The NBA world convulsed when news broke that retired legend Kobe Bryant died Sunday in a helicopter crash. Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter Gianna also passed away. Dwyane Wade, who will have his jersey retired by the Heat next month, called today one of the saddest in his lifetime.

Heat President Pat Riley also released a statement.

Many other Heat players also reacted to the news. Tyler Herro said that every team should retire Bryant’s No. 24 jersey.
