As the sports world continues to mourn the loss of basketball icon Kobe Bryant, the NBA has announced it will postpone Tuesday's game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers.

The announcement comes a day after Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash in southern California.


Bryant was reportedly on his way to a travel basketball game with Gianna before the aircraft crashed into the ground Sunday.

Bryant is considered one of the best players in NBA history. The longtime Laker brought five NBA titles to Los Angeles and earn a pair of gold medals for the U.S. men's basketball team.

NBA did not specify when the makeup game will be.
