The “Black Mamba” is Kobe Bryant’s nickname. Kobe Bryant played with the Los Angeles Lakers as a shooting guard for his entire 20-year career and died last year in a helicopter crash. His fans would wear a Mamba sweatshirt understanding from whence the term originated.
Mamba memorabilia is worn mostly by fans of basketball, but because this is clothing, anyone is likely to be wearing a sweatshirt, t-shirt or hoody with those words printed on it. The sweatshirt expands its use from daily wear in the summer and spring to outdoor wear in colder temperatures.
The sweatshirt is made in small, medium, large, extra-large, XX-Large up to XXX-large sizes normally. For tall men, the size range may include larger sizes. These sweatshirts are also sold in kids and infant’s sizes, thus making it possible for parents to share their enthusiasm for Kobe Bryant with their offspring, keeping his appreciation alive through the ages.
