This time last year Kobe “The Black Mamba” Bryant, his daughter Gianna “Gigi” Bryant and 7 other passengers died in a horrific helicopter accident that sent shock waves through the whole world. Kobe was a megastar and can argued to be one of the best players in NBA history standing alongside Michael Jordan and Lebron James. He was able to create a legacy with the Los Angeles Lakers bringing them 5 championships. He was also accomplished in his post retirement just the same becoming an author, investor and basketball coach. He created Mamba Academy to help develop young basketball talent where you can find his daughter following in Dads footsteps. Becoming a star in her own right Gigi would go viral on many occasions showing that the Mamba mentality was in her DNA. The team at Seqnews sends our condolences again a year later and well wishes to the Vanessa Bryant and the rest of the Bryant Family.
