Former Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant has passed away after a horrific helicopter crash.
TMZ also reported that no one on board the helicopter survived the crash.
Bryant was considered one of the greatest NBA players of all-time as a 1996 first-round draft pick, making 17 All-Star teams in twenty years with Los Angeles. Bryant won 5 NBA championships, was the 2008 league MVP and won 2 NBA Finals MVPs.
He will also be remembered for his historic 81-point performance. Wilt Chamberlain has only totaled more points in a single game in NBA History (100).
In Bryant’s final game, he scored 60 points against the Utah Jazz and led the Lakers to a victory.
He was just 41-years old.
