Vanessa Bryant Renames Kobe's Charity To Honor Daughter Gianna

THE NATIONAL Basketball Association (NBA) have announced that Grammy-Award-winning recording artist and Academy Award-winning actress and Chicago native Jennifer Hudson will perform a special tribute to the late Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and their seven friends that tragically passed away on January 26.

This is such important and critical work to carry on in the memory of Kobe Bryant... and now, his late daughter Gianna Bryant, too.

Kobe leaves behind his window Vanessa and his three daughters including Bianca and Natalia, and assets worth a staggering $2 billion.

Additional special elements during TNT's NBA All-Star Game presentation will include a Los Angeles Lakers-themed tribute to Bryant within the virtual shot clock - displaying a combination of gold and purple accents at 24 seconds and eight seconds remaining on the clock during the fourth quarter, representing Bryant's jersey numbers. "Thank you for all the prayers".


The foundation announced the name change on Thursday as well, posting on Instagram that it will "further Kobe and Gianna Bryant's legacy in youth sports and beyond". "We definitely need them".

The Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation's stated mission is creating a positive impact through sports as part of the Mamba Sports Academy. "Mambacita" was Gianna's nickname; Kobe's was "The Black Mamba". "This is truly a sad day for Los Angeles, the game of basketball & the entire world".

A memorial for Kobe and Gianna will be held at the Staples Center on February 24 at 10 a.m., Vanessa wrote on Instagram. Natalie, Bianka Y Capri with Kobe, he wrote to his Instagram followers.
