Kobe Bryant & Daughter Gianna Bryant Dead In Helicopter Crash
NBA star Kobe Bryant, 41, and his daughter, Gianna Bryant, 13, died Sunday morning in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California. The Bryants were among five people who died in the crash. There were no survivors. The group was en route to a basketball game.
Local police have not given a reason for the crash.
The retired Los Angeles Laker’s death comes just a day after he was passed by LeBron James for third place in the NBA record book for all-time scoring. On Saturday night, Bryant tweeted his congratulations to James.
The 6’6” forward entered the NBA straight out of high school. At the time, he was the youngest NBA player ever in 1996.
In 2004, he was accused by a woman of rape, but the charges were later dropped when the woman refused to testify.
