The annual award, named after Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna (nicknamed Gigi), is bestowed upon individuals "who use their time, talent, and platform to raise awareness for the WNBA, and women's and girls' basketball in various ways," as Kobe did prior to his death in 2020. The WNBA and Vanessa Bryant presented Paul the award at the 2022 NBA All-Star Game on Feb. 20.
