The late Los Angeles Lakers superstar guard Kobe Bryant’s oldest sister, Sharia Washington, has shared yet another rare photo with her beloved brother via her official Instagram account.
As you can see in the photo below, this photo was taken in a car during Kobe and his sister were going to the NBA Draft night in 1996. They were looking very happy and exciting because this night would be a turning point for the career of Kobe.
On July 1st, 1996, Charlotte Hornets draft pick Kobe Bryant was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers for Vlade Divac. 18 years later, the five-time NBA champion reminded the Hornets of that decision.
Apparently, Kobe’s sister will share more pictures of her brother because she still has been in shock due to the sad died news of her brother. This post reached more than 25k likes and her followers wrote a lot of comments.
Here’s what she captioned:
“#TBT NBA Draft weekend ‘96 🐍💜💛🙏❤️.”
An Instagram user named Dinah commented:
“Wow. Thank you for sharing him with us these past 24 years and still to this day. We are immensely grateful.”
Another user named Ariana AJ wrote this:
“Sharia, thank you so much for sharing these images with us all.”
