Vanessa Bryant, widow of NBA legend Kobe Bryant, thanked Golden State guard Clay Thompson for mentioning her husband during her acceptance speech at the ESPY Awards.
“Clay Thompson, you are inimitable. Thank you for your support and love for Kobe, my Gigi and our family. Thank you for always mentioning my Gigi when you think of Kobe. Congratulations,” Vanessa wrote on Instagram.
Thompson won the ESPY Comeback of the Year award.
“I don’t know if Vanessa is watching the ceremony, but I want to thank her and her three beautiful daughters. We think about Kobe and Gigi every day. And during my recovery, I read The Mamba Mentality every day. Those moments when I watched him play are all among my best memories. He inspired me to be who I am today,” Clay said during his speech.
