I thought about creating a thread for Gianna months ago while the pain was still fresh, for the unquestionably great basketball career she had ahead of her. With her love of the game and Pops's love for her and coaching her no doubt in a way she loved to be coached. From the youtube clips already out of her young exploits I thought it might be a fun depository to post them and maybe even compare to some all time great female players who have decent clips to compare to at similar young ages. It may sink out of sight but at least now it does exist here on Lakersball. Then the notion kind of passed. But what the heck ... especially after the WNBA honored Gigi Bryant and her teammates with this below .... this is Gianna's thread. I felt like I was getting a second go round for my fandom of Kobe's career. Was totally all over following her and rooting for her and for Kobe's involvement still in the game. https://www.yahoo.com/sports/kobe-b...elicopter-crash-vanessa-bryant-231129619.html “Thank you so much for honoring my Gigi and selecting her to be an honorary draft pick this year,” Bryant’s wife, Vanessa, said. “It would have been a dream come true for her. She worked tirelessly every single day. She wanted to be one of the greatest athletes of all time, just like her daddy. So thank you, thank you for honoring my little girl. Kobe and Gigi loved the WNBA."
