Former NBA Player Matt Barnes Shows Off Giant Kobe and Gianna Bryant Tattoo

None of us here in Los Angeles and around the world will ever forget that morning of January 26th, 2020 where Kobe Bryant, Gianna Bryant & the 7 others were killed in a helicopter crash. Today, Kobe's former teammate Matt Barnes paid tribute to Kobe and Gianna Bryant who would have turned 14-years-old this year by getting a tattoo.

The image that Matt has on his new tattoo (that is just getting started) is based from was a moment between Kobe and Gigi at the 2016 NBA All-Star Game in Orlando which was a moment captured on Valentine's Day.

Matt only played 2 seasons on the Lakers with Kobe (from 2010 to 2012) but they were friends and Barnes has talked openly about how much respect he had for Kobe on and off the court.
