Vanessa Bryant is continuing to pay tribute to her late husband and daughter.

On Thursday (March 26), V took to Instagram to share a video of Kobe discussing his love of coaching their 13-year-old daughter Gianna on the basketball court.

β€œShe started out playing soccer, which is one of my favorite sports as well,” the former NBA star said in the clip. β€œBut then, when she asked about learning the game of basketball, I started teaching her piece by piece, and she started enjoying it and loving it and now she plays every day.”

β€œIt’s been a joy to watch her grow and to be there every day for that process,” Kobe continued. β€œHer temperament is a lot like mine. She’s extremely competitive, very fiery, and backs down from no challenge.” He added that Gianna is β€œa good mix of me and good mix of her mama, so that makes her even more competitive than I am.”
