Vanessa Bryant is hurting badly. In matter of a few hours of seeing her husband Kobe Bryant and daughter Gianna Bryant, she would learn neither of them would come home ever again after a tragic helicopter accident.
The father-daughter duo were two of nine people who died in the crash.
Now, Vanessa is paying tribute to her husband and daughter on her Instagram, where she changed her Instagram profile picture to a picture of the Los Angeles Lakers legend and their daughter.
In the photo, Gigi can be seen looking up at her father as they share an embrace.
Gigi shared her dad’s passion for basketball and played for the Mamba Academy team. Kobe was the coach of the team and was believed to be traveling to Mamba Academy in Thousand Oaks at the time of the crash.
Kobe actually stated during an interview as to why he took helicopters everywhere.
“Traffic started getting really, really bad,” Kobe said during the interview for The Corp With A-Rod and Big Cat. “I was sitting in traffic and I wound up missing like a school play because I was sitting in traffic.”
The NTSB is still investigating the cause of the wreck.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
