout regiment was the six six six exercise. Six hours a day, six days a week six months out of the year.

    4. He cheated on his wife; violation of the seventh commandment

    5. He snitched on Shaq; violation of the ninth commandment

    6. Kobe died January 26th. January is the first month. One plus two plus six equals nine. Nine times two, two represents Kobe and his daughter equals eighteen; six plus six plus six equals eighteen.

    7. There were nine people aboard the helicopter.
