Kobe Bryant's legacy has continued to grow in the year since his death. The "Mamba Mentality" still inspires people to reach the highest level of achievement (in any field), and the Los Angeles Lakers dedicated their run to the 2020 NBA championship to Kobe and his family.
His widow, Vanessa Bryant, is dedicated to continuing the good work of his foundation and keeping the memory of her husband, her daughter Gianna and those others lost in the crash alive. Vanessa now controls Kobe's vast fortune, an estimated $600 million at the time of his death, and has become the CEO of his media company, Granity Studios.
Granity was a word Kobe created from the words "greater than infinity" and represented his reinvention as a storyteller after basketball. Kobe approached his post-playing days with the same laser-focused intensity he had on the court and was active in developing many stories for a variety of media.
Vanessa is keeping his business interests moving forward.
