LOS ANGELS – Today marks exactly a year since NBA legend Kobe Bryant was killed in a helicopter crash along with his daughter Gianna and seven others.
Bryant, a five-time NBA champion, played for the LA Lakers throughout his career and is considered one of the greatest players in the game’s history. He retired in April 2016 after a 20-year career with the Lakers.
His wife Vannessa, today, took to Instagram to indicate how much she misses him and Gigi.
“I miss my baby girl and Kob-Kob so much, too. I will never understand why/how this tragedy could’ve happened to such beautiful, kind and amazing human beings. It still doesn’t seem real. Kob, we did it right. Gigi, you still make mommy proud. I love you!” she wrote.
Kobe was also remembered on social media as friends, teammates, fans, the media and sports organisations posted tributes and touching messages.
