The world lost a legend on January 26, 2020, but 5x NBA Champion, Kobe Bryant, will not soon be forgotten, and gaming giant, NBA2K is doing its part to make sure of it.

NBA2K named Kobe Bryant the cover athlete with a special Mamba Forever Edition.

The official Twitter page for NBA2K posted the cover with the caption:

[8] Relentless.  Driven. A true competitor.  We celebrate Kobe Bryant as our Cover Athlete for the Current Gen Mamba Forever Edition #NBA2K21

Other fans offered their sentiments of excitement on Twitter as well.

Earlier this year (April 2020), the gaming company released a video tweeted a special Pink Diamond Kobe locker code for users of the game stating that his legacy lives on in 2k.

For many gamers, the ‘Mamba Forever Edition’ covers are a huge deal, while for other fans the honor of placing Kobe Bryant on the cover of the NBA2K1 game is enough to celebrate.
