According to PEOPLE, Vanessa recently visited a basketball court dedicated to Kobe and their daughter Gianna and unveiled a stunning Mural depicting the late father-daughter duo. In a social media post, Vanessa also explained why she chose to help open a court dedicated to her late family members. “I chose this location so that young people in this community may have a safe space to play with equal opportunity which was important to Kobe and Gianna,” she mentioned and continued, “We are grateful to the City of Philadelphia, @muralarts for welcoming this project and helping to make it a reality.”
For the unversed, Kobe Bryant passed away in a tragic helicopter crash in California in January 2020 along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others. At that time, Gianna was just months away from her 14th birthday.
