Instead of the usual photo of NBA player Kobe Bryant and a farewell message, Jackie Forster’s farewell message to the basketball legend was more personal because of Kobe’s influence in her life. Kobe, who is also called the “Black Mamba,” already ended his 20-year basketball stint and played his last game today April 14. In his last game he scored 60 points which made his team, LA Lakers win over Utah Jazz with the final score of 101-96.
To honor the Mamba Day, Jackie posted a photo of her and Benjie Paras’ son Kobe on Instagram.

“I was pregnant with my second son the year they announced you would be drafted for the NBA. Just wanted to say thank you for all the years of entertainment and phenomenal success. Your skill and work ethic gained you the adoration of millions and your legacy lives on in children all over that have been named after you (just as I did) and have the heart for the game, just like you. 

Praying for your next chapter [Kobe Bryant],” Jackie wrote.
