Needless to say, fans absolutely loved it.

Vanessa has been a rock for the entire Bryant family since Kobe Bryant’s tragic passing at the beginning of this year.

Back on Jan. 26, Kobe, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, baseball coach John Altobelli, five other passengers, and the pilot died in a helicopter accident. Everyone on board was killed on impact.

Kobe’s death rocked the entire sports world, with the 2019-2020 champion Los Angeles Lakers ultimately dedicating their season to the franchise legend.

They honored him all year with a “KB” patch on their jerseys and even had an alternate “Black Mamba” uniform set which they wore several times throughout the postseason.

Following the team’s title win last week, Vanessa came out and publicly acknowledged how much she wished her husband had been around to see it.

“Congratulations Uncle P! Congratulations @lakers Kobe was right, RP! Stay the course – blockout the noise. Go Lakers! Wish Kobe and Gigi were here to see this,” she wrote.

Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka, or “Uncle P” as Vanessa referred to him in that post, was one of Kobe’s closest friends and served as his agent during his playing days.

Kobe’s influence was instrumental in Pelinka landing his role, and obviously it paid dividends for all parties involved.

Vanessa also showcased a remarkable tattoo she got, showing the names Kobe, Vanessa, Natalia, Gianna, Bianka and Capri inked along the outside of her right foot.

Vanessa was and continues to be mainstay in the lives of all Lakers fans, if for no other reason than what a family the entire fanhood is.

Because of that, when TikTok videos like this week’s go viral, it is a joy and celebration for everyone to see.

After everything the Bryant family has been through, they deserve all the relief, positivity and happiness in the world. Here is to hoping they get it.
