Caitlin Clark quotes Kobe Bryant’s iconic line after eliminating rivals LSU in Elite Eight round – FirstSportz

The Iowa Hawkeyes earned an incredible victory against the USC Trojans to advance to the Final Four in March Madness. As expected, the Hawkeyes star Caitlin Clark led the team to a sweet victory. After the game, an excited Clark referenced an NBA legend to highlight her goal that was more important to her than qualifying for the Final Four.

In the win, Caitlin Clark posted a double-double of 41 points with 12 assists and seven assists. In the post-match interview, the 22-year-old spoke about winning in a difficult region after the team’s hard work. To conclude his interview, the star referred to the NBA veteran, the deceased Kobe Bryant.

To get back here is really hard. This region was loaded with so much talent but job’s not finished.

Caitlin Clark said

Bryant made that statement in 2009, when the Los Angeles Lakers won the first two games of the NBA Finals. Realizing the star’s seriousness, a reporter asked Bryant why he was so dissatisfied despite the team’s lead. The Lakers legend, known for his competitive mentality, gave a simple answer.

What’s there to be happy about? Job’s not finished. Job finished? I don’t think so. 

The late Kobe Bryant had said

Certainly, for Clark, the work is not done as the team is now qualified for the semi-finals. When Clark announced that this would be his last year in college, the star was certainly aiming to win the national championship so he could end his college career with victory.

Caitlin Clark shares a deep connection with Kobe Bryant

This is not the first time Clark has expressed his love for Kobe Bryant through his actions. After the Hawkeyes won the Big Ten Tournament last month, Clark channeled his inner Bryant by recreating his iconic 2001 championship photo. The star posed just like Bryant with his championship trophy with the Lakers.

Clark has also shown his admiration for Bryant by wearing his signature shoes on the basketball court. Especially when the star breaks important records in his career. On the day Clark broke the NCAA all-time scoring record, the athlete was seen wearing Kobe 5 “Bruce Lee” editions. Clark wore the same shoe when he defeated the LSU Trojans to qualify for the NCAA semifinals.

To add to Clark’s collection, last week, Bryant’s wife, Venessa, surprised the Iowa team by gifting them a pair of Venice Beach ‘Kobe 8’ cleats for their Sweet 16 matchup. After all these ties and honorary gestures from Clark to Bryant, it seems safe to say that the player admires the star and wants to follow in his footsteps.
