Vanessa Bryant shared photos and videos of two new basketball courts constructed in honor of her late husband Kobe and daughter Gianna in Philadelphia.

The 40-year-old uploaded them on her Instagram page Tuesday after attending the opening of the basketball courts in Tustin playground, located in the former Los Angeles Lakers star's hometown of Philadelphia. The courts were constructed by Nancy Lieberman's Dream Courts charity organization and Vanessa's Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation.

"I chose this location so that young people in this community may have a safe space to play with equal opportunity which was important to Kobe and Gianna," Vanessa captioned her post. "We are grateful to the City of Philadelphia, @muralarts for welcoming this project and helping to make it a reality."

An ESPN reporter shared a video and wrote, "Vanessa Bryant's Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation and @NancyLieberman's @NLCharities donated 2 full courts in Philly today — honoring Kobe & Gigi's legacy with a safe space for kids to play."

One video shared by the former model showed a basketball trainer demonstrating some neat tricks as kids practice basketball. In another photo, Vanessa posed before a mural of Gianna, along with Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation Executive Director Kat Conlon, and wrote, "Thank you so much for everything you do for our @mambamambacitasports foundation!!"

Another mural also featured Kobe and Gianna's jersey numbers – 24 and 2 – while the courts were painted with the Laker's signature purple and yellow colors. Kobe and Gianna's names were featured at the center and it was surrounded by a butterfly design.

Vanessa's daughters – 19-year-old Natalia, 5-year-old Bianka and 2-year-old Capri – were also present at the unveiling function. Kobe's sister Sharia Washington also attended the event.

Kobe and Gianna died on Jan. 26, 2020, in a helicopter crash, which also killed seven others.

In April, Vanessa celebrated what would have been her and Kobe's 21st wedding anniversary. The mother of four uploaded a throwback photo of her and the NBA legend and wrote, "I love you forever, baby. Happy Anniversary @kobebryant #21."

The couple got married on April 18, 2001, two years after they started dating.

The unveiling of the courts came at a significant time in the history of the Lakers. Tuesday marked the 11th anniversary of the Lakers' 2009 NBA Finals victory, which was also Kobe's fourth championship with the franchise.
