Kobe Bryant (commonly known as the Black Mamba) was the reason I started playing basketball.
Unfortunately, on 26th January 2020, the world lost Kobe Bryant when his helicopter crashed in the hills above Calabasas.
Gianna, his beloved 13-year-old daughter was also on board along with 7 others who died when the helicopter burst into flames.
You do not have to be an LA Lakers fan to be shocked by this news. The 5 times world champion and possibly one of the very top NBA players had given his absolute best.
