This wasn’t the only romantic movie costume the late basketball legend bought for his wife of nearly 20 years. He also once surprised her with the blue dress worn by Rachel McAdams in “The Notebook” during her famous kiss in the rain with Ryan Gosling.

Vanessa recalled the thoughtful gift in January during her eulogy for her husband, who died in a helicopter crash along with their 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and seven others.

“He just thought outside the box and was so thoughtful, even while working hard to be the best athlete,” she said. “He gifted me the actual notebook and the blue dress Rachel McAdams wore in ‘The Notebook’ movie. When I asked him why he chose the blue dress, he said it was because it’s a scene when Allie comes back to Noah.”

She added that she and her husband “had hoped to grow old together like the movie” because like Allie and Noah, “we really had an amazing love story.”
