Kobe Bryant Among Five Dead in Helicopter Crash (UPDATE)

Chicago Bulls

I am speechless. Kobe Bryant, 41, is dead.

The terrible news was first reported by TMZ:

Bryant was a five-time champion, an 18-times All-Star, a two-time finals MVP, a league MVP, and one of the all-time greats. He retired just four years ago, and is a lock to be inducted – now posthumously – into the Hall of Fame this year.

Bryant and his wife, Vanessa, have four daughters, the youngest of whom was born in June. I don’t really know what to say. I feel sick.

UPDATE: Just awful:
