    TMZ is really good about chasing famous people around and snapping pictures.

    LA Times also reporting the crash but haven't confirmed Kobe was one of the passengers yet.

    TMZ is actually pretty reliable when it comes to celebrity deaths.

    This is ******* crazy

    This one hit me hard. He appeared to be one of the greats that was going to continue being an ambassador for the league.

    I don’t know what the crash rate is on small helicopters and planes but it sure seems like it’s high (at least relative to commercial flights).

    Rides in helicopters and little turboprop planes are things I want no part of. My anxiety would be through the roof.
