‘Oh no! Kobe Bryant,’ says man who had no idea who he was


A fair few people have had to sneakily google Kobe Bryant’s name this morning to find out who he was.

Local Facebook user, Peter Thape noticed the RIP’s pinging in last night, and had to look up Bryant’s name, so that he could effectively join in with the grief tourism.  

Thape is now better prepared for today’s inevitable Bryant conversations.

‘What a legend he was; 5 NBA championships,’ said Thape.

‘And a great father, too,’ he added.
