She quoted her husband and wrote, “Kobe was right RP! ‘Stay the course — blockout the noise.'” Pelinka is a longtime friend and agent of Kobe before he passed away.

With this, Vanessa also said that she wished that Kobe and Gigi were here to see the Lakers win the title.

Kobe and Gigi passed away last January after a tragic helicopter crash. The Lakers has also paid tribute to the NBA legend and dedicated their season to Bryant and his family.
