We lost Kobe Bryant way too early, but he left an unforgettable influence on sports, society, and the universe.

In January 2020, the NBA icon, often remembered as “The Black Mamba,” ended up dead in a helicopter accident alongside his daughter Gianna Bryant. Bryant was a writer, businessman, trainer, and devoted father on top to being a Los Angeles Laker.

Bryant had a great and simple way with words, which he honed as diligently as he honed his basketball talents.
