As a hashtag, #Mambacita has been used as far back as November 2014. But as a nickname for Kobe Bryant’s budding hoops star daughter, it’s now scoring bigly.
On Sunday, the Lakers legend posted two videos on Instagram showing him being schooled by 11-year-old Gianna, who goes by “Gigi.”
The New York Post said: “In one video, Gianna … shows off her flawless stroke as she drains a shot. In another, she beats him with a pump fake and hits a layup.”
Known as The Black Mamba, Bryant christened his middle daughter “Mambacita.”
“According to the NBA legend, today’s peek into the daddy-daughter workouts was inspired by the WNBA finals, where the Minnesota Lynx are taking on the Los Angeles Sparks for the second year in a row,” the Post said.
(But @Mambacita is available!)
