NBA Legend Kobe Bryant Dies In A Helicopter Crash

NBA legend Kobe Bryant is among five people killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, a source confirmed to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Bryant was 41.

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, there were no survivors of the crash. An investigation is ongoing.

The crash comes one day after Bryant was passed by Lakers forward LeBron James for third place on the NBA's all-time scoring list. As late as 10:39 p.m. ET on Saturday night, Bryant was active on social media, congratulating James on Twitter during the Lakers' 108-91 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.

James inscribed his sneakers with "Mamba 4 Life" and "8/24 KB" in gold marker before the game, showing respect for Bryant, an 18-time All-Star with the Lakers who is eligible for the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2020. All week, in the lead-up to the milestone, he was quick to laud Bryant.

"It's another guy that I looked up to when I was in grade school and high school," James said. "Seeing him come straight out of high school, he is someone that I used as inspiration. It was like, wow. Seeing a kid, 17 years old, come into the NBA and trying to make an impact on a franchise, I used it as motivation.

He helped me before he even knew of me because of what he was able to do. So, just to be able to, at this point of my career, to share the same jersey that he wore, be with this historical franchise and just represent the purple and gold, it's very humbling and it's dope.

Bryant has been married to Vanessa Laine Bryant since 2001, and they had four daughters together. His father Joe "Jellbean" Bryant is a former NBA player.

"Kobe's a legend, that's for damn sure."

A 6-foot, 6-inch small forward with the ability to swing up front and play point or shooting guard, Bryant entered the NBA straight out of high school. In 1996, he became the youngest player in NBA history.

He won five NBA titles in his time with the Lakers, as well as two Olympic gold medals playing for the United States. Now fourth on the NBA's all-time scoring list, with 33,643 points, Bryant won two NBA Finals MVP awards and one NBA regular-season MVP nod in 2008.

A native of Philadelphia, Bryant was selected No. 13 overall in 1996 by the Charlotte Hornets before being traded to the Lakers. He wore both No. 8 and 24 with the Lakers, both of which were retired by the franchise.

"I'm happy just to be in any conversation with Kobe Bean Bryant. One of the all-time greatest basketball players to ever play, one of the all-time greatest Lakers," James said Saturday night. "The man got two jerseys hanging up in Staples Center. It's just crazy."

Bryant is the only player in NBA history to have multiple jerseys retired by a single franchise.

His highest scoring game came on Jan. 22, 2006 when he scored 81 points against the Raptors. That's the second-most points in a game in NBA history, behind Wilt Chamberlain's 100 on March 2, 1962.
Kobe and His Girls!!! 

On Nov. 29, 2015, Bryant announced that he intended to retire at the end of the season, which launched a farewell tour for the ages around the NBA. He played in 66 games that season for Los Angeles, averaging 17.6 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists.

In his final game, on April 13, 2016, he scored 60 points, leading the Lakers past the Utah Jazz 101-96.

While Bryant was an unqualified star on the court, he did have controversy off it. He was accused of sexual assault in Colorado in 2003. The criminal case was dropped the next year, but Bryant still issued an apology.

He said that he considered the encounter to be consensual but recognized that the woman "did not and does not view this incident the same way I did."

Bryant's death was first reported by TMZ

Men get intimidated by beautiful and smart women
Understand that there are guys out there who don’t bother to shoot their shot when they come across a beautiful lady, in their mind, she’s very much engaged, besides there’s the fear of being turned down. So, they’d rather go for dross than chase gold.

Modern women no longer believe in fairy tales
Fairy tales are filled with princesses and their prince Charming living happily-ever-after, but in the real world, and for the 21st-century woman, her mind is turned away from the concept of finding true love when she understands the reality of heartbreak, infidelity, and betrayal.

Is Your Child Ready For A Smartphone?

No doubt, smartphones are a source of communication and information. You can easily pick up your phone and contact your sibling or a friend, desiring to pass across important information.

While it has profound reasons why people should use it, there are ample reasons why it ought not to be introduced to children.

Do you really think your kid is ready for a cell phone? When is the right time to
However, there are many risks involved in giving a child a smartphone to use.

The child will have access to the internet and will surely, whether he likes it or not, be exposed to violent or inappropriate contents. And this will pose a very big danger in his life if he is unable to control what he sees on the internet.

In addition, children with smartphones always stay up late into the night playing games and/or texting their friends. This has adverse effects on their sleep and learning.

Extra calls, extra charges. Children love talking to people, especially their schoolmates. The calling bills will surely come from you. And if proper orientation is not given them, there will likely be occasions when they will even be called by a member of the opposite sex.

Parents, please think carefully before giving your child a smartphone to use.
