January 26, 2121, the one-year anniversary of the passing of NBA legend Kobe Bryant — a day that’ll never be forgotten throughout the sports world.

On this day in the year of 2020, the sports world lost a legend, Kobe Bryant. Kobe “Bean” Bryant tragically lost his life along with 8 other people when his helicopter crashed into the hills of Calabasas, California, while traveling to a youth basketball game.

Kobe was an NBA Legend, he was a 5x NBA champion, 2x NBA Finals MVP, 1x MVP, 18x NBA All-Star, and he scored 33,643 career point (4th all-time). He was most known for his contributions on and off the court. For more than 20 years of Kobe Bryant’s career he was an advocate for the Make-A-Wish foundation. Throughout the 20+ years Kobe met with over 100 children and would end up inviting most of them to attend a Laker’s game. Kobe Bryant was also an ambassador for the Boys & Girls Clubs of America which is a organization which provides the programs and services that some boys and girls need to enhance their development. Kobe opened his own Mamba Sports Academy, which is used to help train thousands of young athletes. Needless to say; Kobe Bryant was a guy who was built around the “family” attitude as he was an amazing athlete and an even better guy throughout the community.

Kobe Bryant is still here with us today as many people do so much to help his name live on forever. In the month of February following the passing of Kobe Bryant, NBA Commissioner, Adam Silver renamed the NBA All-Star Game Most Valuable Player award in honor of Kobe Bryant. The award is now called the “Kobe Bryant MVP Award.” Kobe is remembered throughout the world by basically pretty much everyone, millions and millions of murals are painted in his remembrance. The Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban announced shortly after Kobe’s passing that no other Dallas Maverick’s player ever will be wearing Number 24. The number 24 is forever going to be retired in the Dallas Maverick’s organization. Mark Cuban did this to honor the late Kobe Bryant.

Kobe “Bean” Bryant will forever be remembered in the life of millions of people.
