ANOTHER BOUT OF SELF-ISOLATION

The Bryant women have been on self-isolation for months now following the tragic deaths of Kobe and Gianna. There were only a handful of instances they were spotted out, and it's often in celebration of the lives of their late loved ones. 

Kobe and Gianna tragically died in a helicopter crash in January, which also took the lives of seven others. Since then, the family and the world mourned the loss of one of NBA's greatest players and his prodigy.
