Yesterday was special moment for the Lakers & Anthony Davis after he hit the game winning shot to put them up 2-0 in the series vs. the Nuggets. What was special about that shot was what Anthony Davis said after his shot.
Kobe Bryant's influence on this Los Angeles Lakers playoff run has been evident from the start. In Game 4 of their first-round series against the Trailblazers while wearing the Black Mamba uniforms that he helped design, the Lakers jumped out to an early 24-8 lead. Those are the two uniform numbers Bryant wore for the Lakers. They racked up another win in Mamba gear against the Houston Rockets and attempted to make it 3-0 in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals against the Denver Nuggets last night.
Anthony Davis in his first playoff run as a Laker, channeled his inner Mamba and nailed the game-winning, buzzer-beating 3-pointer. Today, Vanessa Bryant shouted out Davis for shouting out her late husband after making that shot:
