A heartwarming video of Kobe Bryant explaining the finer points of pro basketball to his daughter, Gianna, became a meme when the video surfaced on social media. Nobody knew how special that moment would truly become.
The 41-year-old and 13-year-old were court-side at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center during a Dec. 21 game between the Nets and the Atlanta Hawks.
They both would tragically lose their lives in a helicopter crash this past Sunday.
On Wednesday, the Nets honored both of them by keeping those same two seats empty for the game.
