On a day in which Kobe Bryant missed all but two of his first 20 shots before nailing a game-winning three-pointer, he recognized that his play probably didn’t do much to ease the tension of a particular fan of his, 105-year-old Allene Wynn.
“I don’t think this game did anything to relax her,” said Kobe, who was more than impressed with the woman whose 105th birthday came on March 27.
“I mean that’s unbelievable, 105 years old!”
When meeting Kobe before the game, Wynn apparently had some choice words for No. 24, wanting to see some better play out of her favorite team … which he loved.
“She was awesome, just like the female Tex Winter,” Bryant concluded.
