Vanessa Bryant reveals Kobe Bryant keepsakes, including Lakers star’s jerseys, shoes, and jackets

Vanessa and Kobe Bryant, Lakers

Vanessa Bryant is going through some of her keepsakes of Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant.

They include jerseys, jackets and shoes.

Kobe and Gigi Bryant passed away in January in a tragic helicopter crash. The Lakers organization held a beautiful tribute for Kobe and Gigi at Staples Center where Vanessa Bryant, Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan and Lakers icon Shaquille O’Neal all gave beautiful, moving speeches.

One of the greatest—if not the best—players in Lakers franchise history, Kobe Bryant won five championships and two Finals MVPs with Los Angeles. He averaged 25.0 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game during the regular season.

Kobe also won the 2008 MVP Award and was an 18-time All-Star. He was named a Hall of Famer this year, but the ceremony won’t take place until 2021 due to COVID-19.

Along with Kobe, Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett will be enshrined as well.

Since the Hall of Fame ceremony is a ways away, it’s unclear who is going to speak for Kobe. Odds are Vanessa Bryant, Jordan or Phil Jackson could do it.

Jordan was basically like Kobe’s older brother, while Jackson won five rings with the Black Mamba on the Lakers.

It still doesn’t seem real that Kobe is no longer with us. However, basketball fans all over the world will never forget the impact he had on the sport.
