Five NBA championship titles, 18 appearances on the NBA All-Star team, 15 drafts to the All-NBA Team, two-time MPV at the NBA Finals. Suffice to say, Kobe Bryant is a ball-playing legend, and was among the finest basketball stars in the history of both the sport, and the Los Angeles Lakers. So, it didn’t surprise us to learn about a new Kobe Bryant NFT Collection.
In total, 10,000 NFTs honoring Kobe Bryant exist and they each cost 0.08ETH. Every token is completely unique and boasts different attributes linked to Bryant’s achievements, career highs, and personality. Given he was on court for around 20 years you can understand why the late star’s NFT collection is so vast.
It’s also worth noting the series is raising funds for the sorely-missed star’s own non-profit, the Mamba & Mabacita Sports Foundation. Oh yeah, and presale is now open.
Kobe Bryant ‘KB24 NFT Collection’
When Bryant died in January 2020 it sent shockwaves across the sporting world. Suffice to say, his legacy is huge, thus it makes sense people would want to honour him in various ways.
The Kobe Bryant NFT Collection is just one way of doing that. The series takes its name from KB24, the website that once acted as a community headquarters for all things Kobe Bryant. He used the platform to sell merch, share personal and professional news, and host forums.
Sadly, four years ago the URL fell into unscrupulous hands and started redirecting people to a malicious site. Now the team behind the Kobe Bryant NFT collection recovered the site. Furthermore they plan to pay tribute to the master shooting guard. It’s a great example of reclaiming someone’s legacy on their behalf.
Kobe Bryant isn’t the only NBA name visible in the NFT world. The Utah Jazz team recently unveiled a Virtual Locker Room NFT. Meanwhile, Houston Rockets announced a new partnership with NFT platform Socios last month.
