ARDMORE, Pa. (WLVR)– People in Pennsylvania are paying homage to LA Lakers Legend Kobe Bryant at his former high school in Montgomery County.

Since Sunday night, a memorial has been growing for Bryant outside of the Lower Merion High School gym in Ardmore that bears his name.

South Philadelphia resident Michael Briggs brought a teddy bear to the memorial.

“It hurt really bad to find out that someone you grew up watching, someone that helped the community in more ways than one, and to find out that his daughter was with him, it hurts even more,” said Briggs.

Bryant and eight other people- including his 13-year-old daughter Gianna- were killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California on Sunday morning.

Over his career, Bryant won 5 NBA Championships, two gold medals and was an 18-time All-Star.
