The LA Lakers are the new NBA champions. After the tragic death of Kobe Bryant and daughter Gigi, the team dedicated the season to their memory. Vanessa Bryant took to social media and posted a photo of Kobe Bryant and Rob Pelinka. Rob was a very close friend of Kobe as well as VP of Operations of the Lakers.
She captioned the photo, Go Lakers. Congratulations Uncle P. Kobe was right, RP. ‘Stay the course-block out the noise.’ Wish Kobe and Gigi were here to see this. In a post game interview Rob Pelinka said there were times in the middle of the night in his hotel room while in the bubble he would hear Kobe’s voice telling him, stay the course, finish the task.
