Professional athletes honor Gigi Bryant’s legacy with ‘Mambacita’ apparel


The Mambacita game is strong.

In honor of Gianna Bryant’s 15th birthday, Vanessa Bryant teamed up with DANNIJO, a female-owned clothing company, to feature a “Mambacita” clothing line. One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the line go to the Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation, which is “dedicated to creating positive impact for underserved athletes and young women in sports.” In less than a day, all of the apparel was sold out.

Many pro athletes were able to snag some gear while it was still on the shelves.

Former U.S. women’s national team goalkeeper Hope Solo wrote on Instagram that “honoring [Gigi’s] legacy of competitiveness and kindness is forever.”

Jewell Loyd, guard for the Seattle Storm and founder of the Gold Mamba Army, posted a photo reminding everyone of what the “Mamba Mentality” entails.

Newly minted Chicago Sky forward and TNT analyst Candace Parker rocked Kobe 1 shoes along with the full fit.

Two-time FIFA World Player of the Year and USWNT star Carli Lloyd donned the hoodie and the sweatpants.

Anthony Davis and the Los Angeles Lakers also sported the apparel heading into their game on May 2.

Meanwhile, Kyrie Irving bought the gear for his entire Brooklyn Nets team. File that under things you love to see.

According to Vanessa Bryant, Devin Booker bought gear for both the Phoenix Suns and the Mercury.

Steph Curry talked about carrying on Gigi’s legacy “in her honor” in a press conference on her birthday.

“I was honored, and I know our whole team was, to be a part of celebrating her,” the Golden State Warriors star said.
