Two words. One incredible legacy.
Love him or hate him, you have to respect what Bryant did on the basketball court. After all, it takes a pretty special player to make 18 All-Star teams, earn a league Most Valuable Player award and win five championships.
With the Black Mamba's farewell countdown nearing its conclusion, Nike is preparing to send off the legend by holding "Mamba Day" on the day of his final game. And to properly say goodbye, Nike had some of its biggest stars, regardless of sport, pay their respects to Bryant in a great video.
Nike released a teaser last week that gave fans a brief preview of the tribute. On Saturday, a longer video was posted, though it's not clear if this is the final product or if there's more to come. Either way, it's a fantastic video.
Bryant will play in his final game Wednesday night against the Utah Jazz.
