It's been a day since the world learned of Kobe Bryant's passing, and comprehending the enormity of what happened hasn't seemed to get any easier.

Bryant, 41, was one of nine victims in a helicopter crash Sunday morning near Calabasas. Other victims who were identified include his 13-year-old daughter Gianna; Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa head baseball coach John Altobelli, his wife Keri and their daughter Alyssa; girls basketball coach Christina Mauser; Sarah Chester and her 13-year-old daughter Payton; and helicopter pilot Ara Zobayan.

Hours after Bryant's death was reported, fans filled L.A. Live, gathered near the crash site, left flowers near landmarks and used their talents to pay homage to the star whose transcendent talent and dedication to basketball inspired people across Southern California and around the world.

Here's what it looks like here:

KING JAMES

The last tweet Kobe Bryant sent was a shoutout to LeBron James, who had just passed Bryant on the NBA's all-time scoring list to take over the No. 3 spot.

"Continuing to move the game forward @KingJames," Kobe wrote Saturday night. "Much respect my brother 💪🏾 #33644"

James wrote publicly about his friend's death Monday night, even while he said: "I'm Not Ready." On Instagram, said he last heard Bryant's voice Sunday morning before heading back to L.A. from Philadelphia, where he surpassed Bryant's 33,643 career points.

"I promise you I'll continue your legacy man! You mean so much to us all here especially #LakerNation💜💛"
