Top 8 Statue Ideas to Capture the Essence of Kobe

Everyone knows that Kobe Bryant is one of the most talented players of all time; that he is one of the hardest working players to ever set foot inside the gym; that he possesses one of the most varied offensive arsenals in league history and that he is one of the most well-rounded players ever.

However, what sets Kobe Bryant away from the rest of the pack and what puts him in the same waters as Michael Jordan, was not listed above. What makes Kobe the fantastic player that he is, is his killer instinct. The simple fact that he is capable of stabbing his opponent in the chest and not blinking, displays a quality only held by very few athletes.

Possessing that quality is what makes an athlete the best. It makes Kobe an assassin, who seeks first blood in every game he plays.

It’s difficult to capture this aspect of Kobe’s game, as doesn’t come in the form of a shot, celebration stance or really anything one would expect from a basketball player. However, Kobe being the uncanny human being that he is, has found a way to do that as well. And the face that he makes when he is in kill-mode has been personified with the scariest face in sports.
