Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant's House

This map's location has been removed for privacy concerns.
This was the home of Kobe Bryant, a well known NBA basketball superstar. Over his career Bryant won five NBA championships, was an 18-time All-Star, 15-time member of the All-NBA Team, 12-time member of the All-Defensive Team, was named the 2008 NBA Most Valuable Player, and was a two-time NBA Finals MVP winner. Widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, he led the NBA in scoring during two seasons, ranks fourth on the league's all-time regular season scoring and all-time postseason scoring lists.

Kobe played for The Lakers for his entire career. Between salaries and endorsements he earned more than $680 million (before taxes and fees). That is the most amount of money ever earned by an athlete (salary and endorsements alone) from playing on a team sport. The only athletes who have earned more have all earned their fortunes from individual sports. The three athletes who have out-earned Kobe are Tiger Woods, Michael Schumacher and Floyd Mayweather.

On January 26, 2020, Bryant, his 13 year old daughter Gianna, baseball coach John Altobelli, five passengers and the pilot, boarded a Sikorsky S-76B helicopter en route from John Wayne Airport to Camarillo Airport. Tragically the helicopter crashed in Calabasas, California, around 30 miles northwest of Los Angeles. All nine occupants were killed in the crash.

It was reported the following day that the pilot was told that he was at a "too low level for flight following", which he had apparently requested, by air traffic controllers moments before the helicopter crashed into the hillside. This means that the helicopter was too low to be tracked by air traffic control, but does not necessarily mean that it was too low to fly safely.

A spokesperson for the National Transportation Safety Board said on January 31 that Island Express Helicopters, which owned the helicopter that crashed, was not certified to fly in foggy conditions. It is unknown if the pilot was flying on instruments at the time of the crash.

To the Bryant family. Your loss is so tremendous, and I pray that you are able to heal at the loss of a great man, a husband, a dad, a beautiful and talented daughter. Hold those babies and know that they both live through them and in your heart.

Watched James playing in your shell on Saturday. Saw your tweet. Then, My daughter said; “why’s Kobe sitting at home tweeting? Lakers needs you now!” And was seated in the exact spot when you shot me down on Sunday Kobe. “Only you got that soul, Mamba!” RIP!
I’ve struggled with your moments of knowing you couldn’t save your clone, our prodigy and was helpless to all whom were with you. My grandson watched your videos and is convinced you got SuperPower. But...
And God is!!! You did your best!!!

Sorry for the loss. Condolences to all families, friends, and love ones.
SIP!!!

My heart hurts for Kobe and Gigi's family and friends. I can't get this off of my mind. He was my biggest inspiration who impacted so many lives around the world and within the community and his daughter was so young and so much like her dad. The more I hear about him the more I learn how amazing of a person he was which makes me miss him all the more. Praying for Kobe's family everyday. -R.A. #824Forever #RIPMamba #RIPMambacita

God bless you and your daughters/family. I wish you peace and comfort as you are grieving. Words cant describe how sorry I am at this time. Youre in my prayers. As you go through this difficult time, remember that you are all so loved by family, friends and fans. A lifetime together is never enough, but the memories we cherish live a lifetime inside of you and the girls. As long as you live you loved ones will live on through you forever. Kobe & Gigi bond will blossom forever in your hearts and others. Kobe made sure that Gianna wouldnt be scared and held her in his arms before the crash to protect her. Please bury Kobe & Gianna together ...

Helicopter should not of been in the air flying with instruments or not. Even if the pilot had a mile visibility he would of saw that he was approaching fog or low clouds. Something happened to that pilot for this to happen. He circled around why didn't he just land the helicopter instead of trying to get above a cloud. That's carelessness..
