After of the emotional presentation, Vanessa Bryant received a supportive embrace from another NBA legend as they were pictured together on the court.
Vanessa, 39, dressed in an all-black ensemble, was seen smiling as Michael, 59, approached her and the pair engaged in friendly conversation together.
