Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, died Sunday morning in a helicopter crash. The 41-year-old Bryant and his daughter were reportedly going to her travel basketball game. All nine people aboard the helicopter were killed. Three other victims include Orange Coast College baseball coach John Altobelli, his wife, Keri, and daughter Alyssa. The cause of the crash is under investigation, but L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva says, “We do know that there were issues of visibility.”

NBA teams and players across the league paid tribute after learning of the tragic death of legend Kobe Bryant. Some teams held the ball for 24 seconds and eight seconds in the backcourt in honor Bryant’s No. 24 and No. 8 jerseys. The Spurs and Raptors were the first teams to do it, as Toronto dribbled out the initial 24-second shot clock to start the game. Atlanta, Hawks guard Trae Young donned a No. 8 jersey in Bryant’s honor. The Mavericks announced they were retiring Bryant’s #24.

Lizzo kicked off the 2020 Grammys at the Staples Center last night by declaring, “Tonight’s for Kobe,” before performing a medley of her hits. Host Alicia Keys also performed a powerful tribute to Kobe and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, with help from Boyz II Men on Sunday night in Los Angeles.
