Kobe Bryant influenced many during his time on Earth. Bryant passed away in a tragic helicopter crash earlier this year alongside his 13-year-old daughter Gianna. Although the basketball legend is gone, his spirit lives on through the countless lives he's impacted.

On Sunday, Novak Djokovic, Naomi Osaka and Billie Jean King all took part in celebrating the most valuable player, on what would have been his 42nd birthday.
