Upon hearing of Kobe’s untimely death, I knew I had to pay tribute to one of the greatest athletes of all time. This Kobe Bryant Tribute piece represents the Black Mamba in his fullest. The Lakers were my favorite team when I was growing up. Even though I was never very good, I enjoyed watching the games growing up. Girly purple carpet dominated my bedroom from the previous owners. My parents let me paint my room “Laker Yellow”! Rest easy Kobe!
