Life comes at you fast, and what would of been Kobe Bryant’s 43rd birthday was taken from us after the late legend passed during a helicopter ride.
Tributes to the 2021 hall-of-famer poured in on all waves of social media including from friends, teammates, and widow Vanessa Bryant.
Kobe spent 20 years in Los Angeles and witnessed countless triumphs and struggles, but never stopped fighting. Kobe amounted everything wished in an NBA career: From MVP, to 18 All-Star appearances, to 5 coveted championships — more than Shaq as he would say. The extensive work spent in the gym practicing was worth it after all.
Happy Birthday to the Black Mamba, Hall-of-Famer, Girl Dad, and Storyteller.
