Watch: Lakers’ LeBron James shares heartwarming moment with Kobe Bryant’s daughters during NBA All-Star Game Kw: LeBron James

During the NBA All-Star game, LeBron James, took a moment to greet Kobe Bryant’s daughters, who were seated courtside alongside their mother Vanessa Bryant. 

This gesture demonstrated that James still holds a special place in his heart for the Bryant family.

Natalia Bryant, 19, received a warm embrace from James, and he also hugged Bianka Bella, 6, while Capri, 3, appeared shy and remained close to Natalia. Later, James took a photo with all three girls, with Capri sitting on Natalia’s lap and facing away from the camera.



Vanessa Bryant and the late Lakers star had three daughters together, including Gianna, who died at the age of 13 alongside her father.

The girls attended the event to support a close family friend and teammate Pau Gasol, who was being honored with the 2023 Kobe & Gigi Bryant WNBA Advocacy Award by their mother.

Vanessa Bryant, 40 years old and serves as the Chair of the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation, a non-profit organization that aims to make a positive impact on underprivileged athletes and promote sports among boys and girls, expressed her thoughts:

“I’m so pleased that Pau has been chosen to receive this award. Pau has done so much to promote women and girls in sports and cares deeply about spreading a message of equality, which was so important to Kobe and Gianna.” 

“We are grateful to the WNBA and Pau for continuing to honor Kobe and Gianna in this way,” she added.

LeBron James is married to Savannah James and has three children, Zhuri (8), Bryce (15), and Bronny (18). He also had a special moment with Kobe Bryant the night before the tragic helicopter crash that took the lives of Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and seven others. 

During the Lakers vs. Philadelphia 76ers game, James surpassed Bryant to claim the third spot on the NBA’s all-time scoring list, which was a significant milestone in his career.

On that fateful night, James donned a pair of commemorative shoes during the game as a tribute to the Lakers icon. A beautiful moment of this beautiful game.
