Hmm, the black mamba and family/friends attend the girls Matt Denning Girls Nike hoop classic at
the MD athletic center on Saturday, hung out with the MD team, gave talk, took pictures with MD players/coaches, etc., Just wondering if anyone knows how old his oldest girl is and does she play BB? If so...

He was bringing one of his club teams to watch some of the Matt Denning Classic.

His oldest Natalia is a sophomore at Sage Hill, and plays volleyball there but is not on the basketball roster. She is a 5’10” middle hitter and helped Sage to a third straight San Joaquin League title in the fall.

Both of his oldest daughters attended Sage for their entire school lives, and I believe 7th grade Gianna either still does or is being home schooled. By all accounts, she is a pretty good hooper already. Kobe is helping to coach her middle school basketball team at his newly formed sports academy (Mamba Sports Academy). He calls her “Mambacita,” says her dream is to play for UConn. There were viral videos of her working out and draining turnaround jumpers last year at 11, and more this year. She’s becoming an online sensation like LeBron’s son, and of course people are wondering where she will attend HS.

The family has always lived down the hill from Sage in Newport Coast, but it doesn’t seem likely that she’ll follow her sister there considering her hoops ability. We’ll see. She’s hung out a few times with former Mater Dei star and current UConn All American Katie Lou Samuelson. And Kobe is obviously aware of MDGBB.

Bryant also used to use Mater Dei's Meruelo Athletic Center to hold some of his annual clinics/camps, so he's very familiar with the facilities and the campus.
