Gianna Maria Onore Biography
Gianna Bryant has died in a helicopter crash along with her father, Kobe Bryant. She was born in 2006 and from the USA.
After his 2016 retirement from the Los Angeles Lakers, Kobe would rarely watch NBA games, but recently, his daughter Gigi had changed that. 2019/2020 season, they’d watch NBA League Pass nearly every single night because of her love for the game. He also recently offered to take Gianna to see the Lakers.
During the game, Kobe was filmed explaining the game to Gigi as they sat courtside. He talked about how much he enjoyed watching the NBA with his daughter.
Barely a week ago, Byrant posted a video of his daughter shooting during one of The Mamba’s Academy basketball, and sources reported on her shot seeming like deja vu back in November 2019.
Kobe referred to his late daughter as “mambacita” in the caption of the clip, and it was a version of his nickname, The Black Mamba. Comments noted that Gigi’s shot looked an awful lot like the legendary father from his time in the NBA.
She had shown her father’s athletic talent from a tender age. With her father constantly present and cheering her on from the sidelines, she attracted online attention for her Mamba-like moves.
Bryant personally coached his daughter’s Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) basketball team. In an interview with USA Today Sports just a few days before he died, Kobe stated, “Coaching youth sports is so important to take very seriously because you’re helping the emotional [development] of young kids. So it’s understanding not to be overcritical and understanding that [there] are going to be mistaken.”
To say that Bryant was proud of Gigi would be an understatement. In an appearance with Jimmy Kimmel, Bryant confirmed that Gigi wanted to play in the WNBA he said.
