Kobe Bryant is dead

Kobe's daughter Gianna Maria Onore -- aka GiGi -- was also on board the helicopter and died in the crash ... reps for Kobe tell TMZ Sports. She was 13.

We're told they were on their way to the Mamba Academy for a basketball practice when the crash occurred. The Academy is in nearby Thousand Oaks.

What’s basketball?
Pretty much my thought.
I was vaguely aware of who he was ... the only other basketball player I can name is Lebron James.
When I told my wife, she was like "Oh My GOD!!!".
She knew all about him except his basketball life.
She provided the 'People's magazine' version of his life.

My wife don't even know who I am let alone any sports figure.

I just heard that Kobe retired in 2015 so Lebron is the only basketball player I can name.
