Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna Maria Onore Bryant, known as “GiGi,” died in a Sunday morning helicopter crash in Calabasas, Calif. They were among nine people on board, all of whom were killed in the crash.

The news of Bryant’s death sent shock and sadness throughout the sports world and beyond. Stars from across the NBA, fans and friends poured their emotions into tributes on social media to honor one of the greatest players in basketball history.

“Words can’t describe the pain I’m feeling,” Michael Jordan said in a statement. “I loved Kobe — he was like a little brother to me.”

The Golden State Warriors cut their practice short to grieve Bryant’s death. In Denver, the Nuggets and the Houston Rockets held a moment of silence to remember Bryant.
