I’m still in shocked in the recent passing of Kobe Bryant. I admired his skill as an opponent when he played basketball for the Los Angeles Lakers. It took me time to give him the respect he deserved. It was at the end of his career, it’s when I learned more about his “Mamba Mentality”. That preseveriance and competive mindset that drove him to be the best and continuing to make your self better. When I saw his animated short he collaborated with animation legend Glen Keane, it made me think there’s more of what Kobe can offer to us, off the court. Unforuntely those gifts are now gone. My thoughts go out to his family and friends.
