The legendary NBA All-Star played his entire 20-year career with the LA Lakers, was an 18-time All-Star, 15-time member of the All-NBA Team, member of the All-Defensive team 12 times, won 5 NBA Championships and was NBA's MVP in 2008.

The private aircraft, reportedly belonged to him, and was carrying at least 3 other people when it went down in Calabasas, CA on the morning of Sunday, Jan 26. Sadly, none of the people on board survived. 5 people have been confirmed dead.  Sadly, Kobe's daughter, Giana, 13 has died alongside him.

Kobe leaves behind his wife Vanessa, 37, who was not with Kobe at the time of the crash, and their three surviving daughters: Natalia, 17, Bianka, 3, and Capri, 7 months.

Bryant, a surefire Hall of Famer, was the third-leading scorer in NBA history until only yesterday, when Lebron James passed his 33,643 points. James donned a special pair of Nike shoes during the game with Bryant's initials, jersey numbers and "Mamba 4 Life," a reference to Kobe's nickname.

Bryant congratulated James on the milestone after the game:

After news of Bryant's death broke, Hollywood, the sports world and fans and even Donald Trump were quick to react.

I’m heartbroken by this news, Kobe was a true legend.
