Less than two weeks after the death of NBA super star Kobe Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter, and seven others, Sports Illustrated has announced it will pay tribute to the future hall of famer.

Sports Illustrated announced Tuesday that it will publish a 100-page special tribute to Bryant, which will be available Friday.

Bryant was killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas on Jan. 26.

In addition to Bryant, 41, and his daughter, 13, the crash claimed the lives of Payton Chester, 13; Sarah Chester, 45; Alyssa Altobelli, 14; Keri Altobelli, 46; John Altobelli, 56; Christina Mauser, 38; and the helicopter's pilot, Ara Zobayan, 50.

The special issue will cost $15.99.
