Kobe Bryant had such an impressive work ethic and mentality when it came to dominating in basketball that it was later named the “mamba mentality”. Synonymous with hard work, winning, and a never-give-up attitude, Kobe’s mamba mentality played a huge role in him becoming a 5- time NBA champion, 18-time All Star, and MVP of the league in 2008.
This motivational poster was tough to make because Kobe Bryant died in an unfortunate helicopter crash in early 2020 along with his daughter, Gianna, and 7 other people. This tragedy shocked the world; if you didn’t know who Kobe Bryant was before this happened, you do now. You could not turn on the news or open social media for weeks after the crash without immediately seeing headlines about it.
His legacy will live on though. I, and millions of people around the world will always be inspired by his mindset and his dedication to bettering himself.
“Everything negative- pressure, challenges- is all an opportunity for me to rise.”- Kobe Bryant
Rest In Peace (August 23, 1978 – January 26, 2020)
