The relationship between Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol is something that has always been deeply meaningful to Los Angeles Lakers fans. They genuinely seemed like they loved and respected one another, and it showed in the way they treated each other on and off the court.
After Kobe’s untimely passing last year, Gasol took it particularly hard. He lost a brother.
That said, Gasol also took it upon himself to take care of Vanessa Bryant and the family.
This past Halloween, he went out of his way to make sure that Kobe’s kids had a proper celebration.
And he did something similarly special this past week, on the 20th anniversary of Kobe and Vanessa’s marriage.
Vanessa shared the thoughtful gift that Gasol sent in a special Instagram post.
The Bryant family will always be thought of as Lakers royalty, no matter how much time passes since Kobe’s untimely death.

As a result, when stuff like this week’s incredible gift from Gasol go viral, it is a cause for celebration for everyone.
After everything this strong family has been through, they deserve all the relief, positivity and happiness in the world – and it’s wonderful that they have extended family like Gasol to ensure that it comes to fruition.
