Last season, a dream team lineup turned into a nightmare for the Los Angeles Lakers. No moment was worse than a career threatening injury to the face of its franchise over the last 17 years, Kobe Bryant. With less than a month remaining until the start of this season, many wonder when the Black Mamba will return from his torn achilles and if he will ever be the same player again. Only time will tell, but if there's one man who can do it, it's Kobe Bryant. Love him or hate him, everyone is waiting to see how the last chapter of his storied career will unfold.
In honor of my favorite player of all time, this mix commemorates Kobe Bryant's entire career from beginning to now, chronicling the ups and downs for one of the greatest to ever play the game.
