“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 night. It was the Lakers’ first NBA Finals appearance since Kobe Bryant won his fifth and final NBA title.
Bryant shared a photo of her late husband with Lakers General Manager Rob Pelinka along with the message.
“Congratulations Uncle P!” Bryant wrote. “Congratulations @lakers Kobe was right, RP! ‘Stay the course-blockout the noise.'”
The team’s win coincided with Father-Daughter Day on Sunday. Bryant remembered the daddy-daughter duo on Instagram with a throwback image of Kobe holding Gianna in his arms after the Lakers won the 2009 NBA Championship.
Her father invested in Gianna’s future, coaching her team at the Mamba Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks, California.
