NBA legend Kobe Bryant being remembered today
Kobe Bryant’s death in a helicopter crash on Jan. 26, 2020 is one of those moments people will always remember where they were when they heard the news.
Hundreds of murals have been painted in honor of Bryant, the former Los Angeles Lakers star, and Gianna, his 13-year-old daughter better known as Gigi, along with seven other people who died in a helicopter crash almost a year ago — Jan. 26, 2020.
Since Venessa Bryant lost husband Kobe and daughter Gianna in a helicopter crash on Jan. 26, 2020, her carefully curated Instagram account is a window into her difficult grieving process. There is joy in the photos and videos. There is also pain.

In her three surviving daughters Natalia, 18, Bianka, 4, and Capri, 1, the Lakers legend’s widow finds strength amid agony, every emotion laid bare on her social media.
“Grief is a messed up cluster of emotions,” Bryant posted on an Instagram story on Jan. 15. “One day you’re in the moment laughing and the next day you don’t feel like being alive.”
