Kobe Bryant‘s sudden and tragic death left the whole world in tears. One could never fathom how tough it has been for his family to deal with the immeasurable loss. The Lakers legend passed away in the 2020 Calabasas helicopter crash along with his 13 year old daughter Gianna.

Vanessa Bryant has constantly made efforts to remember the player’s legacy and has fought relentless battles to retain the integrity of her family. Her struggles have not been unnoticed and it seems as though her late husband is looking out for her from heaven.

Although wealth can never compensate for the loss, Bryant’s family made $400 Million on November 1 2021 from Kobe’s 2014 investment in the sport’s drink BodyArmor.  Kobe purchased about 10% of the drink, valued at about $6 million. As industry giants like Coca-Cola bought BodyArmor today at 8:24 am, it is now valued at close to $8 billion.

As reported by Darren Rovell, this means that Kobe’s family will earn a profit of $400 million from his investment. Meanwhile, the NBA hall of famer earned over $320 million over his venerable career.

Kobe Bryant always had a keen interest in business and investment. You can watch the legend passionately talk about his investment strategies below.
