Vanessa Bryant Shares Tribute To Gigi On 17th Birthday

Vanessa Bryant continues to be a shining example of someone finding light in the dark. Last month, Bryant shared an emotional tribute to her late husband, Kobe Bryant, on what would have been the couples anniversary. Now, Bryant is celebrating another day that has to be emotional for the entire family. On Monday, Vanessa took to Instagram to celebrate what would have been her daughter Gigi’s 17th birthday. Along with a video from current basketball stars discussing the ‘Gigi Way.’

Included in the video was Pau Gasol. Gasol became close friends with Kobe during their tenure with the Lakers. The duo won two championships during their time together in Los Angeles. However, the bond created off the court is something that will last forever. Gasol has been a mainstay with the Bryant family. Even before the tragic death of the NBA legend. Now Gasol is helping us remember the legacy that Gigi still continues to have on the basketball community. Find the link for the video at the end of this story.

We dare you to #PlayGigisWay, to be competitive, joyful, and curious and never take any opportunity for granted, just like Gigi.” The sneaker is currently available on SNKRS in select markets. An incredible gesture from the sneaker titan.
