🎈🙏🏽🐍 Happy Birthday Kobe! 🏆🏀👨👧
Kobe we love and miss you dearly 🙏🏽😭 Welp… started my day off shedding some tears… still makes me sad to this day that the man we so highly regarded as a basketball legend, an adopted son of Los Angeles, a dedicated girl-dad, and a global icon was taken from his family and the world in such a devastating way, with his daughter a mini-me in tow. Still praying for the repose if the soul of all those lost that day, and all the lives we lose everyday.
Kobe was larger than life, and the IDEA of KOBE and the BLACK MAMBA was even bigger. …What it means to have the heart of a champion, the relentless work ethic it takes to be the BEST at what you do, to channel that inner DAWG to overcome your opponents (or your personal demons), to lead and push the ones you love to be THEIR best…and post-career: dominating a completely different field (film: see OSCAR-winner)… and being an awesome example of mentorship and advocacy (being a girl-dad and a champion for women’s basketball/athletics)… and a symbol of greatness for the rest of the world to see… All of this and more is and was Kobe Bryant, el Vino, the Black Mamba… the GOAT. We love you, we miss you..
…. and please be a guardian angel and guide the LAKERS to their 17th championship!!! 😆🙏🏽🏆PLEEEEEASE!
