Kobe Bryant's Quotes About Death Resurface, He Had 'Comfortable' Relationship with Death

Kobe Bryant‘s quotes about death, what he believes happens after death, and his relationship with death.

In an interview with The Ringer at the end of his career in 2016, Kobe was asked, “What’s your relationship with death?” He replied, “A comfortable one.”

He continued, “It’s a comfortable one. It’s an understanding. You can’t have life without death. Can’t have light without the dark. So it’s an acceptance of that. When it came time to decide whether or not I should retire, [it was] really an acceptance of that mortality that all athletes face. And if you combat it, you’ll always have that inner struggle within yourself. … So … I’m comfortable with it.”

He was then asked, “What do you think happens after you die?”

“I don’t know…I don’t know. But I’ll know when I die,” Kobe said in response. “To me, it’s that simple. I don’t know. We’ll see.”

Kobe and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna died in a helicopter accident on Sunday (January 26). We’ve learned the identities of three more individuals who passed away in the same accident.
