Kobe Bryant will be memorialized on the cover of TIME magazine.

It shows the basketball legend from the back, holding a ball and taking a final bow.

The photo was taken by CPI Syndication’s Michael Muller.

Bryant, 41, was killed in a helicopter crash Sunday in Calabasas, California. His 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others also died in the crash.

The magazine hits newsstands Friday.
