Video Of Kobe Bryant Watching Basketball With Daughter Resurfaces After Tragic Deaths
A heartfelt court-side video of Kobe Bryant and his teenage daughter Gianna has resurfaced just hours after news of their sudden deaths broke.
Video of the father and daughter bonding over their shared love of the game was first shared to ESPN's Twitter account in December.
In the clip, the pair huddle together, both smiling as Bryant breaks down part of the match between the Brooklyn Nets and Atlanta Hawks.
Bryant and Gianna, "Gigi", died on Monday morning when the helicopter they were in crashed over Calabasas, California.
They were on their way to basketball practice at the Mamba Sports Academy, where Gianna was scheduled to play in a tournament.
The New York Post reports Bryant had coached Gianna’s Amateur Athletic Union basketball team at the facility for the last two years.
The 13-year-old basketball prodigy looked set to follow in her famous father's footsteps.
Bryant appeared on Jimmy Kimmel's Saturday Night Live last year and told the host that his daughter plans to carry on his legacy, hopefully in the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA).
The NBA legend was just 41 and is survived by wife Vanessa and daughters, Natalia, Bianca, and newborn Capri.
