Vanessa Bryant took to Instagram to congratulate the Los Angeles Lakers on winning the 2020 NBA Finals over the Miami Heat on Sunday in Game 6.
Vanessa, who tragically lost her husband, a Laker legend, Kobe Bryant and their daughter Gianna Bryant posted a heartfelt message on her Instagram story:
“Congratulations Uncle P. Congratulations @Lakers Kobe was right RP ‘stay the course- block out the noise’ – @kobebryant.” She added, “Wish Kobe and Gianna were here to see this.”
Kobe predicted that his best friend Rob would help bring the Lakers a championship within two to three years of the organization hiring him in 2017. “I guess you were right, man,” Rob told reporters during a press conference after the Lakers’ big win.
“You give me the energy to do it,” he added while looking up.
