Kobe Bryant

Today I’m going to tell you who Kobe Bryant is and also explain how he died.

First, Kobe Bryant is a famous basketball player, he was 41 years old and had 4 children (Natalia, Gianna , Bianka , and Capri). He was born on August 23rd, 1978 in Pennsylvania and died on January 26th, 2020 in California. His wife is Vanessa Laine Bryant.

Then, Kobe Bryant was the son of a former NBA player called Joe Bryant. Kobe was first selected by the Charlottes Hornets in 1996 but then the Hornets traded him to the Lakers. He is regarded as one of the best NBA players of all time.

Moreover, Kobe Bryant published a book The Mamba Mentality: How I Play in 2018. 

Finally, Kobe died in a helicopter accident with his daughter Gianna. He was going to the Mamba Academy, a sports center owned by the star. The aircraft crashed shortly before 10am, when a fog enveloped the region. Unfortunately the pilot lost control and couldn’t save anyone. The helicopter didn’t have a black box so it’s difficult to know how it really happened.
