There were nine victims in total including Kobe and his daughter Gianna, college baseball coach John Altobelli, along with his wife Keri and daughter Alyssa, Christina Mauser, Sarah Chester, Payton Chester and the pilot Ara Zobayan.
Luka is just one of many people to honor them.
It’s a dark time in the NBA, but especially for the family and friends of those involved in the incident. Our thoughts and prayers are with them all as they grieve the losses of the people they love.
