He remains one of the biggest names ever to play basketball and he will stay at the forefront of the game for the foreseeable future.

Since calling it a day, the 18-time All-Star has been promoting his brand with multiple ventures and appearances around the world.
Just yesterday, Bryant and Jeff Stibel unveiled a $100 Million capital fund venture, and he has previously stated his desire to get into the world of film-making.
