Kobe Bryant daughter: Black Mamba 2.0?

Already known as 'Mamba Junior', Gianna 'Gigi' Bryant has showcased her hooping skills on multiple occasions in the past. Gigi seems to have inherited her father’s talent, as she is also excellent at driving to the hoop and can shoot quite well. In a recent video posted by SLAM HS HOOPS from Gigi's AAU games, she's seen shooting just like her father Kobe Bryant. The turnaround jumper is widely renowned as a Kobe Bryant move and the video suggests Gigi has learned a trick or two from her father.
