*As the whole world celebrates Kobe Bryant‘s birthday today, Sunday August 23 and Monday August 24 being declared Kobe Bryant day, the 6-man music, producing, songwriting and performing collective known as Full Force has just released a new version of their song & video entitled “Love Of A Hero (Kobe Changed The Game Remix)” dedicated to one of their heroes, Kobe Bryant.
Orange County supervisors in California where Kobe lived & resided with his family voted unanimously on Tuesday August 12 to dedicate the day of August 24th to the 18-time All-Star with a Kobe Bryant Day Tribute.
The date was chosen for the two jersey numbers Bryant wore during his 20-year career with the Lakers: No. 8 and 24. It’s also a day after his birthday. He would have been 42 this year.
Kobe Bryant was the basketball legend that inspired so many young men & women to pursue their dreams & never give up.
“The most important thing is to try and inspire people so that they can be great in whatever they want to do,” Kobe was quoted as saying.
Nike also announced it will honor Bryant with “Mamba Week” beginning Aug. 23. It will include product launches and programming. According to sources, it will be the first time Nike sells Bryant’s shoes or jerseys since his passing.
So many donations are being made to the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation, amplifying Kobe’s message through the Mamba League and extending Kobe’s legacy of inspiration and innovation.
Bryant won five NBA championships with the Lakers until his retirement in 2016. Both jerseys have been retired. Happy Birthday Kobe and also Happy Kobe Bryant day. Full Force Loves You!
