A picture of Capri Bryant, the 4-year-old daughter of the deceased Kobe Bryant, went trending after she was photographed glaring sternly toward the Atlanta Braves dugout during the latest MLB match. The picture was captured during a game between the Atlanta Braves and the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
Her mother, Vanessa Bryant, shared a picture of the 4-year-old on Instagram, donning a white Nike t-shirt, with her hair styled as a pin-up afro. Her look was stern, so much so that netizens claimed she got that look from Mamba himself. Kobe’s fans are cognizant of how intimidating his stares are, and they wonder whether it is in their blood.

A fan said on X, “Nah man WNBA better watch out in the future because that’s that 81 look”, indicating her rigid gaze.
Some people on social media interpreted Capri’s look as a sign of disdain. On the other hand, there were even solicits for WNBA players to be vigilant of their facial expressions when competing against the Dodgers. Others said it was silly of them to point it out in such way, claiming that Capri’s look was simply a reaction to the game and that it was inappropriate to read too much into it.
Kobe Bryant made history by scoring 81 points against Toronto Raptors
On January 22, 2006, Kobe Bryant stunned the basketball nation by scoring an incredible 81 points against the Toronto Raptors. No other competitor wasn’t even within sight of breaking the milestone since that time.
The Los Angeles Lakers, who had a 21-20 record at the time of the game, were still striving to make the NBA playoffs.

The starting lineup for the game included Kobe Bryant, Lamar Odom, Smush Paker, Kwame Brown, and Chris Mihm. Devin Green, Devean George, Luke Walton, Sasha Vujacic, and Brian Cook rounded up around the bench. The Toronto Raptors pitted a youthful Chris Bosh on the other end of the court alongside Mike James, Matt Bonner, Morris Peterson, and Jalen Rose, who was entrusted with defending the Black Mamba.
Bryant scored 14 points in the first quarter as the Lakers were trailing by seven. Although he scored 12 additional points in the second quarter, the Lakers were nevertheless down by 14 points at halftime.
Bryant began to heat up in the second half. He kindled up and ignited the Toronto Raptors with 27 points and provided the Lakers the upper hand, heading into the final frame.
Kobe, however, was far from wrapping it up. The match picked up steam in the fourth quarter as Bryant scored 28 more points to seal the victory and solidify his position in NBA history.
Being the only viably offensive option for the team, Kobe Bryant’s concerns were with rendering his team funcional during the course of the season than he was with the record.
