Repost: NBA Legend Kobe Bryant Dies in Helicopter Crash

Legendary NBA player Kobe Bryant has died in a California helicopter crash, reports said Sunday.

He was 41.

The retired Los Angeles Lakers star was traveling in his private helicopter over Calabasas when a fire broke out, sending the chopper spiraling from the sky, according to TMZ Sports.

The crash occurred around 10 a.m. local time amid foggy conditions in the hills overlooking Calabasas, with the Sikorsky S-76 chopper sparking a brush fire on impact that hampered initial rescue efforts, according to The Los Angeles Times, which confirmed the deaths of Bryant and four others aboard the craft.

Authorities later revealed that nine people are believed to have died in the crash. There were no survivors, and the cause of the crash is under investigation, according to TMZ.

Bryant’s wife, Vanessa, was not among those aboard the chopper, but his 13-year-old daughter Gianna was, according to reports.

He is survived by the couple’s other three daughters: Natalia, 17; Bianka, 3; and Capri Kobe Bryant, born just last June.

Bryant, a Philadelphia native, starred for two decades with the Lakers, winning five championships and making 18 All-Star Games before hanging up his basketball shoes following the 2016 season.

The stunning death of the sweet-shooting guard came just hours after he toasted fellow NBA icon and current Laker LeBron James for passing him for third place on the league’s all-time scoring list.

“Continuing to move the game forward @KingJames,” wrote Bryant on Saturday night in what would prove to be his final tweet. “Much respect my brother.”

Bryant concluded the message with an emoji of a bicep flexing, and the hashtag “#33644,” one point more than he scored in his illustrious career.

Bryant was considered a lock to be among the next class inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, set to be announced next month.

    1. I can not believe as well. This is too shocking for me. Look how our life is so fragile that any moment we will see God face to face and held accountable to everything we’ve done. Let us go back to God

    4. I can imagine him bargaining to God habang yakap yakap ang anak. Nakikiusap na sya na lang at hayaang mabuhay ang anak. Yung sinasabi nya sa anak na mahal na mahal nya sila

  65. Kobe was the ultimate competitor. He set a good example for his work ethic. When he retired, he became a mentor to a lot of NBA stars. Makikita sa interviews kung gaano kalaki ang impact nya sa league and sa players personally.
    Rest in peace, GOAT, your daughter Gigi and the sa mga kasama nyo sa helicopter.
    Salamat sa pag-inspire. A part of my childhood died today.
