Happy Mamba Day to all the Kobe Bryant fans around metro Detroit. As we all know, the legendary Kobe Bryant, his lovely daughter Gianna “Gigi” Bryant and a few other passengers from their travel basketball team tragically passed away during a helicopter crash last year on January 20, 2020. Today we celebrate the legacy of one the best basketball players to ever play the game of basketball. Detroit Pistons announcer and 105.9 Kiss morning host John Mason gave Kobe Bryant one of the most amazing and exhilarating introductions during Kobe Bryant’s final season in the NBA and what ultimately became his last time in Detroit. Mason also payed tribute to Bryant after his passing, with a heartfelt video detailing some of his most memorable moments with Bryant when he came to Detroit to play the Pistons.
