    The Kobe Bryant I knew

    I remember the moment as if it happened yesterday. We were in the hallways of what was then the Delta Center in Salt Lake City. Bryant and I approached each other, arms cocked for a shake and hug. Then I felt a big hand on my shoulder, pulling me back.

    “Wait, that’s my guy,” Bryant said, breaking from his escorts.

    As a burly security guard slammed me into a wall, Bryant was whisked away, like a politician rescued from an assassin. He called back, “Come talk to me.”

    I did, but by then I had decided I was done with the NBA. Writing about its players had become tantamount to covering the Beatles, and I didn’t like it. I had started with the league before David Stern and Michael Jordan, and I was happy to be one of the few in on an intimate cult classic.

    That scene in Salt Lake was the first thing I remembered after the shock started wearing off from the news of Bryant’s death, along with his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, in a helicopter crash on Sunday. (Seven others also died.) Trying to make sense of such a senseless loss, it was obvious, from the grieving masses in downtown Los Angeles to the parade of weeping basketball superstars, that I was not alone. We lose famous and important people every day, but Bryant’s passing landed, almost universally, as few do. He had won five NBA titles and an Oscar, invested in tech and storytelling, spoke four languages and coached girls basketball. He was an extraordinary version of the smartest and coolest person most of us knew.

    We have a complicated relationship with athletes and other celebrities. We worship them as cultural deities, yet allow ourselves to believe we’re closer to them than we ever are. We also receive their tweets and proclamations, and infer intention. There’s a subtle racist tinge to it all — we buy their gear (or tickets to watch them) and believe we own them, at least in part.

    But we don’t know them, not the way we actually knew Kobe Bryant, a dynamo who was so present among us. He wanted so desperately to be like Mike, but missed the mark, at least in terms of personality. Jordan had an aloofness — cold Air to Bryant’s hot. I spent a week with Jordan, early in his career, and once had a moment — talking about our daughters, alone in the Chicago Bulls locker room; he signed a poster to my oldest, Sassia — but I never really knew him, not the way I got to know Bryant, as fleeting as it was.

    I first fell under Bryant’s spell in 1998, while writing an occasional series about Air Apparents during what was supposed to be Jordan’s last NBA season (he returned after two seasons to play for the Washington Wizards). Bryant was 19, going on 35. Just two years out of high school, he was so learned, curious and quick-witted. When I told him I played hoops in his signature Nikes, he asked me how I liked them. I said whatever plastic was used in the shoe made them smell so bad, I stored them in my garage.

    Without skipping a beat, Bryant asked, “You ever try changing your socks?”

    We slapped hands and popped fingers, but he had me at, “How do you like them?”

    Thinking I might be Latinx, the multilingual Bryant once dropped some Spanish on me. When I told him I was Japanese, he said, “konnichi wa,” like a native. I told him I’d be more impressed if he didn’t misspeak his first name. It was derived from the beef of Japanese cows massaged with sake and is pronounced “Ko-beh.”

    “That’s because I’m not a piece of meat,” he explained with that V-shaped smile of his.

    Bryant later told me that he’d purchased his first home, in Pacific Palisades, an upscale neighborhood between the Pacific Ocean and Santa Monica Mountains. Explaining that I’d been to Gary Payton’s palatial estate in Blackhawk, outside Oakland, I asked Bryant if I could see his. He demurred, then relented, making me swear to never disclose his address or write about the place. I agreed.

    His Mediterranean-style abode was something out of the Beverly Hillbillies, complete with tennis court and cee-ment pond (aka, swimming pool). “Is it too much?” Bryant, then 20, asked, with utmost sincerity.

    I found those moments more remarkable than Bryant’s otherworldly athleticism or his good-as-Laker-gold fadeaway jump shot. They convinced me that there were prodigies in this world, people who didn’t just have potential for greatness, but were destined for it. I saw it years later in the prep-hoops-playing Ogwumike sisters, just outside of Houston. Like Bryant, they were sharp, engaging and driven. I addressed the younger one, Chiney, as “Madame President,” and now she’s a Stanford graduate, a Los Angeles Spark, and full-time basketball analyst at ESPN. Her older sister, Nneka, also is a Stanford grad, LA Spark and, as president of the players union, helped negotiate the WNBA’s historic collective-bargaining agreement.

    Bryant, you just knew, was going to bring the house down. He was going to out-work and out-analyze everybody. He was open with his ambition. He was out there with his life, in a way few larger-than-life personalities are. He was not, however, infallible. He was accused of sexually assaulting a 19-year-old woman at a Colorado resort in 2003. The case was unresolved because the woman was unwilling to testify. Bryant maintained that he was wrongly accused, that he believed the encounter to be consensual, and had to admit to committing adultery against his wife Vanessa.

    For a long while, I found the incident difficult to reconcile with the young man I’d known, as well as the grown man he’d become. It seemed to harden Bryant, and eventually led to the much ballyhooed “Mamba mentality,” particularly on the basketball court. He was more calculated and cutthroat. But he later softened. He doted on his daughters in public, became an ambassador for the women’s game, college and professional. Years before, he had recalled that I had daughters of my own and asked what it was like to be away from them so much, in the pursuit of basketball. It was bittersweet agony, I’d told him. He liked that answer, which, then and now, made me feel true proximity to the most human brand of greatness — accessible and imperfect — I’d ever witnessed.

    Prior to his untimely death in a 2020 helicopter crash, Kobe Bryant packed a lot into his 41 years. He had a simply breathtaking basketball career that has left him a legend in the NBA. It’s clear that the legacy he left behind will be used to inspire and instruct for years to come. The passion and dedication he brought to the game was wrapped up in a public persona he meticulously presented to the world, and that careful curation of his image was right in line with the career Kobe Bryant would have pursued if he hadn’t ended up in the NBA. 

    Kobe Bryant carefully crafted the Black Mamba persona 

    Bryant wasn’t just a basketball player; he was a brand in and of himself, and that was by design. He carefully crafted a public persona known as the “Black Mamba,” a physical presence that was associated with his specific philosophy toward not just the game, but life itself. 

    As Entertainment Tonight reports, Bryant crafted a “mamba mentality” that he shared on public speaking tours, where he worked to inspire youth to follow in his footsteps of passion and determination. “To sum up what mamba mentality is, it means to be able to constantly try to be the best version of yourself,” Bryant explained.

    He embodied these elements in his own mastery of basketball, with teammates frequently reporting that Bryant spent time between games — and even between halves of the same game — studying his own moves and plotting out improvements. He approached the sport with a methodical focus on becoming the best. 

    Kobe Bryant planned on pursuing this creative career if the NBA didn’t become a reality

    It’s hard to imagine Bryant having done anything other than end up in the NBA, but the talented star certainly didn’t take the rare path for granted. His backup plan was rooted in his appreciation for storytelling and branding. 

    As ESPN reports, Bryant had planned to go into marketing and advertising if the professional athlete path hadn’t panned out. As it was, Bryant still found ways to weave this interest into his career. “I wrote 90 percent of my own commercials,” the athlete once explained. The careful control over his image and brand shows through in this work. 

    Investing in BodyArmor let Kobe Bryant explore branding work

    Kobe Bryant attends the 90th Annual Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon.

    Bryant took his talents with him beyond the basketball court. Prior to his death, he had retired from the game, and we got a glimpse into how he had planned to work his marketing and storytelling interests into his post-NBA future. 

    As Forbes explains, Bryant set up Kobe Inc., and he used it to invest millions into the sports drink BodyArmor. Bryant poured more than cash into the company — he had a vision for its marketing as well. “I really enjoy framing the story of a brand which is what I have done with Nike for years with my product,” Bryant explained as he connected his past marketing experience with his future goals. 

    That wasn’t the only area where Bryant got to bring a story to life. He had a book series in the works, and one of his installments — which he worked on in a collaboration with author Wesley King — came out posthumously. As NBC News reports, Bryant’s widow, Vanessa Bryant, helped promote the book across social media. The Wizenard: Season One is a “supernatural young adult novel that follows Reggie, a basketball player hoping to become the best,” and his battle against mysterious forces trying to hold him back. 

    It’s clear that Bryant had ambitions that stretched well beyond his accomplishments on the court. Had he lived longer, we likely would have seen even more of them come forward.

    Performance Review Nike Mamba Focus, MALES BELI KOBE LAGI!!!

    Nike Mamba Focus

    Profile of the Nike Mamba Focus

    Similar to LeBron James’s Soldiers and Kyrie Irving’s Flytraps, Kobe Bryant’s Mamba series gives die-hard fans a chance to own a Kobe basketball shoe at a much affordable price.

    In 2019, Nike continues Bryant’s budget-friendly line with the launch of the Mamba Focus. These Kobe Bryant basketball shoes emulate the Black Mamba’s metamorphosis and allow you to recreate the Black Mamba’s signature moves on the court.

    The Mamba Focus’ embossed upper provides control and stability. The shoe’s low-profile outsole is designed to keep you close to the hardwood to optimize your ability to step back, create some separation, and elevate (one of Bryant’s most devastating moves on the court).


    Cushion. The Mamba Focus is designed to provide increased energy return as you give it your all on the court.

    These low-top Nike basketball shoes are equipped with a Phylon midsole with a forefoot Zoom Air unit. This cushioning setup provides responsive reaction and cushions against hard landings.

    Traction. The Nike Mamba Focus boasts a Mamba-inspired traction pattern that allows the wearer to move quickly in any direction. The low-profile outsole also helps you maintain a good feel for the court.


    Length and Width. Testers claim that the Nike Mamba Focus runs narrow at the forefoot. Wide-footers are advised to try the shoes in-store first if possible.

    Lockdown. The Mamba Focus features a lace-up closure that provides a locked-in fit. An external heel cage and molded Swoosh-shaped framework provide lightweight support and containment.


    Like the Nike Kobe 6, the Nike Mamba Focus has an embossed, snakeskin-like upper that optimizes stability and containment.


    The Mamba Focus features a low-top design that offers lightweight support without restricting ankle movement.

    The Nike Mamba Focus emulates a snake’s metamorphosis. The embossed upper is an ode to Bryant shedding his skin to become the lethal Black Mamba on the hardwood.  TPU eyelets shaped like snake eyes complete the Mamba-inspired theme.

    Special Colorways of the Nike Mamba Focus

    The budget-friendly Kobe basketball shoes are available in the following color options:

    • Black/Anthracite/White
    • Black/Black/Anthracite/Opti Yellow
    • Black/Dark Grey/White/Black
    • University Red/Anthracite/Black/White
    • White/Gum Light Brown/Black

    Nike Mamba Focus ‘Big Stage’

    In 2010, Nike basketball commemorated Kobe Bryant’s last Finals appearance by releasing a set of Kobe 5s dubbed the ‘Big Stage.’ In 2019, the colorway makes a splash in the Mamba Focus.

    The Nike Mamba Focus ‘Big Stage’ features a white upper with gold accents. A translucent outsole completes the shoe’s NBA Finals-inspired look.

    Nike Mamba Focus

    The Mamba Focus is Kobe Bryant's latest budget model. Unfortunately, the performance is disappointing overall. The traction starts off really bad and gets slightly better over time, but you never get the hard stops you want. The cushioning in the heel is very hard, and the bottom-loaded Zoom unit in the forefoot gives you only a very minimal bounce. The materials feel cheap in-hand but get the job done. A large outrigger and sturdy heel counter provide good support and lockdown. Even at the affordable retail price of $100, this shoe is still underwhelming overall and not recommended by sneaker critics.

    Kobe Bryant’s New Nike Zoom Mamba Focus Basketball Shoe Is Here

    Continuing a line of Kobe’s budget-friendly Mamba sneakers, the Swoosh is ready to usher in the new Focus model for a reasonable $100 USD MSRP. Much like LeBron’s Soldier series and Kyrie’s Flytraps, the Mambas give die-hard Bryant fans a chance to own a sneaker ripe with Kobe design language at a much more affordable cost. Equipped with an embossed upper, the Focus is meant to emulate a snake’s metamorphosis while its low-profile construction keeps the wearer close to the court in an effort to highlight the 5-time champs signature step back and bouncy elevation. Fans of the new look will have their choice between a simple black and white color scheme as well as a slightly more boisterous array of white, light gum brown, and black. Grab a detailed look at the new Mamba Focus ahead and tell us if you will be grabbing a pair from Nike.com today.
