NBA legend Kobe Byrant, 41, has been killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California.
His daughter, Gianna, 13, was also on board and died along with three others.
Kobe is considered to be one the greatest NBA players of all time, ranking fourth in the NBA for all-time regular season scoring and all-time postseason scoring.
The LA Lakers retired both of his jerseys, number 8 and 24, making him the only NBA player to receive that honour.
He made 18 All-Star teams during his 20 year career, won 5 NBA championships, 2 NBS Finals MPVs, and was the league MVP in 2008.
