Vanessa Bryant is looking back on some of her late husband’s legendary achievements in the NBA. Vanessa took to Instagram Saturday to share a throwback from the moment, Kobe Bryant, scored 81 points in a single game.
She posted a photo of her giving Kobe a post-game smooch, as he held onto their then 3-year-old daughter, Natalia, in honor of the major milestone. “81. ❤️❤️,” she captioned the sweet family moment.
Vanessa also took to her Instagram Story to re-post a clip from the 2006 game against the Toronto Raptors — which placed Kobe in second place for most points scored by a NBA player in a single game — a title he still holds today.
Wilt Chamberlain sits atop of that list, scoring 100 points against the New York Knicks back in 1962.
The throwback comes just days ahead of the two-year anniversary of Kobe’s tragic passing, in the NBA legend died in a helicopter crash, along with his and Vanessa’s 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and seven others.
