THE FRENCH FRYER with Steve French

REMEMBERING MAMBA
French Fryer

     There's alot of thoughts today about Kobe Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash Sunday at the age 41.  First of all, for me, I think not of Bryant first, though it's tragic.  I think about his daughter and her friend, who were both just starting to live at age 13.  Bryant's work ethic was unmatched, save for MJ and maybe Lebron.  He was really good, and willed himself to all-time greatness.  In 1996, Bryant was the first guard drafted out of high school.  He was not a #1 pick, he was #13, by Charlotte, one slot AFTER the Cavs took Vitaly Potapenko.  And then was traded to the Lakers for Vlade Divac!  Mamba played all 20 years in LA, and was an All-Star 18 times.  It's been announced he'll be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in September.  Let us today honor Kobe Beane Bryant, one of a kind.
