NBA teams are expected to honor Kobe Bryant during tonight's games. The longtime Lakers superstar who retired four years ago was killed Sunday morning in a helicopter crash near Los Angeles. Eight others, including Bryant's 13-year-old daughter Gianna, also died in the crash.        The National Museum of African American History and Culture is among many remembering basketball legend Kobe Bryant. The organization posted a tweet expressing their condolences that read: "We mourn the loss of five-time NBA champion Kobe Bryant. Our thoughts are with the Bryant family and also the families of the other passengers." The retired baller and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, died in a helicopter crash yesterday morning in Calabasas, California.        The Democratic managers of the House impeachment effort are again calling for John Bolton to testify after a bombshell report on what he knows about the Ukraine scandal. The New York Times reported that in his upcoming book, the former National Security Adviser says that President Trump told him that he'd continue to freeze military aid to Ukraine until they opened investigations against his rivals. A statement from the House managers said senators should push for Bolton to be called as a witness.        U.S. officials report a rocket attack on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad Sunday. Several rockets reportedly struck the embassy's dining area. No one was killed but one minor injury was reported. The U.S. State Department reacted to the attack by calling on Iraqi forces to fulfill its obligations to protect the embassy.       Tens of thousands of people are likely infected with the potentially deadly coronavirus and governments need to take drastic measures to contain its spread. That dire warning out today from medical experts at the University of Hong Kong who said that the number of cases is likely far higher than what's been reported so far. The experts estimate that the number of infections is doubling every six days.        Billie Eilish is making history at the 2020 Grammys, awarded Sunday night in Los Angeles. The 18-year-old superstar won the awards for Best New Artist, Best Pop Vocal Album, Song of the Year, Record of the Year and the top prize, Album of the Year for her debut "When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?" She's youngest person to win Album of the Year, taking the record from Taylor Swift.
