Thousands of friends, family and fans paid tribute to NBA icon Kobe Bryant and his daughter, 13- year-old Gianna Bryant, who were killed with seven others in a helicopter crash. Michael Jordan and Shaquille O'Neal were among the speakers at the celebration of life at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, where Bryant spent his career playing for the Los Angeles Lakers, on February 24, 2020.
Vanessa Bryant gives an emotional remembrance of her husband and daughter. "They were funny, happy, silly, and they loved life," she said. "God knew they couldn't be on this earth without each other. He had to bring them home to heaven together." Photo by Jim Ruymen/UPI
