The NBA world mourns the passing of Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant and his daughter were among five people killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, on Sunday, a source confirmed to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Bryant was 41.

Drafted 13th overall in 1996 out of Lower Merion High School, Bryant was a five-time NBA champion, a two-time NBA Finals MVP and the 2008 MVP. The 18-time All Star retired in 2016 after 20 seasons in the league, all with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The NBA world past and present — many of whom shared the court with the 2020 Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame nominee — expressed their condolences on social media.

The sports world joined the NBA in remembering Bryant’s legendary career and impact.
