A tragic ending to an immense legacy, Kobe Bryant passed away earlier today at 41, sending shock waves throughout the community. His 13-year-old daughter, Gianna Maria Onore, also passed. Upon finishing one of the most legendary careers the NBA has ever seen, Kobe actively pursued his creative interests, receiving an Oscar award for Best Animated Short Film with Dear Basketball, a film he wrote and further narrated that detailed his unstoppable love for the game. His legacy will forever extend beyond the game he made so many fall in love with.

Today, his teammates, fellow NBA players, and an array of celebrities are mourning this catastrophic loss alongside millions of his fans.
