“One of the last things he said to me was, ‘You gotta see Gianna play basketball,’” Jay-Z said.
The 13-year-old was a rising star in youth basketball. Her dream was to one day play for UConn’s storied women’s team and then go on to play in the WNBA.
“The look on his face, I looked at him and said, ‘oh, she’s going to be the best female basketball player in the world’” Jay-Z said.
“He was just so proud.”
A public memorial is currently being scheduled for Bryant and Gianna.
Finalized details are expected to be announced at some point in the next few weeks.
