Make Kobe and Gigi Bryant the cover athlete for NBA 2K21

On January 26, 2020, a Sikorsky S-76B helicopter crashed in Calabasas, California, around 30 miles (48 kilometres) northwest of downtown Los Angeles, while on route from John Wayne Airportto Camarillo Airport. Nine people were on board, including retired NBA basketball player Kobe Bryant, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, baseball coach John Altobelli, five other passengers, and the pilot. Everyone on the helicopter was killed.  Kobe has changed the game of basketball I’m so many ways. His 81 point game against the Raptors is the second most points ever scored in a NBA game! He was a MVP (most valuable player) in 2008. A 5 TIME NBA champion. 2 time Finals MVP. And a 18 time all star all while sticking to his favorite childhood team, the Los Angeles Lakers before retiring with a 60 point game on his last game as a NBA player. Kobe Bryant died way to soon and had so many more great years ahead of him he had 2 daughters now leaving 1 as of Gianna’s death. Kobe was loved by so many people as well as all time NBA greats. Kobe’s death reached #1 trending on that date with many people talking about the tragic accident such as, LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Michael Jordan, and Stephen Curry. His death got so big that players were taking tribute to Kobe by letting the 24 second clock run out. And a 8 second behind the court violation (8 and 24 were both Kobe’s numbers.) Kobe has been seen on many 2K covers such as, NBA 2K9 and  NBA 2K17. In conclusion, Kobe and his daughter deserves as much love as he could possibly get for everything they  had offered to this world. Gianna was planning on playing in the WNBA (women’s basketball.) Plus, with all the pain that is taking place in the world at the moment, we need to spread love towards Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and everyone who died in that plane crash on that very terrible day.

Petition to Federal Aviation Administration, Donald J. Trump, Steve Dickson Administrator, National Transportation and Safety Board, Daniel K. Elwell Deputy Adminstrator, Ali Bahrami Associate Administrator Aviation Safety, Steve Dickson

Demand mandatory safety measures for helicopters

On Sunday, January 26, 2020, a Sikorsky S-76B helicopter carrying five-time champion NBA basketball star and the league's fourth all-time leading scorer, Kobe Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, along with 7 others closely associated with Bryant crashed into the rugged terrain in Calabasas, California near Malibu, in dense fog. The impact killed all aboard.  In March 2004, a similar helicopter carrying 10 people crashed into the Gulf of Mexico in a night-time flight. All 10 people were killed by the impact. In 2006, records show the National Transportation and Safety Board, (NTSB), recommended that the Federal Aviation Administration require helicopters like the one carrying Kobe Bryant and family and friends be equipped with a Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS) technology to prevent such crashes. Shockingly, the FAA refused this crucial safety technology. Now, 9 more people have been killed unnecessarily by a preventable crash had this technology been incorporated. This is unconscionable that the FAA would still, after 14 years, not make this warning system required on these types of helicopters. Please sign this petition demanding the FAA require TAWS technology to prevent more crashes and lives lost.
