Basketball Legend Kobe Bryant dies in a Helicopter Crash

American basketball baller Kobe Bryant, 41 reportedly died in a helicopter crash on Sunday.

Kobe Bean Bryant was an American professional basketball player. A shooting guard, Bryant played his entire 20-year career in the National Basketball Association with the Los Angeles Lakers. He entered the NBA directly from high school and won five NBA championships.

Bryant, who won five titles with the Los Angeles Lakers, was traveling to a basketball game with his 13-year-old daughter when they and seven other people died in the crash.

The helicopter went down near Calabasas, about 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, in a smoking condition. 

Authorities were investigating the cause of the smoke. The helicopter was on its way from Bryant's home in Orange County, Calif., to his youth basketball academy northwest of Los Angeles for a game in which his daughter, Gianna, who died in the crash, was going to play.

A very sad story indeed because Bryant wasn't only a basketball as good a lebron James, he was also a hero grooming several young NBA stars before his demise.

May his soul and the souls of the departed rest in peace.
