The world was shocked to find out that legendary NBA Star Kobe Bryant had died, and tributes are going around online to remember him and his daughter Gianna. Seeing that Bryant was considered to be a ‘superhero' to generations of kids, Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman had put up this tribute remembering Bryant.

Here's his post:

Just to make a small gauge of how influential Bryant was, here's a tribute to him that perfectly summarized who he was to his fans:

The news of Bryant's death certainly came as a shock to the world, and we've been getting tributes not just from basketball fans, but from people who were aware of Bryant's influence. Personally I wasn't a fan myself, but I sincerely feel for the communities who saw Bryant as their hero. It's always sad to see someone who's changed so many lives die so young.

Yesterday morning, news had come out that Bryant, along with his daughter Gianna, were part of a helicopter crash that killed everyone onboard. We don't know exactly what happened, but it was said that the weather was a strong factor when it came to the accident; the fog was said to be so thick that other choppers in the area were grounded.


As of now, it's said that the area where the helicopter crashed is hard to reach, and there is trouble when it comes to the bodies being recovered. Hopefully we get more news about the specifics of the crash soon.
