Gianna "GiGi" Bryant and Teammates Selected As Honorary WNBA Draft Picks



Gianna Bryant, Alyssa Altobelli, and Payton Chester were selected as honorary WNBA draft picks yesterday. The three teenagers were killed in the January helicopter crash which also killed Gianna's father Kobe Bryant and five others.

Chester's father accepted the honor for Payton, as did Altobelli's brother and sister, and Gianna's mother Vanessa.

The WNBA and Vanessa Bryant have also teamed up for the Kobe & Gigi Bryant WNBA Advocacy Award, which will recognize an individual or group who has made significant contributions to the visibility, perception and advancement of women’s and girls’ basketball. The WNBA and the Bryant family will announce the inaugural recipient during the 2021 NBA All-Star game in Indianapolis.
