Since Kobe Bryant‘s retirement following the 2015-16 NBA season with the Los Angeles Lakers, he has thrived in his post-basketball career with Kobe Inc. and Granity Studios.

Along with Bryant’s successful businesses, he is still involved with the sport by working out with current players while coaching his second daughter’s basketball team.

Bryant quickly clarified his controversial post, via Twitter:

Over the past day, there have been heated debates about these comments. As some are trying to twist Bryant’s message, he supports the youth playing different sports and revealed he followed the team’s lead by not smiling.

When it comes to youth sports, one controversy has been about participation trophies. One can make a case for either side, but Bryant’s team was not happy about finishing in fourth place and are working every day to change that.
