Some things in life are sadly poetic. Yesterday, the world and more specifically, the city of Los Angeles, lost an icon in Kobe Bryant. The Los Angeles Lakers legend died tragically along with his teenage daughter and seven others in a helicopter crash Sunday afternoon. For twenty years, he dazzled audiences at the STAPLES Center as he won five NBA Championships. Yesterday, STAPLES Center went on to honor not one, but two Los Angeles legends who have died tragically in the past year.
