In another post, Vanessa provided narration amid a montage of sketched pictures of her late daughter playing basketball, bonding with her father and celebrating with her teammates.

'Dear Gianna, from the first time you imagined winning a WNBA championship, I knew one thing was real - you were special,' Vanessa said in the clip. 'You came from greatness, but it was never about what you inherited. It was about what you gave to others.'

She continued: 'When someone stands up for gender equality, I see you standing up alongside them. And every time someone plays her hardest, I know that's you on the court. Love you always, basketball.'

Vanessa captioned the clip, 'Love you always! Happy Birthday, Gianna' with the hashtags, #Mambacita and #2.
