    Watch: When Bryant scored 60 points in his final LA Lakers game

    Basketball chiefs have called off the Los Angeles Lakers’ match on Tuesday after the death of their legendary former player Kobe Bryant.

    The 41-year-old died in a helicopter crash in California on Sunday along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven other people.

    The Lakers had been due to host local rivals the LA Clippers.

    The fixture will now take place at a later date “out of respect for the Lakers organisation”, the NBA said.

    Bryant, who retired in 2016 after a 20-year career with the Lakers, was a five-time NBA champion and was named an NBA All-Star 18 times.

    The Lakers, in their first statement since the tragedy, said: “The Los Angeles Lakers would like to thank all of you for the tremendous outpouring of support and condolences.

    “This is a very difficult time for all of us. We continue to support the Bryant family and will share more information as it is available.”
