The world paused in disbelief when Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven others passed away in a helicopter crash in Calabasas on Sunday, Jan. 26.

The shocking accident stunned for many reasons — the senselessness of the tragedy, the painful loss of both parent and child, and the poignant fact that they were on their way to one of Gianna’s basketball tournaments.

Gianna, an avid player herself, shared her father’s love for the game. After retirement, Kobe evolved from dominating force on the court to torch-passing nurturer of his daughter's basketball ambitions and talent.

In honor of Gianna's birthday today — she would have been 14 years old — these are six touching moments of the late Lakers legend and his daughter.
