(The Black Mamba, Above Left) — On the 23rd of August 1978, Kobe Bryant, a.k.a The Black Mamba was born. Kobe spent 20 seasons in the NBA showcasing his iconic playstyle which was much like the snake itself. A relentless attacker with fantastic coordination and fundamentals, Kobe had the ability to break down any defender 1 on 1 and took over games with the
best of them.
(The Object of Desire, Above Right) — The one and only object of desire, the basketball. The sleepless nights after a bad game, the summer afternoons with the squad at the park. Fans of the game are born with the desire to play, to compete and to be involved in the culture of the game.
