Instagram adds message to Kobe Bryant’s IG page

Instagram has added “remembering” to Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant’s account.

Bryant tragically passed away in a helicopter crash earlier this year.

Bryant is the greatest player in Lakers franchise history and arguably the second-best shooting guard of all-time behind only his idol, Michael Jordan.

The Black Mamba averaged 25.0 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.7 assists in 1,346 regular-season games with the Purple and Gold, the only team Kobe ever played for during his Hall of Fame career.

An 18-time All-Star, Bryant won five titles with the Lakers, as well as two Finals MVPs and the 2008 regular-season MVP. He’s also fourth on the NBA’s all-time scoring list with 33,643 points.

The Lakers retired both of Bryant’s numbers last season (8, 24). There will never be another Kobe Bryant, not in Los Angeles or in the NBA.

Kobe’s tragic death is still on the minds of everyone in the NBA community. Current LA stars LeBron James and Anthony Davis are motivated to win the 2020 championship for Kobe and Gigi — Bryant’s daughter who also passed away in the crash.

LeBron, Davis and the Lakers arrived at Walt Disney World on Thursday, with the “bubble” games set to start on July 30. Davis wore a Kobe and Gigi shirt.

It would be special if the Lakers win the 2020 title in Orlando, Florida. We’ll see if LeBron and Davis can bring home banner No. 17.
