Since Kobe Bryant‘s retirement following the 2015-16 NBA season with the Los Angeles Lakers, he has thrived in his post-basketball career with Kobe Inc. and Granity Studios.

Along with Bryant’s successful businesses, he is still involved with the sport by working out with current players while coaching his second daughter’s basketball team.
