11 Murals Paying Tribute To Gianna And Kobe Bryant Around L.A.

By Secret Los Angeles May 2, 2020

The late NBA legend’s daughter Gianna “Gigi” Bryant” would have turned 14 on May 1. These are the beautiful murals around L.A. that pay tribute to a life that was taken too soon.

It’s been a little over three months since Kobe, Gigi Bryant and seven others lost their lives in a helicopter crash in Los Angeles. The rising basketball star would have been just 14 years old as of May 1. While the NBA legend mostly kept his family life private, Bryant started coaching Gigi’s AAU girls’ basketball team during his retirement. This put her, and the passion she shared with her father, into the spotlight.

Gigi had dreamed of playing college hoops at UConn before declaring for the WNBA draft. Sadly, she never got to see those lifelong dreams came to fruition. Last month, Kobe and Gigi were honored for the sport they loved with the Oscar-winning star elected into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2020, and Gigi being selected as an honorary draft pick in the WNBA draft.

However, beyond the basketball community, there have been numerous tributes to the pair. Here are murals that honor Gigi and Kobe around Los Angeles.
