Many fans did not know much about Kobe's 13-year-old daughter Gianna, apart from the fact that she was a daddy's girl.
Gianna was actually an up and coming basketball player and Kobe was managing her basketball team.
Trending footage of her playing the game has proved just how good she was on the court, with her style of play admired by many greats.
The legendary basketballer and others in the NBA saw much of the father’s spark and determination in Gianna.
She was quick to remind people that Kobe did not need a son to continue the family's basketball legacy, as she was going to represent them.
At the time of their death, the two were heading to Mamba Sports Academy as Gianna and her teammates were scheduled to play at an amateur tournament.
They were among nine lives that were lost in the heartbreaking accident in Calabasas, California.
