For people who aren’t aggregating endless Paul George trade rumors, Father’s Day is a day to spend with family. And what better way to bring a family together than watching a basketball game?
That’s exactly the mindset Kobe Bryant seemed to take for Father’s Day Sunday, showing up to a Los Angeles Sparks game to sit courtside with his two older daughters, Gianna and Natalia, a heartwarming father-daughter basket-bonding moment that the WNBA’s Twitter account was kind enough to share.

The Bryant’s also got to witness history on Sunday, as WNBA legend and lifelong Lakers fan Diana Taurasi became the WNBA’s all-time leading scorer. Bryant, the third-leading scorer in NBA history, shared what he admired most about Taurasi in a courtside interview:
