“I just wanna say thank you to Vanessa Bryant and the Bryant family…” -UConn guard, Diarra

The NCAAB tournament is in full swing and the defending champion UConn Huskies are getting a very special gift from Kobe Bryant’s wife. Vanessa Bryant gifted UConn Kobe 8 Protros as part of the Mamba Program from Nike last year and she decided to surprise them once again.

The team was given the “Italian Camo” Kobe 6 Protros, which aren’t even out yet.

I just wanna say thank you to Vanessa Bryant and the Bryant family. We appreciate you,” UConn guard Hassan Diarra said, via TMZ Sports. “We’re gonna show out in the NCAA tournament!

This is a pretty awesome gift to give these basketball players

Can the Huskies Go All the Way Again?

Notably, the Huskies also got free Kobes last year and ended up winning the tournament. They’re a No. 1 seed this year in the March Madness bracket and are still alive. Perhaps getting the free Kobe sneaker is exactly what they need to give them the juice to win again.

You might be asking why Kobe’s family is giving out free shoes to a school he didn’t go to. Well, Kobe was always a fan of their basketball program and so was his daughter Gianna. They attended a number of their games together.

UConn also has an excellent women’s basketball program and there’s a possibility that Gianna would’ve played there if it weren’t for her untimely passing. It’s nice to see Vanessa Bryant keeping that connection between UConn and the family.

I know I’d be pretty damn excited if I got a free pair of Kobes when I was playing basketball. It’s really hard to win back-to-back championships in any sport so maybe this will give them the extra bit of motivation. Kobe was known for winning back-to-back championships multiple times in his NBA career so UConn winning it all would be a great way to honor the late legend.
