American professional basketball legend Kobe Bryant died Sunday in a helicopter crash outside Los Angeles, California. His 13-year-old daughter was also aboard and passed away.

Bryant retired in 2016 as the third-leading scorer in NBA history, finishing two decades with the Los Angeles Lakers as a prolific scorer with a sublime all-around game and a relentless competitive ethic, according to Associated Press.

Below is a static version of the interactive map that Los Angeles Times created at the time of Bryant’s retirement in 2016. The map details all 30,699 shots of his career, including the ones he made and missed during the regular season and playoffs.

Bryant finished his career as an 18-time All-Star, 15-time All-NBA team, 12-time All-NBA Defensive Team selection, two-time NBA Finals MVP, and the 2008 NBA MVP.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti released the following statement on Bryant’s death:

“Kobe Bryant was a giant who inspired, amazed, and thrilled people everywhere with his incomparable skill on the court — and awed us with his intellect and humility as a father, husband, creative genius, and ambassador for the game he loved. He will live forever in the heart of Los Angeles, and will be remembered through the ages as one of our greatest heroes. This is a moment that leaves us struggling to find words that express the magnitude of shock and sorrow we are all feeling right now, and I am keeping Kobe’s entire family in my prayers at this time of unimaginable grief.”

The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the California helicopter crash, the FAA has said in a statement.
