In a tribute to the dreams of Gianna Bryant, the WNBA is paying tribute the late daughter of Kobe Bryant by making her an honorary draft pick in this year’s class, according to an Instagram post from Vanessa Bryant.

Following his retirement from the NBA, Kobe dedicated much of his time to helping Gianna, who notably took after her father’s competitive spirit and drive, realize her personal hoop dreams.
