“Wish Kobe and Gigi were here to see this,” Bryant wrote on Instagram.
The Lakers beat the Miami Heat 106-93 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals Sunday evening. It was the Lakers’ first NBA Finals look since Kobe Bryant gained his fifth and closing NBA title.
Bryant shared a photograph of her late husband with Lakers General Manager Rob Pelinka together with the message.
“Congratulations Uncle P!” Bryant wrote. “Congratulations @lakers Kobe was right, RP! ‘Stay the course-blockout the noise.'”
The staff’s win coincided with Father-Daughter Day on Sunday. Bryant remembered the daddy-daughter duo on Instagram with a throwback picture of Kobe holding Gianna in his arms after the Lakers gained the 2009 NBA Championship.
Her father invested in Gianna’s future, teaching her staff on the Mamba Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks, California.
