Vanessa Bryant narrated a touching tribute to her daughter Gianna for her 16th birthday.
In partnership with Nike, the 60-second video is modeled after Kobe Bryant’s Oscar-winning animated film Dear Basketball, with narration provided by Vanessa.
In honor of Gianna’s birthday, Nike also released the “Mambacita Sweet 16” Kobe 6 with all proceeds going towards the Mamba and Mambacita Foundation, which aims to create a “positive impact for underserved athletes and boys & girls in sports.”
The “Mambacita Sweet 16” Kobe 6 is now the first release under Nike’s new contract with the Bryant Estate.
Celebrating what would have been Gigi’s 16th birthday, its packaging includes a personal note from Vanessa Bryant.
