Tragic news not only in the sports world, but in the world in general with the passing of Kobe Bryant. He was in a helicopter crash in California yesterday at 9:47am where all 9 passengers on board did not survive. Also in the helicopter was Kobe’s 13 year old daughter, Gianna, and another player and parent. They were on their way to a travel basketball game and practice.  She was a stellar basketball player herself and was just as competitive as her father. The news comes one day after Kobe was passed by Lebron James for third place on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. Lebron during that game had the words “Mamba 4 life” and “8/24 KB” written in Gold marker. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
