Fans today have gathered near Staples Center in Los Angeles and showed respect for the the 18-time NBA All-Star who won five championships and his daughter Gianna. Artist Louie Sloe Palsino made a mural in Los Angeles to pay a tribute to Kobe and Gianna Bryant.

“I will never understand why/how this tragedy could’ve happened to such beautiful, kind and amazing human beings,” Vanessa Bryant captioned an Instagram post of a moving note from Gianna’s best friend and continued: “It still doesn’t seem real. Kob, we did it right. Gigi, you still make mommy proud. I love you!.”
