Hi, it’s Rich Dale. Tragedy has a horrible way of striking when you don’t expect it at all. Such is the case with basketball legend Kobe Bryant. As reported by TMZ, Bryant was killed in a helicopter crash that occurred earlier today (Sunday). To add to it, 4 others were killed in the crash, including Kobe’s daughter Gianna.
Until yesterday, Bryant was #3 on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. Yesterday, he was passed on that list by LeBron James. Bryant had been the youngest player in NBA history when he was drafted in 1996.
