    I thinnk TMZ broke the story so people held back reporting on it.

    I was never a fan of him but these are terrible news.
    He is not yet in the HOF. I gather they should hold a special ceremony to induct him as soon as it can be done respectfully. After this tragedy, he should be honored in a different, special way.
    Face it. It's the apocalypse.

    From the LA Times:

    Kobe Bryant, the legendary basketball star who spent 20 years with the Los Angeles Lakers, was killed Sunday when the helicopter he was traveling in crashed and burst into flames Sunday morning amid foggy conditions in the hills above Calabasas, sources told the L.A. Times.

    The crash occurred shortly before 10 a.m. near Las Virgenes Road, south of Agoura Road, according to a watch commander for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

    The crash ignited a brush fire and made it difficult for firefighters and emergency personnel to get to the aircraft, he said.

    The fire was contained to the crash site, officials said. There were no homes in the area, and no roadways were impacted.

    Seeing some interviews post career he seemed like a nice guy... had written some kids books and series. My brother is a huge Lakers fan and he told me his daughter just discovered his Kobe jersey the other day and was wearing it all weekend.

    One sexual assault aside though. It was settled out of court so we shouldn’t forget that.

    Yeah. I also read Rick Fox was on board. There's a lot out there right now.

    It’s incredibly irresponsible for any reporter or media organization to speculate as to who else was on the helicopter. It’s OK to not know and report nothing. There’s NO NEED to rush to be “first” about something like this.

    Rumors are that additional passengers are Rick Fox and Kobe's daughters. I can't take this news. I need to go to sleep and start this day over. The news about Kobe is terrible and heartbreaking. I don't want to believe it gets worse than that.

    Nothing has been confirmed yet Jazz so right now it is all rumor. Everyone reporting needs to slow their roll.

    rolandsmartin @rolandsmartin
    To all news media: Please stop with conflicting reporting. First, news reports say five dead in the helicopter that killed
    @kobebryant. Now folks are saying
    @RickFox & Kobe’s four daughters. Plus the pilot. That’s six. Let’s wait for official confirmation. PLEASE. Too devastating
