Basketball star Kobe Bryant’s death has shocked many. The 41-year-old perished in a chopper crash on Sunday together with his daughter Gianna and seven others.
The former LA Lakers player, who retired in 2016 was headed to Thousand Oaks, where Gianna was to play a basketball game scheduled for Sunday.
Kobe Bryant won five NBA championships during the two decades he played Basketball, a game he loved dearly.
He wanted his daughter Gianna to carry on his basketball legacy and he was always supportive of her dreams.
Kobe mentored and molded his daughter Gianna into a great basketballer and they always attended matches together.
In 2018, during an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, while talking about Gianna, he said,
This kid, man. I’m telling you, the best thing that happens is when we go out and fans come up to me and she’ll be standing next to me, they’ll be like, ‘You got to have a boy. You and V got to have a boy, somebody to carry on the tradition, the legacy’. She’s like, ‘oi, I got this. You don’t need no boy for that, I got this’. That’s right, yes you do. You got this.
The star has left behind wife Vanessa 37, and three daughters; daughters Natalia 17, Bianka three years and seven months old Capri Bryant.
