What Exactly Led to the Kobe Bryant Crash That Changed the NBA Forever?

Published

on

Kobe Bryant, one of the most significant figures in the world of basketball, tragically passed away in January 2020. Athletes, executives, and others associated with the NBA poured in their tributes to Kobe. They posthumously inducted him into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Kobe’s demise in the helicopter crash remains one of the NBA’s critical moments.

What were the causes behind Kobe Bryant’s plane crash?

The National Transportation Safety Board conducted an inquiry into the Kobe Bryant helicopter crash. They published the results of their inquiry, causing considerable public outrage. The 86 page report subsequently found pilot error to be the major cause of the crash. The NTSB board also called for safety upgrades to prevent such mishaps in the future.

The report implies that the pilot made a “poor decision” flying at “excessive airspeed” while in an area of poor visibility. The speed of 160 miles per hour and losing visual contact with the ground led to the pilot losing control of the helicopter.

Blaming “self-induced pressure” the NTSB suggested that the pilots’ desire to complete the flight in spite of poor visibility to satisfy his superstar client, Kobe Bryant, is also a major factor.

The NTSB report, however, ruled out any mechanical errors in engines and controls in the helicopter. Air traffic controllers also received a clean chit despite one error which remained inconsequential on the crash. It also absolved the charter company of blame, as they supposedly refrained from applying pressure on the pilot to fly in poor conditions.

Did anyone survive the Kobe Bryant crash?

Kobe’s tragic death occurred on January 26, 2020, when the helicopter he was traveling in crashed into a California hillside. Including Kobe, the helicopter carried nine people on board. Kobe’s daughter, Gianna Bryant, also passed away in the crash. Of the nine people on board, none survived.

The nine people on board suffered immediate fatal injuries. They reportedly died in an instant due to blunt trauma. 13-year-old Gianna donned a jersey with ‘Mamba’ on the front. Kobe is survived by his wife Vanessa Bryant, and daughters Natalia Bianka and Capri Bryant.

The 2008 NBA MVP was a five-time NBA champion with the Los Angeles Lakers and had announced his retirement in 2016.

Published

Simona Halep and her millionaire boyfriend, Toni Iuruc, have arranged every single detail of the wedding that is scheduled in September 2020, just after Simona will finish the US Open. After ending her 2019 WTA season on the 4th place, Simona Halep went in Maldive with Toni Iuruc.

The couple spent beautiful moments there, but what’s even more important is that Simona couldn’t be happier. “Simona Halep gets maximum relaxation time. She does, every day, maintenance sports. She tortures Toni Iuruc with endless bike rides, but she enjoys it big time.

She is, I think, happier than ever. And in the evening, Simona being an incurable romantic, she gets to take the walks that she dreamed about for years, long walks, on the beach, holding hands with her fiance”, a friend of Simona told wowbiz.ro.

And those are not the biggest news. A close acquaintance of Halep’s family confirmed that the two lovebirds will unite their destinies after the 2020 US Open. “They will get married next year in September after she will participate at US Open 2020.

The event will be fabulous, at a luxury restaurant from Constanța and, normally, it will be organised respecting the Aromanian traditions”. , the source said to wowbiz.ro. Moreover, the source gave details about the wedding preparation’s current state.

“All their relatives will participate, tennis personalities, from sport, there will hundreds of guests, maybe a thousand. Everything is already settled and Simona Halep is delighted that she managed to arrange all the details.

Obviously, there are still some unsolved things, like the dress, Toni Iuruc’s wedding suit, but, largely, everything was arranged”.

Simona Halep crushed Serena Williams and won Wimbledon using an edge: her boyfriend

Published

on

Last year, Simona Halep won the first Wimbledon of her career, a rare achievement in any player’s arsenal, but, according to her former coach, Daniel Dobre, she used a secret weapon that helped her raise the Venus Rosewater Dish above her head, following the memorable 6/2, 6/2 triumph over Serena Williams, who failed to record her 24th Grand Slam.

That hidden advantage was nothing else than her boyfriend, Toni Iuruc, who had been cheering her from the stands of an official tournament for the very first time. Daniel Dobre, the coach who helped Simona add her second Grand Slam to her trophy case, unveiled how Toni boosted the Romanian first racket’s performance at the All England Club.

“At Wimbledon, Simona had a very good atmosphere in the team. She met Toni, who accompanied her for the first time during a tournament, so, emotionally, she was in a very good mood. She gave it all, like she usually does, but in a more relaxed way.

The draw was difficult, but in the end, it was an incredible tournament,” said Daniel Dobre on a Tennis with an Accent podcast episode.

Simona Halep has a very powerful personality
Besides talking about Simona Halep’s psychological edge she gained from the presence of her lover, Daniel Dobre, who was dismissed after Darren Cahill returned to team Halep at the start of 2020, explained how Simona’s strong spirit makes her a very independent and straight-forward person.

“She has a very powerful personality. Every decision regarding coaches and her career, she took by herself. It’s weird because in Romania parents decide everything. When she was 14-15 years old, Simona said she wanted to go to Bucharest to train, then that she didn’t want that coach anymore, but the other,” said Dobre.

“She said ‘my back hurts, I’ll go and have a breast reduction surgery. She is a very inspired person when it comes to making these kinds of decisions. In the 12 years I have known her for, she was never late and she doesn’t forget what you had talked with her even if months or entire years have passed”.

The ‘Easy on Me’ hitmaker said that the ‘Jungle Cruise’ actor is the one person who she’d be starstruck to meet and she “nearly fell off” her chair when she received a bouquet of flowers from him as an apology for not being able to be in the audience for her recent ‘One Night Only’ TV special, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

She said: “Someone I’ve never met, that I think I would actually cry, is The Rock. I was the biggest wrestling fan when I was younger! He sent me flowers because he and his wife couldn’t make it to my show and literally I nearly fell off me chair!”

Adele was quick to stress she doesn’t have a crush on the ‘Moana’ star.

She added: “He always paints his little girl’s nails and stuff like that, doesn’t he? He’s so cute. I wish he was my dad… Oh yeah, it’s not like I – I haven’t got a crush on him or anything. It’s just, he’s amazing. He’s just incredible, I want him to be my mate. I want him to be my friend.”

The 33-year-old star is a big fan of the former WWE star, one thing she doesn’t enjoy is ‘Real Housewives’ and she fears her “brain will die” if she starts dedicating time to the Bravo franchise.

Speaking during a ‘Power of Make-Up’ video on NikkieTutorials’ YouTube channel, she explained: “I know a lot of people love it, but I can’t. My brain will die, I can’t…I don’t know who any of them are, so I don’t feel like I can start from the beginning when it’s been on for so long. I’m not going to lie, it doesn’t work for me.”

Adele said she had once tried to watch ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’.

She added: “One time I did watch one episode of ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ when they were all like literally killing each other, but it was too much, I was like I can’t, I can’t watch. I’d rather watch a wildlife programme.”
