Died at the age of 41 in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, along with 8 others, including his precious 13-year-old daughter Gianna.

“I remember asking him, ‘This is your last year, what do you want to accomplish?’ The Lakers didn’t win the title that year, it was his final year, what were his goals,” Taylor said, and I work to perfect everything in my life. make eggs or basketball. And I will do it every day, for the rest of my life.”
