The death of one of the greatest NBA stars the world has ever seen is sending shockwaves throughout. Kobe Bryant wasn't just one of the best basketball players to have ever lived. He was so much more than that. One of culture and class, representing the NBA in the best way an ambassador could.
His philanthropy and willingness to give back to help others defined the man, not simply his athletic accolades. Just hours before his untimely and heartbreaking death, Bryant posted his last contribution to Instagram, something that was wholeheartedly emblematic of the type of human being he was.
