His polarizing figure defined him and made even those who did not like him at the very least respect him.

The black mamba is one of the fastest and deadliest snakes in the world. It is also the codename used by Uma Thurman's assassin character in the Quentin Tarantino film Kill Bill. And yes, Black Mamba was also the boxing nickname given to Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s uncle, Roger Mayweather. You may be thinking that Bryant probably did not want to become a part of the Mayweather family, so it must have been that Tarantino movie that got to him. Well, it turns out that Bryant did, in fact, watch Kill Bill and was so intrigued by the codename Black Mamba that he did a bit of research on the snake. Upon reading up on the mamba, Bryant decided that it was the perfect description of how he wanted his game to be. The black mamba is said to have a 99% striking accuracy at high speeds and in rapid succession. Bryant stated that it is the kind of surgical precision that he wanted in his game. Kobe Bryant was always known as a perfectionist and player who, despite being great, still strove to be the greatest. And, like the black mamba, Kobe Bryant could strike with precision and without warning. Moreover, he was big, strong, and deadly on the floor both in his prime years as well as when he was a young man. Did you enjoy this excerpt?
