“Geese are Never Swans” will mark Bryant’s fifth young adult novel. The fourth, “The Wizenard Series: Season One,” also posthumously released in March 2020.
After his retirement from basketball, Bryant took a seamless transition in getting into the media business. The five-time NBA champion created and produced a short film entitled “Dear Basketball,” which earned Bryant an Oscar.
It has been nearly four months since Bryant’s untimely passing, but the wound still feels fresh for many hoops fans all over the world. Kobe, along with his 13-year old daughter Gianna and seven others, tragically passed away in helicopter crash on January 26 in Calabasas, California.

As evidenced by the message of the upcoming novel, the story may serve as an inspiration for athletes who may also be going through difficult times in their own personal lives. Definitely, the Mamba’s legacy will live forever.
