What’s the story?
Besides football, many players enjoy watching and even playing different sports. In Mzansi, players often keep tabs on rugby and cricket, whether it be the Springboks or the Proteas.
However, the Sundowns star has taken a liking to a game that uses a ball with their hands, in basketball.
Vila took to his Instagram account recently where he took the time out in shooting some hoops on a basketball court. The Downs midfielder has always expressed his love for the sport and owns various items of basketball apparel.
In the images posted, Vilakazi was seen wearing a Kobe Bryant Los Angeles Lakers jersey, sporting the number 24 which is one of the most iconic numbers in basketball history.
Vila often drew inspiration from the sports icon, who tragically lost his life back in January 2020. The ex-Bidvest Wits man often praised the ‘Mamba Mentality' which Kobe stood for in never giving up in the face of adversity.
