Very sad.

First reports I heard, there were 5 on board, now I'm hearing there were 9. They were headed to an AAU game. Makes me wonder if there were other AAU
players on board with them.

Orange Coast College baseball coach John Altobelli was among the victims of the helicopter crash that also killed former Lakers star Kobe Bryant, OCC assistant coach Ron La Ruffa confirmed Sunday, Jan 26.

Altobelli’s brother Tony, Orange Coast College’s sports information director, told CNN that Altobelli’s wife Keri and daughter Alyssa also were among the crash victims. Alyssa was a club basketball teammate of Bryant’s 13-year-old daugther Gianna Bryant who also was killed in the crash. The other victims have not yet been identified.

Tennis community pays tribute to Kobe Bryant, one of world's 'greatest sportsmen'

Quote:
"Woke up this morning with the horrible news of the tragic death of one of the greatest sportsmen in the world," Rafael Nadal wrote on Twitter. "Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and other passengers. My condolences to his wife and families. I am in shock."

"Kobe has been one of my mentors," Djokovic told ESPN during an off-day interview Saturday. "I've had several phone conversations with him and also of course, when we saw each other in the last couple of years, when I was going through my injury with the elbow and struggling to kind of mentally and emotionally handle all these things that were happening to me ... he was one of the people who was really there for for me and could give some very valuable guidelines.

"I'm very grateful to him for being there for me. I love Kobe, who doesn't? Amazing guy and one of the best basketball players and athletes of all time."

Rod Laver was among others to offer their condolences.

"Terribly sad to wake up to this news today," he wrote on Twitter. "RIP Kobe Bryant. Too young. Deepest condolences to family and friends of the sporting legend."


Quote:
"Few athletes transcend their sport, fewer athletes yet transcend sport itself, and Kobe was one of those people," Navratilova said on the Tennis Channel.

"Tragedy beyond words. What I really appreciate about him as a man is his support of women's sports, girls' sports. Most male athletes don't that, so we thank him for that. It's just a shame that his second act may have been even greater than his basketball career."

Kobe
by Derek Jeter (the Player’s Tribune)

All I ever needed to know about Kobe Bryant was this: that throughout our friendship, the most meaningful conversations we had — they were always about family. Put aside one of the all-time great basketball careers for a second. Put aside his famous work ethic, the Mamba mentality, that incredible will to win. I’ll let everyone else tackle that. But when I think of Kobe, I really just end up thinking about those special few personal conversations that we were lucky enough to share together, each time one of us had a new baby daughter. I end up thinking about how, here was this guy who was beyond gifted as an athlete, who was obsessed with being a champion, who was known as an absolute assassin with a ball in his hands. And in the moments I got to spend with him? He didn’t really talk about any of that. He cared much more about being a husband to Vanessa and a dad to his girls. He loved his family — he was his family. That’s what was important.

And that’s the Kobe I’ll remember.
