R.I.P. Kobe and Gianna Bryant

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.
