Kobe Bryant had an incredible career with the Los Angeles Lakers. He decided to retire in 2016, and his post-retirement life was full of a lot of challenges. The Black Mamba was open for business, and he even got creative. Kobe wrote and produced children’s books, and they have “skyrocketed” in popularity following the helicopter crash. Three of the children’s books his publishing company Granity Studios released own the top three slots of the Children’s Middle Grade Hardcover New York Times best-seller list.
“Epoca: The Tree Of Ecrof” owns the top spot on the list. “Legacy And The Queen,” and “The Wizenard: Training Camp” hold the second and third spots.
“The Mamba Mentality: How I Play” is on the top spot on Amazon’s non-fiction list. It was released in 2018. In this book, the legend shares details of his impeccable game. He had a distinctive approach to the game, and that made him a star.
Kobe Bryant’s children’s books are amazing
In a 2018 interview with the Associated Press, the Black Mamba said that he wanted to “to combine education and inspiration and build around the concepts of what kids go through when they are playing a sport.” His books target kids between 10 and 14.
Bryant lost his life in a tragic helicopter crash. He was traveling with eight others, including his daughter Gianna. There are no survivors. The group was traveling to a basketball tournament at the Mamba Sports Academy, located in Thousand Oaks, California.
The Black Mamba spent his entire career with the Los Angeles Lakers. Although he was spending most of the time on the court, he always found time for his off-court projects. He is the author of children’s books. In 2018, the Black Mamba also won an Academy Award for his animated short movie “Dear Basketball.”
The world will always remember the great legend and his incredible talent. A lot of players have paid tribute to the legend, and it’s hard for them to understand that Kobe is gone. LeBron James delivered an emotional speech for his dear friend and also got a tattoo in his honor. Vanessa and other families will organize memorial on February 26.
