After a weekend that began with Lebron James surpassing him on the all-time scoring chart, Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash at the age of 41:
Kobe Bryant died in a helicoper crash in Calabasas Sunday morning … TMZ Sports has confirmed. Kobe was traveling with at least 3 other people in his private helicopter when it went down. A fire broke out. Emergency personnel responded, but nobody on board survived. 5 people are confirmed dead.
Why does anyone who isn’t in the military ever fly on those things?
