CALABASAS, CA (ABC News) — Kobe Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, had a passion for basketball and was hoping to follow in NBA legend’s footsteps before the two died in a helicopter crash on Sunday.

Bryant, 41, wasn’t a frequent social media user, but his Instagram page was full of footage of Gianna on the court.

One of his last posts featured an image of the teenager taking a jump shot on the hardwood while wearing a dress and stilettos. He captioned the photo “#HoopsAndHeels #StealsAndStilettos.”

The five-time NBA champion once shared a video of the two playing a game of one-on-one. Bryant was barefoot and playing defense and Gianna was energetic and scoring on her dad.

“A lil one on one with my baby Gigi #footwork #stringmusic #mambacita,” the NBA player wrote in the video caption back in 2017.
