RIP Kobe Bryant


Recommended Posts

Kobe's daughter Gianna Maria Onore -- aka GiGi -- was also on board the helicopter and died in the crash ... reps for Kobe tell TMZ Sports. She was 13.


We're told they were on their way to the Mamba Academy for a basketball practice when the crash occurred. The Academy is in nearby Thousand Oaks.


very sad

I mean, there's celebrities and then there are icons who almost transcend their industry, in this case sports.  I can't really think of any death comparable since Michael Jackson. 


As an avid Laker hater, I've pretty much followed Kobe's entire career, so it's all still surreal for me.

It was an old helicopter from what I understand. Don’t know anything about a black box though.

Article said they found an iPad that the pilot had been using for navigation.  Don’t know how much of this is true cause you know how the internet is. Hard to believe an iPad would survive a crash at 184 mph.
