Donovan Mitchell honors Kobe and Gianna Bryant with custom shoes

As much of the world on Tuesday remembered and honored late NBA legend Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna on the first anniversary of their deaths, Utah Jazz All-Star Donovan Mitchell found a unique way to do so.

During the Jazz’s game against the New York Knicks at Vivint Arena, Mitchell wore a pair of custom shoes, one each with the Bryants’ respective jersey numbers on them.

The white sneakers had one No. 24 in purple with a yellow background to honor Kobe Bryant’s time with the Los Angeles Lakers, and the other shoe had a white No. 2 with a black background representing the jersey Gianna Bryant wore for the Mambas, the team she played for and the one her father coached at the time of their deaths.
