This news is absolutely earth shattering, the world has lost a great one -- Kobe Bryant, along with his daughter Gianna and 7 others in a terrible helicopter crash.
There's no need to get into detail about what happened, we all definitely know that by now. But the world is still definitely in mourning after this news & cities across the nation are showing their love for the Bryant family in many ways.
Philadelphia being one in particular, considering this is where the Basketball superstar was born.
He graduated from Lower Merion High School before immediately getting drafted into the NBA. In which case, the school was the optimal point of remembrance for the legend here in Philadelphia.
Needless to say, Philadelphians went to show their love for Kobe Bryant outside the Bryant Gymnasium that was named in his honor.
