There are many achievements of Kobe Bryant among which the most famous one is the MVP award that he got in the 2008 season. It was the peak of Kobe. Among this, he also holds the record of playing in NBA All-Stars for 15 times and 12 times in the All-Defensive team. Kobe also has won 5 NBA Championships in his career.
He is the greatest player of all time in these sports. He is the youngest player to achieve career points of 30,000 points which is a humongous achievement in NBA. Such an accolated person journey came to an abrupt end at the hands of mother nature.
On the morning of January 29, 2019, Kobe along with his daughter, Gianna boarded the Skorsky S-76 Helicopter owned by Kobe. Along with them are Gigi’s friends and their parents, Orange Coast College baseball coach John Altobelli, his wife Keri their family. With a total of 9 members, the Helicopter left John Wayne Airport at 9:06. At 9:30 the pilot contacted the Burbank Airports control tower and informed about the extream fog and rain. At 9:45 the Helicopter was crashed at the side of a mountain in Calabasas. It has to be noted that all the other Helicopters and Planes were grounded due to the same reason.
The demise of Kobe Bryant is shocking and inconsolable to many of his friends and family. Investigators are looking into how the fog has played a huge part in this devastating event or there any other reason for this crash. Meanwhile, many of the sports personalities are registering their condolence for this unexpected dismissal of Kobe Byant ( August 23, 1978 – January 26, 2020 )
