Vanessa Bryant Writes Emotional Message On Kobe Bryant’s Mamba Day 

Vanessa Bryant Writes Emotional Message On Kobe Bryant’s Mamba Day 

Vanessa Bryant shared some words in honor of Mamba Day. Nike declares today (April 13) Mama Day, which marks the final game of his incredible NBA career four years ago.

In an Instagram post, Vanessa wrote a heartfelt message about her late husband and daughter Gianna. She spoke on how hard Kobe worked, which inspired Gigi to work just as hard. 

“My husband worked his ass off for 20 years. Gave it his all. All he wanted was to spend time with our girls and me to make up for lost time. He wanted to be there for every single milestone and special moment in our girls lives. He only got to enjoy 3 years and 9 months of retirement. We had 2 more daughters, he won an Oscar, he opened Granity studios, he became a 5x best selling author and coached Gianna’s basketball team in that time. She worked hard and gave her all 7 days a week just like her daddy. I wish I could back to that morning, every day. I wish they had a normal local game on 1/26. Life truly isn’t fair. This is just senseless.”

This year will feature 200 athletes paying tribute to the iconic NBA star by wearing black and gold Nike shoes, according to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, in a report.
