NBA teams across the league are honoring Kobe Bryant on the court. Nearly all of the 16 teams who played Sunday took a 24-second shot clock violation or held the ball for eight seconds in the backcourt to pay respects to the late NBA legend. Bryant wore number-24 and number-eight during his long Lakers career. Bryant, his 13 year old daughter and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash near L.A. Sunday.       A Southern California family says a 38-year-old mother was a passenger on Kobe Bryant's helicopter that crashed Sunday. Matt Mauser [[ MOW-zer ]] says his wife Christina Michelle Mauser was a loving mom who also loved coaching girl's basketball. Speaking from their home in Huntington Beach, he says Christina had been working with the NBA All-Star's team for girls for about two years.       Congressman Adam Schiff says there will be no exoneration for President Trump without witnesses. The California Democrat is acting as the lead House manager in President Trump's impeachment trial. Schiff told NBC's Meet the Press Sunday that people will recognize the country did not get what the founders intended.        New York Senator Chuck Schumer is calling on the federal government to declare the coronavirus outbreak a public health emergency. On Sunday, he called for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to be given access to 85-million-dollars allocated to fight infectious disease. Schumer says it's a proactive approach and that the money could be used for screening, increasing public awareness, and tracing the virus.        Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang will be back on the debate stage next week. He's the seventh candidate to qualify for the eighth debate. The debate takes places four days before voting begins in the Granite State.        Cage the Elephant is taking home the Grammy for Best Rock Album for their album "Social Cues."
