Kobe Bryant’s wife Vanessa Marie Bryant is continuing Kobe’s legacy by doing everything in her power to help those in need after his death. With a basketball court in mind, the Mamba family is doing everything possible. This surprise will also help the kids at Tustin Playground in West Philly to discover their basketball talents.

The courts are an unexpected treat for the kids. Since the event was organized as a tribute to the late Hall of Famer and his daughter Gianna.

The Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation described more details about this act and how things are going to work. The public was informed about the new surprise in a report released.
The Tustin Playground, where Kobe grew up in Philadelphia, honors the legendary Lakers player with a beautiful memorial. According to the foundation, “…Finding spaces for youth to come together in peace through the love of sports is important to the Bryant family…”

A fitting tribute to Kobe Bryant

The success of this project was due to the involvement of Nancy Lieberman Charities which is a nonprofit organization founded by the Basketball Hall of Famer. Children from underprivileged backgrounds were provided fitness, health, and educational necessities through this foundation.

“Our deepest appreciation to Vanessa Bryant, The Bryant Family, Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation, Nancy Lieberman, Nancy Lieberman Charities, and everyone who will make this project possible,” said Philadelphia Parks and Recreation officials.

As far as the making of the court goes, Lieberman’s charity stepped up to make it under the Dream Courts umbrella. The children can more easily access the court with this initiative. There is still more good news to come for the kids. According to the foundation, Vanessa Bryant’s hometown of Anaheim, California, also received a court.
