Last night Gianna Bryant’s school honored her by retiring her jersey. Number 2 is the number she wore when she was on the court. When she was not at the Mamba academy with her dad she was playing with her middle school team. She was full of smiles and made everyone happy, according to her team mates and coaches. Gianna tragically passed away with her father along with 7 others in a helicopter crash on Sunday January 26. She was the second out four kids of Kobe and Vanessa. She was only 13 when she passed. She is loved among the Laker community along with her father, and they are both deeply missed.
