Kyrie Irving stepped up for the Cleveland Cavaliers in the clutch moment and made history for the organisation by securing their first title.
The point guard dropped the winning shot at the Oracle Arena as the Cavs completed a 3-1 comeback against the Golden State Warriors to write his name into Wine and Gold history.
Irving previously told the media how one of the first things he did after the game was speak to Kobe Bryant, a player he has looked up to and idolised since a very young age.
Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue, who spent three years with Kobe as a player, was the man who gave Irving the impetus to step up in the big moment.
Bryant was a man who was never afraid to take the big shot - even if he missed, Kobe would be back the next night to do it all over again.
Lue said: "I told him [Irving], 'You want to have a Kobe mentality?'" Lue recalled to Bleacher Report. "'Kobe didn't give a f--k. He don't care. Whatever the outside is saying, he don't care. Kobe's going to be Kobe.'"
If that's the mentality Kyrie takes, it's going to be amazing to watch the Cavs moving forward.
