Vanessa Bryant posts tribute on the anniversary of late husband, Kobe Bryant’s, final game as a Los Angeles Laker.
This has to have been an incredibly hard year for Vanessa Bryant, the wife of Kobe Bryant and the daughter to Gianna, both of who died in a helicopter crash in January. Now, just a few months after their passing Bryant has taken to Instagram to pay tribute again on what would have been the four-year anniversary of his final game as a Los Angeles Laker.
“My husband worked his ass off for 20 years,” Bryant wrote. “Gave it his all. All he wanted was to spend time with our girls and me to make up for lost time. He wanted to be there for every single milestone and special moment in our girls lives. He only got to enjoy 3 years and 9 months of retirement. We had 2 more daughters, he won an Oscar, he opened Granity studios, he became a 5x best selling author and coached Gianna’s basketball team in that time. She worked hard and gave her all 7 days a week just like her daddy. I wish I could back to that morning, every day. I wish they had a normal local game on 1/26. Life truly isn’t fair. This is just senseless.”
The Instagram was accompanied by a video of Kobe playing in his final game. Kobe scored 60 points on 50 shots to lead the team to a 101-96 win over the Utah Jazz.
Kobe and Gianna were killed on Jan. 26 when the helicopter they were in crashed on its way back from a travel basketball game.
