Good morning everyone. I’d like to kick things off by honoring the lives of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna, as well as several other people who were killed tragically in a helicopter crash on Sunday morning. The impact he had on the sporting universe can’t be measured, and it’s a heart-wrenching ending to a legendary career. May they rest in peace.

With that, here’s what else you need to know today.
