The Bryants' night to remember was shared on social media for multiple reasons; one being the bittersweetness of Kobe Bryant's absence. The late Los Angeles Laker presented the "Ready For It" singer with a "championship banner" for reportedly selling out the most shows at the Staples Center, per a tweet from Sports Center. Secondly, who could resist the cuteness?

An interview clip featuring Bryant discussing Swift also made the rounds on X (formerly Twitter).

"I do," Bryant said. "I think it's important to listen to people who do great things. You know, so it's not genre-specific."

"Taylor has been on top of the game for a very, very long time," Bryant continued. "How and why? How does she write? How does she get into that mental space to be able to create things over and over and over? I mean, it's a lot of pressure for her to follow up a number one album then follow with a better album," he went on.

"I don't care if you like her music or if you don't like her music, look at what she's doing. It's frightening," he joked. "It's unbelievable to be able to pull that off over and over. So I look at things like that and try to learn from them as much as I can," he said.

"She was a sweetheart to my girls before she grew up and became 'Taylor Swift,'' Bryant added. "So that's why like, if she needs anything I'm always there. But you can't have that level of consistent success and not be a killer. It's impossible, impossible," Bryant concluded.

Kimora Lee Simmons commented on Natalia's Instagram carousel, writing "The cutest Nani!???"

"I love you so much! ❤️," Vanessa commented.

"i’m sobbing ???? magical," a fan commented.

Kobe Bryant and his young daughter, Gianna, were killed in a car crash in early 2020.
