As the city of Los Angeles winds down after celebrating its first annual ‘Kobe Bryant Day’, Lakers fans were left reminiscing abut their all-time favorite moments from The Black Mamba. From his 81-point game, to hitting both free-throws with a ruptured achilles, and of course, the 60-point finale, Kobe provided countless memories for the purple and gold the past 20 years.
While there have been plenty of gifted scorers in the NBA, Kobe will mostly be remembered for his fierce competitiveness and an opponent’s worst nightmare.
Now that his playing days are over, it seems opposing defenders will no longer be the only one’s in danger of being on the receiving end of a Kobe ‘death stare’ after the five-time champ caught a fan recording him at dinner with his family.
Since retiring last April, Kobe has hardly stayed out of the limelight thanks to a number of events that made the effort to honor the future Hall of Famer.
In addition to the recently celebrated ‘Kobe Bryant Day’ Kobe has received a number of awards from the likes of the ESPYs and the NBPA. He has also stayed busy in his new area of focus, as he recently started a venture capital fund.
None of that has taken away from the now infamous glare however, so a bit of advice if you’re fortunate enough to spot Kobe out in public, don’t record him while he’s with his family.
