On January 26, 2020, something unacceptable happened to countless people-41-year-old NBA legend Kobe Bryant passed away in a helicopter crash. This sudden accident left many fans with great grief. In the minds of many fans, Kobe is an irreplaceable super idol, and his departure means the passing of a generation of youth.
Not only is Kobe one of the best scorers in the NBA and has won countless honors in his career, but he also has excellent organizational skills and oppressive defensive capabilities. Kobe said a sentence: “Have you seen Los Angeles at four in the morning?” We know that Kobe’s success is accidental not because of his talents but his love and unremitting efforts for basketball, so he can always be on the court. He was breaking new heights, bringing us incredible and admirable scores. Although there is no “black mamba” in the world, the “mamba spirit” continues to inspire us.
