Since Kobe and his daughter Gigi's passing, teammates, fans, and friends have been paying homage to the lakers legend in their own way.
But when the moving stories about his dedication towards his four daughters make headlines, nothing tops that.
Here are some moments that depict he was a proud and loving father who will always be remembered.
Bryant showed up for games, practices and coached his daughter Gianna in basketball, dismissing fans who believed he needed a son to pass on his legacy to.
Kobe didn't just call his daughter his "princesses" but treated them like one too. He published a book called "Legacy and the Queen" which was about a tennis player who uses her athletic skills to save an orphanage. And it was inspired by his daughters.
One of the biggest reasons behind Kobe's retirement was spending more time with family. And it is safe to say, Kobe was making the most of it. On his 40th birthday, he surprised them with a Cabo trip and was posting pictures with them and their entire vacation.
Bryant's Instagram account closely documented his relationship with his family. From throwback videos to wishing them on occasions, Kobe never stopped gushing over them with affectionate messages.
Bryant went above and beyond to make his girls happy and be involved in their lives, even if it took wearing Halloween costumes with them. The Bryant family once dressed up as characters from the "Wizard of Oz".
