Remembering Kobe & Gigi: A Tribute to Kobe Bryant – Girl Dad

The entire world was shocked with Sunday’s news. Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven others died in a helicopter crash in southern California. Since then we’ve heard so many stories about how important being a father was to Kobe. One man got an up close look at Kobe the dad. His name is Russ Davis and he’s the head coach of the women’s basketball team at Vanguard University. Kobe often held practice for his daughter’s team at the Vanguard facility. We talked with Coach Davis about his relationship with Kobe and what he learned from him as a man, coach and father.

Thank you for joining me for the Positively Dad journey! My name is James Shaw and I'm a husband and father. I live in the Tampa Bay area with my wife, Terri and our young daughter, Naomi. The goal with Positively Dad for us to think, learn and grow. It's easy to get caught up in the day to day and miss opportunities to become amazing fathers. I trust that the conversations we have on Positively Dad will help you see that fatherhood is truly a journey and that we are better together than figuring it all out on our own.
