All thanks to Kyrie Irving, the Brooklyn Nets were able to honor Gianna Bryant on her 15th birthday.

“Uncle Drew” actually gifted each of his Nets teammates with the “Mambacita” hoodie.

“Mambacita” is recent clothing line launched in honor of Gigi, and 100% of the proceeds will go straight to Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation.

Kyrie has considered the late NBA legend Kobe Bryant as his mentor, friend, and inspiration. It is no surprise that the one-time NBA champion paid tribute to Kobe’s daughter as well.

Kobe and Gigi, along with seven other people, were tragically killed in an helicopter crash January last year.

Irving made sure that the memories of Kobe and Gigi will live in everyone’s hearts forever, and this recent gesture only proved that to be true.
