Previous highlight videos of Gianna also went viral because her moves are reminiscent of Kobe’s. It did not come as surprise to many because previous clips showed the NBA legend teaching her daughter his signature moves.
According to a Los Angeles Times report, Kobe has high hopes for his daughter. He revealed that his daughter wants to play for legendary coach Geno Auriemma at Connecticut, and eventually in the WNBA. Kobe recently brought his daughter in games of the Los Angeles Sparks, Phoenix Mercury, and Las Vegas Aces.
Former Lakers guard Derek Fisher, who is now coaching the LA Sparks in the WNBA, sees a lot of potential in Gianna. Fisher said that he will not be surprised if he sees Gianna playing in the WNBA several years from now.
“They have a similar demeanor and personality,” Fisher said of Gianna and Kobe. “You can tell he’s not far away.”
