    One of the greatest NBA basketball players to have ever lived, Kobe Bryant along with four others were killed this morning in a helicopter crash in Calabasas California. There's not too many details out at this point, although the Federal Aviation Administration is saying the helicopter went down under "unknown circumstances". They have not confirmed the identities of the other four passengers on board just yet.

    This is crazy sad news.. Hopefully they can at least figure out exactly what happened soon.

    ** Reports are now saying Kobe's 13-year-old daughter, Gianna Bryant was one of the passengers on the flight.

    Shocking news. Easily one of if not the best NBA player ever. Top 3 for me. Enormous legacy he leaves behind; he was even an Oscar winner (2018). Only 41.

    When I first saw this reported I thought it had to be a hoax, but sadly it isn't.

    If it weren't bad enough, his daughter was on board the helicopter too. I can't even begin to imagine what his wife is going through right now. It's so sad.
