Vanessa Bryant honors Kobe and Gigi 4 years after their deaths

LOS ANGELES - On Friday, Vanessa Bryant honored Kobe and Gianna Bryant in a simple, but touching post on social media.

The widow of the Laker legend paid tribute to her late husband and the couple's late teen daughter a little before 9 p.m. with a simple caption that featured two red heart emojis.

Kobe and Gianna "Gigi" Bryant were killed in a helicopter crash, along with seven others, four years ago today.
