The world was hit with tragic news on January 26, 2020 as phones buzzed all over the world receiving the devastating news of the passing away of Kobe Bryant and his 13 year old daughter Gianna Maria Onore Bryant in a terrible helicopter accident.

Kobe Bryant was an inspiration to all as fans and cities across the world have been paying tribute to the loss of one of the best basketball players in the NBA, and to the loss of a father, husband, son and dear friend to many.

Bryant left behind a legacy that will live on in the hearts and memories of people all over, as he was a five time NBA champion and one of the league’s top scorers of all time. He entered the NBA straight out of high school at the young ae of 17 years old and he spent the next 20 years of his life making history with the Los Angeles Lakers before retiring in 2016.

The world is mourning the loss of Kobe Bryant and Gianna Bryant, and we are sending our thoughts and prayers to the family and all those mourning their loss. May their souls rest in peace.

You mean so much to us all here especially #LakerNation and it’s my responsibility to put this shit on my back and keep it going!!
