It’s with a heavy heart that we have to report on the sudden tragic death of one of the greatest athletes of all time, Kobe Bryant.
TMZ reports that Bryant’s was traveling with at least three other persons when his private helicopter crashed near Calabasas. There was a reported fire, and emergency crews rushed to the scene, but were not able to save anyone. All fiver persons on board are reported. Vanessa Bryant, Kobe’s wife of nearly twenty years is not reported to have been among the deceased.
The outpour of love and shock, is overwhelming on social media. Bryant was as big off the court as he was on.
Unbelievably sad. Out of words.

There are going to be a lot of complicated reactions to Kobe Bryant’s death but I feel all the sympathy in the world for Vanessa Bryant and their four daughters. 41 is so young. And he had a spectacular professional career.
