It still feels surreal talking about it, but Kobe Bryant is not amongst us anymore. Despite this, the 'Mamba' keeps breaking records, and now they are off the court.
Kobe was recognized as the recipient of the Los Angeles Emmy Governors Award for his "legacy of philanthropy, community building and inspiration.”

The Television Company gives this award "to an individual, company, or organization that has made an outstanding, innovative, and visionary achievement in the arts, sciences, or management of television as well as a substantial contribution to the greater Los Angeles area."
Bryant, who was nominated by Spectrum SportsNet, is in large part receiving this award due to his large support of women's basketball.
The 'Philadelphia-Born' became a legend in Southern California, after playing 20 seasons with the Lakers and winning five NBA championships.
