I am NBA follower of 10+ years, was 1st sport I could turn a profit on so its close to my heart. Shocking news that Kobe Bryant has died in a helicopter crash. Only LeBron James was more high profile in that period. RIP to Kobe and all others on board.

I know NBA is not massive in UK but to use footage of LeBron James when bringing their viewers the news shows again how BBC News has gone to the dogs. Absolute clowns.

Yea, that's not a good look. Probably not deliberate though.

Only sports.. but still.

I don't know. Faux outrage for me.

Lebron was part of the news cycle surrounding it, given that he'd just overtaken Kobe on the alltime scorers list. If your news team doesn't have anyone with basketball interest on staff/on call, you need to make a short piece right now on something breaking, and all your info is that he was a legend playing his entire career for the Lakers, then seeing this clip from Lebron surpassing Kobe doing the rounds in the US, it's completely anhonest and somewhat understandable mistake.

That's terrible, especially given the circumstances.

I'm not really an NBA person, have modelled it but don't know much about its key players but even I could get that right.

At least they did use a picture of Laurence Fishburne.

So the NBA is back tonight, in the bubble and sans fans. Love this sport and trading this sport so eager to see how it goes.
