January 26, 2020 marks the day American sports have changed forever. A helicopter went down taking the life of former NBA superstar Kobe Bryant and 8 others including his daughter, 13-year-old Gigi Bryant. The helicopter went down in Calabasas and just seconds before it went down the pilot asked for special permission to fly through thick fog. There are several videos capturing the fatal crash, leaving everybody in awe. It is still unclear why the copter took flight this day, it was normal for Kobe to fly his private helicopter, only with his pilot, Ara Zobayan. Many petitions have been created to change the NBA logo to Kobe Bryant in his memory. America is very starstruck about the situation. The face of American basketball has truly changed forever.
