Two years to the day of the tragic deaths of Kobe Bryant, his daughter and seven others.
A statue was placed at the site of the tragic crash site.
The statue was created by sculptor Dan Medina and showed Kobe, in his Lakers uniform and with his arm around Gianna, who is also wearing a uniform while holding a basketball by her side. The two are looking at each other with big smiles.
The statue has the names of the Bryants and the seven other victims in the Jan. 26, 2020, helicopter crash, John Altobelli, his wife, Keri, and their daughter Alyssa; Christina Mauser; Sarah Chester and her daughter Payton; and pilot Ara Zobayan.

The helicopter carrying all eight passengers was on its way to a girls’ basketball tournament that Gianna was due to play in.
RIP Kobe and Gianna.
