An irreparable loss, Vanessa continues to keep her husband’s legacy intact. Not so long ago, the Black Mamba was inducted into the 2020 Naismith Hall of Fame by Vanessa and Michael Jordan. It was an emotional moment for Vanessa as she celebrated Kobe’s legacy.

With Kobe Bryant’s estate and Nike parting ways, Vanessa had announced the launch of the Mambacita clothing line, whose proceeds would go to her foundation. Thus fans of the legend have something to celebrate as sports giant Nike had stopped the production of Lakers legend’s apparel.
