Kobe Bryant’s five-year-old daughter Bianka showed off her impressive basketball skills in a sweet video posted by her mother Vanessa on Monday.
Bianka proved she was already following the late father in the clip which saw her land across the living room with a mini basketball.
The athlete died two years ago at 41 alongside his daughter Gianna, 13, and nine others in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, when fog obscured the pilot’s view.

In the clip, Bianka looked like she was trying to get the adults to move so she had free space to make her shot.
Vanessa is then heard telling her to “focus”, but she chuckled sweetly and said, “I can’t!”
The clip was accompanied by photos of Bianka’s sisters, Natalia and Capri, with their family friend Pau Gasol and a selfie of Vanessa and Pau’s wife, Cat.
