Back in May, a video Kobe Bryant posted of his 11-year-old daughter Gianna went viral.

During the NBA playoffs, Black Mamba put a video of “Lil’ Mamba” replicating her dad’s famous turnaround jumper and the world went nuts.

Happy Birthday to this lil lady. My Gigi!! #lilmamba #tesoro #11

There’s a lot to take in here.

Her form is pretty identical to Kobe’s and, you know, she’s only 11! Not to mention he’s got playoff film on in the background – probably breaking it down since he became the guy everyone wanted to be critiqued by last season.

Gianna’s love of hoops doesn’t end in the Bryant’s home gym.

Black Mamba is a huge supporter of the WNBA and Gianna is often seen with him at L.A. Sparks games.

Kobe even talked about her love of basketball in a commercial he shot showing support of the women’s pro league.

Looks like Kobe IS with her when she’s shooting in the gym! Flip to Page 2 to see Mambacita back in action!
