Others on board included Bryant’s daughter, Gianna Bryant, a member of the Mamba Sports Academy’s Travel Basketball team.  Gianna was only 13. 


According to reports by NBC News, John Alltobelli, a baseball coach who had been coaching for 27 years at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, California; Keri Altobelli, his wife; Alyssa Altobelli, his daughter; Payton Chester, a 13-year-old teammate on the Mamba team; Sarah Chester, her mom; and Christina Mauser, another coach, along with a pilot, Ara Zobayan, were killed in the crash.  

Bryant achieved many things on and off the court.  Bryant was an 18 time All-Star, 15 time All-NBA player, 12 time All-Defensive player, five time Finalist, two time Finals MVP, and one time league MVP.  He is also the fourth highest point scorer in NBA history.  The night before his death, LeBron James passed him in the ranks.  Bryant congratulated him on Twitter.

Off the court, he won an academy award for his short film, “Dear Basketball”. He also inspired an entire generation of athletes.

Lakeland Regional High School feels sorrow for the fallen athlete – athletes and non-athletes weighed in:

     Mr. Joe Placenti, history teacher: “Any lose of life is tragic, especially when it comes to young lives like Kobe’s daughter and friends.”

     Daniel Milner, junior: “I remember staying up until 5 a.m. the night of Kobe’s final game. I was sad and upset that such a legendary figure had to say goodbye. This was even more upsetting. Rest in peace Kobe, Gigi, and the other families affected. Kobe will always be my idol and a legend. Mamba Mentality”

Bryant, despite going through years of controversy, was a truly inspirational figure.  Many people will mourn his death for days to come.

“Mamba out!”
