Since Kobe Bryant died

A number of players have been critical of the NBA’s decision to play after hearing of Bryant’s death.

Marc Gasol has said it wasn’t the correct time to play and Paul George made his feelings clear.

Again, there are numerous requests from NBA fans to remove the No.24 from all franchises in the league and change the NBA logo, which bears the silhouette of Jerry West.

Some investigators believe that the fog could have caused Bryant’s helicopter accident. Although initial investigations have only just started, some believe the dense fog could be a possible cause of the crash.

Kurt Deetz, an ex-pilot from Island Express Helicopters, gave his account of the conditions on Sunday, indicating that the helicopter was in perfect condition and the accident was probably caused by the weather conditions. “The probability of a twin-engine failure, in that helicopter model, just doesn’t happen,” Deetz said.

The Los Angeles Police Department ordered their helicopters to land due to excess fog, and made that decision on Sunday morning due to poor flying conditions.

I loved Kobe – he was like a little brother to me. We used to talk often and I will miss those conversations very much. He was a fierce competitor, one of the greats of the game and a creative force.

Yvette joins me in sending my deepest condolences to Vanessa, the Lakers organization and basketball fans around the world.”
