They believe, according to flight logs, that nine were aboard the helicopter.

Bryant and GiGi were on their way to Mamba Academy for basketball practice. Seven other people, including another parent and player, were aboard the aircraft.

Gianna, Bryant's second-eldest of four daughters with wife Vanessa, was an up and coming basketballer who wanted to follow in her father's footsteps.

To no surprise, the sports world took to Twitter to offer their condolences.

The big picture: A Philadelphia native, Bryant won five National Basketball Association championships and made 18 All-Star teams. The facility operates five basketball courts, five volleyball courts, two beach volleyball courts, a turf field, an esports training ground, batting cages, pitching mounds, and a Gracie Barra jiu-jitsu school.

He is now ranked fourth for all-time regular season scoring and all-time postseason scoring. The Staples Center, which Kobe called home for two decades, will undoubtedly temporarily transform into the scene of a wake.

In his 1,566th and final game for the Lakers in April 2016 he scored 60 points for the sixth time.
