January 26th marks a painful anniversary in the Conejo Valley which was felt around the world. 

It was a year ago that a helicopter headed from Orange County to Ventura County crashed, killing pro basketball legend Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and seven other people.

Lakers superstar LeBron James admits it’s still hard to accept a year later.  He says time has eased the pain, but it isn’t gone.

The Lakers dedicated last season to Bryant, winning the NBA Finals for the first time in years. James says while time ease the pain, we’ll never forget Kobe.
