Happy Birthday Kobe Bryant. Today would have been Kobe’s 42nd birthday, by now everyone knows that we tragically lost Kobe, his daughter Gianna, and six others in a helicopter crash back in January. Today we celebrate one of the greatest to ever pick up a basketball. This article isn’t going to be a long one, there is not much to say that hasn’t already been said. Kobe’s resume speaks for itself, it still doesn’t feel real that he isn’t alive today. Everyone will mourn, but don’t forget to appreciate what he gave to the game of basketball. Fittingly, tomorrow is 8/24, Mamba day. Happy birthday Kobe Bryant.
