2019 seems like another world even though it’s only 3 years ago. So much of the world has changed. This was before The COVID pandemic and it’s aftermath. 2 Sports legends no longer here on Earth.

Two NBA legends. I’m not shocked Bill Russel is gone for he was almost 90. But Kobe was way to young to leave us so it seems.

The inspiration of Bill Russell that Kobe Bryant speaks of was undoubtedly paid forward in magnitude by Kobe himself, and both men’s legacies will be forever imprinted.
Heaven has received two incredible men

I definitely teared up a bit hearing the new today, but in admiration and joy cause Bill had a life worth living and he lived it, eery to have these two in a clip. Nonetheless, a rest well deserved for both. Bill had a lasting mark spanning generations, and Kobe? Unfortunately cut short, but we got the whole show, we just didnt get to see the behind the scenes, winning an emmy before his passing really showed us he had so much more beyond basketball.

Beyond Mind, Beyond body, but still within reach.
Both men along with Elgin already landed on the Rock of Eternity...

God bless, Bob Cousy. He's already 93 and still going strong.

What a great athlete! They should name the finals mvp trophy after him in honor of him
People don't realize how much this man did for basketball till you research. He was mr mvp. Won more rings than any pro athlete. Invented the nba finals mvp. Played against wilt, kareem, Oscar. For him to be around so long was amazing. Was always there to handoff the finals mvp every year. Basketball will never be the same. The end of an
