This mural cites a Kobe quote, saying heroes come and go, but legends are forever. This is very symbolic on the effect that Kobe had on the game of basketball, and the world. Every kid when trying to throw something like a basketball shot, whether it be an important shot in an actual basketball game, or a piece of paper into a garbage can, grew up yelling “Kobe” as they threw up their shot. We all knew that Kobe was one of the most legendary basketball players and people to ever exist. The outpouring of sadness and support for the Bryant family after his tragic accident showed how much of an effect he had on the world, and it shows that like he said, legends are forever. He will have an impact on our world for generations.
