On Sunday, following the announcement that a helicopter in Calabasas tragically crashed, killing all nine passengers, including Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, the Mavericks have planned a tribute in honor of Bryant.
Mavericks owner Mark Cuban made a statement Sunday evening, declaring that “the number 24 will never again be worn by a Dallas Maverick.”
“We are shocked and saddened by the devastating news of the passing of Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna,” Cuban said in the statement. “Kobe was an ambassador for our game, a decorated legend, and a global icon. Above all, he was a loving and dedicated father.”

“Our hearts go out to all the lives lost and the families impacted by this terrible tragedy. We send out thoughts and prayers to Vanessa and the family, the Lakers organization, and Kobe Bryant fans everywhere.”
