On January 26th we lost a special human being. Mamba Mentality is a lifestyle and shall live on. The players after Kobe who idolize him, respect the sacredness of the game, and work on the fundamentals will be following in Kobe’s footsteps. He was a man who woke up at 3:45am for workouts, and he worked out three times a day. He played hurt, never afraid of anything or anyone.

February 24th I have an essay that will be published on what I think the NBA can do to honor Kobe's legacy.
