The NBA community is crying over Kobe's death. The former Los Angeles Lakers superstar and considered as one of the greatest of all-time in the history of NBA, at age 41 years old, he died in a Helicopter Crash on Sunday.
Together with Gianna "Gigi"Bryant, Kobe's 13 years old daughter also died on that accident. Gianna was starting her career on basketball and sometimes called as the "Mambacita".
It is not new for his fans seeing him arriving on a Helicopter because he was used to it, every game in his whole playing career traveling from Newport Beach, his home going to Staples Center to avoid traffic and not exacerbate the pain from his injuries.
Hundreds of mourners gathered early to the Staples Center to offer Kobe and his daughter prayers and flowers. The social media community all over the world was stunned because of this tragedy. Famous artist, presidents, fellow NBA players, even an ordinary fan were all crying because of the unexpected accident.
