This could be Kobe Bryant's last picture before his sad demise
New Delhi : A young fan of Kobe Bryant is believed to have clicked one of his last pictures before he died in a helicopter crash a couple of days back.
Thirteen-year-old Brady Smigiel was playing in a tournament at the academy, where Bryant - who owned the academy - was present as well, coaching his daughter Gianna's team. When he approached the legend and asked for a photograph, he did not agree immediately as he was disturbed with the loss of game.
"Kobe gave him knuckles, and Brady said, 'he wasn't in the mood to talk because they lost'," Brady's mother, Dionne Smigiel, was quoted as saying by the New York Post.
But Brady, a huge fan of the NBA superstar, quickly clicked a selfie as Bryant walked past him.
Brady then waited for the second game to finish and waited for Kobe and his daughter to come out. When he asked Bryant for a photo for the second time, he asked Brady if he is playing in the tournament and when he responded in the affirmative, he told him that they'll get a better picture the next day.
But this can never happen now.
Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna died when the helicopter they were in slammed into a rugged hillside in thick fog in Calabasas, northwest of Los Angeles on Sunday. The crash also killed seven others.
