"Mamba Mentality" is a worldwide phenomenon born out of the fierce competitive drive of the late Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant. The "Black Mamba" was among the very best players in the NBA for 20 seasons, with 18 All-Star selections proving Bryant's global popularity, and his 25.0 points per game scoring average, affirming the former Lower Merion High School phenom's talent on the hardwood. Bryant claimed five NBA Finals championships-including a three-peat from the 2000 through 2002 NBA Finals-and was awarded the 2007-08 NBA Most Valuable Player award after averaging 28.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 5.4 assists per game.A posthumous inductee into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, the impact of Bryant's loss on the basketball world remains incalculable, since his tragic passing at the age of 41 in 2020.
