Kobe Bryant – ‘Black Mamba’
Speaking of all time greats we have one of them right here: Kobe Bryant. Bryant actually was a teammate with Karl Malone at one point in time but that isn’t how KB24 got his nickname. The Black Mamba nickname came about due to Bryant’s ferocity when it mattered most. The Black Mamba is one of the most dangerous snakes in the world and so was Bryant to the NBA.
