Kobe Bryant ‘s widow has shared a poignant photograph of the late basketball star following the tragic death of George Floyd.
The LA Lakers star stands on the court in his team’s signature yellow shorts and a black T-shirt, with the words ‘I can’t breathe’ printed on the front.
Vanessa took to Instagram to share the powerful image in the wake of George’s death, showing her fans that this is not a new problem that America is facing.
She captioned the picture: “My husband wore this shirt years ago and yet here we are again.#ICANTBREATHE
“Life is so fragile. Life is so unpredictable. Life is too short. Let’s share and embrace the beautiful qualities and similarities we all share as people. Drive out hate. Teach respect and love for all at home and school.
“Spread LOVE. Fight for change- register to VOTE. Do not use innocent lives lost as an excuse to loot. BE AN EXAMPLE OF THE CHANGE WE WANT TO SEE. #BLACKLIVESMATTER”
Kobe tragically died in January when his helicopter crashed in California.
The 41-year-old’s life was cut short, along with his daughter Gianna, 13, and the seven other people on board.
Vanessa is doing her best to carry on his legacy by speaking up after George’s death, something that clearly would have hit him hard.
