Vanessa Bryant Reacts to Anthony Davis Paying Tribute to Kobe After Game-Winner
September 21, 2020
Vanessa Bryant took notice of Anthony Davis and his tribute for her husband, Lakers legend Kobe Bryant. It was a brilliant hit, and it was actually a game-saver for the Los Angeles Lakers. Davis’ team would have lost the game if it wasn’t for this buzzer-beater. The most impressive part about it was the moment when Davis turned to his bench and shouted “Kobe!”
Vanessa took to his Instagram account to share a video of Davis’ shot against the Nuggets. She was moved by the tribute and pretty much every Lakers fan would feels the same.
The Los Angeles Lakers have yet to lose a match while playing in the Mamba jerseys. They are paying an incredible tribute to the Black Mamba. Davis made sure everyone becomes aware of his motivation. The Lakers big man doesn’t want to lose a game while wearing the tribute jersey.
“People talk about, never been in this moment, pressure, am I ready for it? I want to take those shots. It’s part of the legacy. I want those shots. I want the big-time plays,” Davis said after the win. “This is what they brought me here for — to make big-time plays.”
Vanessa Bryant and Lakers fans supported Anthony Davis
Davis hit 22 points in the second half and nine in the fourth quarter to give the Lakers a lead. The Lakers got Davis for this particular season. They wanted to see him in the postseason.
Lakers head coach Frank Vogel liked Davis’ shot, and he even compared him to Kobe.
“That’s a shot Kobe Bryant would hit,” Vogel said after the match. “A.D. coming off, flying to the wing-like that, a catch-and-shoot with the game on the line in the biggest moment of our season, nothing but net. That’s a Mamba shot.”
Nuggets superstar Nikola Jokic was brilliant during the game, but he couldn’t stop Davis. Dwight Howard and JaVale McGee really liked this. Guarding Davis is a tough job, and Jokic struggled despite his great performance.
The Lakers can finish the season with two similar wins. Davis better keep those Mamba shots pouring.
