It was a heartwarming sight in Vancouver for fans mourning the loss of Kobe Bryant.
BC Place was lit up purple and yellow Monday in honour of the former Los Angeles Laker star, who was killed in a helicopter crash near Los Angeles Sunday.
Bryant was reportedly travelling to a basketball tournament when his helicopter went down. Bryant’s Mamba Sports Academy in nearby Thousand Oaks was holding a basketball tournament on Sunday.
Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and seven others also died in the crash.
