Kobe Bryant, an icon to Indian Country


January 28, 2020

Hopi basketball coach JJ Jones and his Natives With Talent club basketball players are probably the only ones in Indian Country to have bragging rights against NBA Legend Kobe Bean Bryant on the basketball court.

Bryant, a long-time player for the Los Angeles Lakers, died suddenly on Jan. 26 as a result of a helicopter crash in Southern California. He was 41. Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter Gianna also died in the crash, along with seven others; Ara Zobayan, Christina Mauser, John Altobelli, Keri Altobelli, Alyssa Altobelli, Sarah Chester and Payton Chester. Federal authorities continue to investigate the Sikorsky S-76 chopper crash. The crash happened shortly after 9 a.m. PST when it slammed into the side of a hill in Calabasas, California, according to multiple reports. Thick fog was reported in the area.
