FANS MOURNING BRYANT AT MEMORIAL STORY: There were sad scenes outside of the Staples Center, the home of the Los Angeles Lakers, on Monday (January 27) as scores of fans gathered to pay their respects to Kobe Bryant after his death in a helicopter accident the day before.

The Lakers game against the Los Angeles Clippers, scheduled for Tuesday, was postponed following the death of Bryant, the NBA said on Monday.

Bryant, who won five NBA titles in a 20-year career with the Lakers, and his 13-year-old daughter were among nine people who died on Sunday when the helicopter they were in crashed into a hillside outside the town of Calabasas, California.
