Kobe Bryant & Daughter Die in Tragic Helicopter Crash

Kobe Bryant dies at 41 in a helicopter crash that claimed the life of his 13 year-old daughter, Gianna Bryant and 7 other souls that were on board. A tragic ending for a man that had countless highlights on and off the court. Kobe and fellow passengers were on their way to basketball practice for the Mamba Academy, a youth basketball league that carried his nickname ‘Black Mamba’- that Kobe coached and his daughter played for. Kobe will forever live in the memories and hearts of his fans, his teammates, and his family- along with the superhuman legacy he has left behind. Our sincerest apologies and prayers go out to the Bryant family, the families who lost loved ones in this tragedy, and the Lakers organization.
