Kobe Bryant and eight* other people on his helicopter died this morning when the chopper crashed into a Malibu hillside this morning. He was 41 years old. His daughter, Gianna (13 – see image below) was also on board and died with her father. The other passengers have not been identified as of this writing. His wife was not on board. Kobe was a wonder to watch and it was amazing and jaw dropping what he could do on the basketball court. And he was doing great things off the court in retirement. Gone too soon. Rest in Peace, Kobe, Gianna, and the other souls who died with them this morning.More
