As we count down to Mamba Day on 4.13.16, Nike unveiled it’s Mamba Day Generator, which allows you to create a graphic using your photo and 1 word to describe how much you love or hate Kobe Bryant. They also unveiled a new video with over 34 athletes talking about Bryant and saying what 1 word they would use. Fearless, obsessive, winner, respected, unpredictable, genius were a few examples but KD had the best one: a$$hole! A word former teammate Steve Nash would agree with.
Back in 2014, during the making of the documentary ‘Kobe Bryant: Muse’, director Gothan Chopra asked every interviewee to describe Bryant in 3 words. Nash said “Mother Fucking Asshole” and according to Chopra, Kobe thought that was awesome.
