On the 26th January 2020, 41 year old champion basketball player Kobe Bryant was killed in a helicopter crash.
The Lakers legend was on his way to a basketball match when the helicopter crashed into a mountain near Calabasas in California and fell more than 20,000 feet per minute. The crash killed 9 people including the NBA star and his daughter Gianna who was only 13 years old and a great future basket player in the making.
During the Oscars awards show on Sunday 10th February, Bryant was included in the Academy’s In Memoriam video montage, dedicated to those in Hollywood who passed away in the last year. The giant will be missed for years to come.
