Iconic Moments

Shake Shaq
Kobe  Bryant most iconic moment, the American number 24 from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States
Their quarrels started the day that these men started playing for the Lakers. Shaq was a mildly established player whilst the Black Mamba was drafted out of high school. He was a confident young boy whose antics were misconstrued for arrogance. (Image: imgur.com)

Feudal Lords

It was a clear case of who was better of the two. It got to a point where it was unhealthy for everyone, especially the team. It was partly why 'the Shaq' was shipped away to Miami. Had these two kept their differences aside and not run their mouths, they could have achieved a lot more together. (Image: imgur.com)

Unlike Anything

January 22nd, 2006. This was the day that the Staples Center witnessed one of the most enthralling performances by their favorite son, ever. Second, only to Wilt Chamberlain in the all-time list, his 81 points game blitzed the Raptors to smithereens. A generation of fans jumped on the Lakers bandwagon right then. (Image: imgur.com)

Hey Grandma, This is For You!

If you're going to invite your grandmother to one of your games, you best be incredible. This was the only game his nan watched live, and he made sure he put up the performance of his life for her. The Lakers came back from behind to win the game, and it was an incredible display from the legend. (Image: imgur.com)

Cheating on Vanessa

The year 2003 was one of the lowest points in this legend's career. A few months after the birth of his firstborn, he was accused of sexual assault. Though he denied the charge, the Black Mamba did mention that he had an affair with the woman in question. (Image: imgur.com)

Lost Her Sheen?

Vanessa was his high school sweetheart. He wooed her with all his heart and went against his parent's wishes to marry her. It looks like he had a lapse in judgment when he cheated on her. He managed to convince her again, and Vanessa put everything behind her and worked on the marriage before tragedy struck. (Image: imgur.com)

Laker for Life

We now know that he was drafted into the Lakers team right from high school. Did you know that he was a one-team man? Yes, he was a Laker for life. His career with the Los Angeles team spanned two decades, and it was a glittery one, to say the least. (Image: imgur.com)

LA's Hero

He played 1346 games in total for the LA Lakers between 1996 and 2016. His PPG over those years was 25.0. The man also won the NBA title 5 times, was the MVP in the Finals twice, and an 18 time NBA All-Star. He scored 33,643 points in total for them, and that's why they've retired his number 8 and 24 jerseys. A legend for the ages. (Image: imgur.com)

Ominous Start

We knew 2020 was off to a shitty start when we heard about the crash. It was the 26th of January in 2020 when news broke about a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California. One of the passengers was the Black Mamba. He was accompanied by his 13-year-old daughter and a few others. (Image: imgur.com)

Adios Mamba

We were praying that there were survivors, but it wasn't to be. Everyone on board that helicopter was killed. It's such a shame to lose a life to a tragedy like this. We don't know what caused the crash, and we never will. All we can say is 'Thank You' Champ. (Image: imgur.com)
