NBA legend Kobe Bryant was known by which nickname?

Answer:

THE BLACK MAMBA

Fans and players alike often referred to Kobe Bryant as “The Black Mamba”. Bryant revealed that he got the idea for the nickname after watching the Quentin Tarantino film “Kill Bill”. In the movie, Black Mamba was used as a code name for a deadly assassin - known for its agility and aggressiveness. Bryant assigned himself the nickname citing a desire for his basketball skills to mimic the eponymous snake's ability to "strike with 99% accuracy at maximum speed, in rapid succession." Bryant died on January 26, 2020, in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California. Eight others, including his 13-year-old daughter Gianna Bryant, were also killed.
