Kobe Bryant's influence on the game of basketball will forever be felt by anyone who ever has ever picked up a ball - past, present and future alike. The impact he made as a philanthropist, filmmaker, author and father transcends far beyond the game and again, will forever be felt by all.
On his 42nd birthday, the world took time out to honour the late, great Kobe Bryant.
