5 Dead in the helicopter crash according to the Los Angeles County Police.

No names officially released;  TMZ has confirmed Vanessa Bryant was not among those onboard, but no conformation if any of Kobe's 4 daughters were.

Report: Kobe Bryant Dies In California Helicopter Crash
CHRIS CHAVEZ 2 MINUTES AGO


Quote
Kobe Bryant was reportedly killed in a helicopter crash in California on Sunday morning. He was 41 years old.

TMZ was the first to report that Bryant was among those on the helicopter when it went down in the hills of Calbasas and a fire broke out. The crash occurred before 10 a.m. and the fire made it difficult for firefighters and emergency personnel to get to the aircraft.

18–time All-Star and 11-time All-NBA first Team led the Lakers to five NBA championships and scored 33,643 points in his 20-year NBA career. He retired from the Lakers after the 2015-16 season.

Edited due to premature info quoted in the report.

BREAKING: Kobe Bryant Has Died In A Helicopter Crash


Quote


Kobe has famously used a helicopter to travel for years -- dating back to when he played for the Lakers. He was known for commuting from Newport Beach, CA to the STAPLES Center in DTLA in his Sikorsky S-76 chopper.

Stunned right now. Lifelong LAL fan. Kobe was only 2nd to Magic in my heart. Feel like I did at the moment Magic announced he had hiv in Nov ‘91.

I became a Laker fan because of Kobe. He’s four months younger than me. Grew up watching and loving the mans work ethic. Such a stunner

What was more impressive: Kobe’s 81 or Wilt’s 100?


Posted Jan 25, 8:00 AM


Was going to post this yesterday and never got to it due to the Big XII / SEC Challenge marathon

Quote
It’s been 14 years since Kobe Bryant put up 81 points against the Toronto Raptors... Even though it was 19 fewer points than Wilt Chamberlain scored, many feel the Los Angeles Lakers legend performance was more impressive since he was playing against more athletic defenders at 6′6″. However, 100 points are 100 points.

Wilt Chamberlain accomplished something amazing, but it wasn't as impressive as Kobe Bryant's total evisceration of the Toronto Raptors.

Chamberlain was a man amongst boys when he was playing in the NBA. The night he scored 100 was against a Knicks team where he was at least three inches taller than the entire team. He also got help when his teammates fouled the opposition to give him more opportunities to score.

NBA-average-height Bryant scored 81 against freak athletes who have trained most of their lives to be ballplayers. He also did it in the flow of the game without needing extra possessions.

This may be the only instance where 81 is greater than 100.

The first thing Pop said to reporters postgame summarizes mythoughts as well:
“Good game. Tough loss. Who cares. Our thoughts are elsewhere.”
