In Memory Of Kobe Bryant (1978-2020)

The world was rocked on January 26th, 2020 when NBA legend Kobe Bryant, along with his 13-year-old daughter and several other people, were killed in a helicopter crash in California. During his glittering career ‘Black Mamba’ racked up five world titles and countless other accolades, but beyond that he joined an elite list of men who have transcended a sport to become a cultural icon across the globe. You may not have known a thing about basketball, but you would have known who Kobe Bryant was. He became a hero to millions, was a major inspiration to many of the current generation of NBA stars and will undoubtedly be an icon to future generations too. Bryant’s impact on the sport will never be forgotten.
