Vanessa Bryant Congratulates L.A. Lakers After NBA Finals 2020 Win

Vanessa Bryant is celebrating the Los Angeles Lakers on their big win!

The 38-year-old widow of Kobe Bryant took to her Instagram Story on Sunday evening (October 11) to congratulate the Lakers after defeating the Miami Heat to win the 2020 NBA Finals.

Vanessa shared an old photo of Kobe with Lakers General Manager Rob Pelinka, along with the caption, “Congratulations Uncle P! Congratulations @Lakers Kobe was right RP ‘stay the course- block out the noise’ – @kobebryant.”

She also added, “Wish Kobe and Gianna were here to see this.”

The win marks the Lakers’ 17th championship, and first since Kobe led the team to victory back in 2010.

The Lakers dedicated their season to Kobe after he died in a helicopter crash in January alongside his daughter GiGi and seven others.

Kobe played his entire 20-year career as a Lakers player, wearing jersey numbers 8 and 24.
