Today is Kobe Bryant’s, a.k.a Black Mamba, last ever basketball game and people around the world are paying tribute. The 38 year old NBA all star legend hangs up his trainers after 20 years of success with the LA Lakers. Many are wondering what his next move will be, with a lot of hints suggesting it will involve the business of sports. 

By way of paying tribute, we look back and the weekend he spent in our city in September 2013, where he held a Fitness Weekend here, and 2,000 people packed out American University iKnights Arena where he was a celebrity coach in a friendly match. He was given a business license by DMCC, check out the last video as to a clue of what he may do next!  Here are six memories from his trip here..
