Not trying to make light of the situation but in reading the obituary I was surprised to see Kobe only won two seasonal scoring titles, considering he's 3rd all time in points scored

if the tail number is correct this is the flight path...many circles over glendale before heading to a more desolate area

The opening odds start here
First 2 games of the day on pace to go over this far. Toronto and San Antonio both ran out the :24 shot clock to recognize Kobe's passing on their opening possessions.

Life is too short.

At least on the brink of death the pilot saved some lives because it seems he steered it away from a highly populated area.

They halted flights from LAX last night due to fog. Heavy this morning. Flight never should have left John Wayne Airport in Irvine. The live
shots shooting the fire and smoke from the debris still showed heavy fog.

Reporter: Sheriff, if there is one thing one can confirm, do we have a confirmation actually of 9 bodies at the scene?"
Sheriff: "Yes, that's our belief."

CNN

Early reporter had interviewee saying other pilots didn't fly because of bad visibility.

Kobe was a legend on the court and just getting started in what would have been just as meaningful a second act. To lose Gianna is even more heartbreaking to us as parents. Michelle and I send love and prayers to Vanessa and the entire Bryant family on an unthinkable day.................Obama Tweet

Reports are that basketball great Kobe Bryant and three others have been killed in a helicopter crash in California. That is terrible news!..........Liar in Chief tweet

Sikorsky S76 cruises at 150mph. It was foggy up high so chopper flew low. It went over my house real loud at 9:07 (I was on phone-time stamp)

405/105 On sunday morning was clear-1 mile visibility. Cruising speed 85 mph. 1 hour NB to TO.

We understand Cryrie. Take the rest of the night off. We're all sad, numb, and sore over this, but are you serious?

Kobe was a regular at El Camino Real Mexican restaurant in Fullerton, CA. His wife Vanessa was originally from Fullerton
before her family moved to Huntington Beach. I'm told when Kobe went in to pick up to go orders he would wait in line
even though they wanted to give him VIP service. He said he was just another customer and waited in line.
