Earlier this year, the entire world was united in sorrow over the loss of former NBA star, Kobe Bryant. Kobe perished in a tragic helicopter accident, along with his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna.
Yesterday, the WNBA held it's 2020/2021 draft. Out of respect for Kobe, Gianna, and the entire Bryant family, Gianna was made an honorary draft pick.
Her mother Vanessa was incredibly moved and wanted to say thank you to the entire league, as well as Kobe's fans and supporters.
