- Kobe Bryant and daughter, Gianna, were fond of each other and shared a close relationship
- The two were headed to a basketball game Sunday before their ill-fated helicopter claiming their lives
- Through her life, Gianna exhibited her father’s spark and determination in the path of basketball
- Bryant often talked about how Gianna was keen to carry on his basketball legacy, and frequently attended games together
A video of basketball icon, Kobe Bryant, in deep but buzzing conversation with his daughter, Gianna Maria, has broken the internet.
The video was widely shared on social media shortly after it was confirmed the two had tragically died in a helicopter crash on Sunday, January 26.
Both Bryant and Gianna perished alongside three other occupants after the helicopter went down in Calabasas, California.
Gianna was fond of his star father and often joined him to LA Lakers games where Bryant inked his name as one of the greatest basketballers.
And the Saturday, December 21, match pitting Brooklyn Nets and the Atalanta Hawks was not any different, as the pair openly hung out serving father-daughter goals.
“Kobe and his daughter in the building, breaking down the game,” an ESPN announcer said from behind the camera during the event.
The sweet moment then captures the late NBA player speaking to Gianna while pointing and making hand motions.
In her response, the 13-year-old girl can be seen nodding in agreement with punctuated smiles.
The two were understood to be on their way to Mamba Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks for basketball practice when they met their death.
