Time magazine will honor Kobe Bryant with a new magazine cover in February to celebrate the late NBA legend.
What’s going on: Kobe Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others tragically died Sunday in a helicopter crash.
NBA stars — Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert and Mike Conley, among others — and NBA legends — Karl Malone, Shaquille O’Neal and Michael Jordan — shared their support for Bryant and his family after the tragic loss.
Time shared its newest cover for the Feb. 10, 2020, issue, which shows Bryant under a spotlight with a black-and-white tone.
