Even the 22-year-old Kylie Jenner spoke out explaining how she would ride in that exact same helicopter "from time to time" and was well acquainted with the pilot, Ara. This puts things into perspective more and more because no one really knows how this occurrence even happened and it emphasizes further how this accident could have happened to anyone. The conditions Sunday morning were not great for flying as there was a thick blanket of fog covering the Santa Monica mountains where Kobe flew over and ultimately crashed into.


Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna were set out to go to his Mamba Academy, a training facility he and his daughter would regularly go to practice basketball. Gianna was an aspiring WNBA player and was extremely talented and on her way to the big league at the young age of 13. Kobe Bryant was a legendary ballplayer who really changed the game of basketball forever with his phenomenal jump-shooting skills and pristine dribbling capabilities. Bryant and his daughter were always in attendance at Lakers games and loved the sport with their all.

The father-daughter duo was extremely tight between Kobe and Gianna and they shared the same love for basketball. Vanessa Bryant luckily wasn't in the helicopter during the time it crashed. Kobe Bryant's 20 season career gave him national recognition as he won 5 championship rings and received multiple MVP awards as well as two gold medals at the Olympics. Bryant's career extended far outside of basketball as he wrote a New York best-selling novel and created an animated short that earned himself an Oscar award. His legacy on basketball and the arts will forever be strong and his impression on the world will always be there. Kobe Bryant really cultivated himself as a father and man and now whenever someone says his name out loud whenever they shoot a jump shot, it will be forever in remembrance of the legacy he left behind.
