The world lost some heroes on Sunday and as people around the world come to grips with the tragedy, we remember their lives and the legacy they left behind.

The day of the crash, Kobe was with his daughter and her team “the Mambas” in a tournament that was set to continue through today. Though he and Gianna were unable to finish, pictures of their moments together was captured on camera and posted just moments before the news struck. It will be immortalized forever.

The last video of Gigi by her mom Vanessa was, fittingly, of her on the court getting some shots up in heels after a dance.

Gianna embodied the “Mamba mentality” almost as much as her father. She was a student of the game and a hard-worker.

In their final hours, their focus was on the game and they were clearly doing something they loved. Our thoughts and prayers are with Vanessa and the rest of the family.
