Yesterday would have marked the 42nd birthday of Deceased Kobe Bryant had it been he is alive
His first birthday since he died, alongside his daughter, Gianna, and seven others, who were killed in a helicopter crash on Jan. 26.
Bryant’s birthday comes on the eve of Kobe Bryant Day, which the LA City Council created in 2016 to commemorate him on the date made up of his two jersey numbers.
This year, Nike announced that it will pay tribute to Bryant, during “Mamba Week,” which runs from Aug. 23-29. Additionally, when the Lakers meet the Trail Blazers Monday for Game 4 of their series, Los Angeles will wear their special “Black Mamba” uniforms to honor Bryant
On Sunday, countless figures and sports fans from around the world remembered the all-time great.
Some of the twitter tribute are laid out below;
And the list goes on. RIP Kobe Bryant. (The black Mamba)
