TRIBUTE

KOBE BRYANT/NIKE IMAGES

HAPPY BIRTHDAY …42 WOULD HAVE BEEN A GREAT YEAR FOR YOU. DAMN, WE MISS KOBE!

Nike has released a new ad featuring Kendrick Lamar celebrating the life and legend of Kobe Bryant. The former L.A. Laker star died along with his daughter, Gianna, as well as John, Keri and Alyssa AltobelLi, Sarah and Payton Chester, Christina Mauser, and Ara Zobayan.

In the newly released tribute to the life and spirit of Bryant, Lamar urges all of us to follow the NBA icon’s lead and strive to be better each day.

“Better leader, better generation, better nation,” Lamar continues. “Just be better. Can you do that? … Better me, better you, better us.”

Lamar’s quote was taken from an article written by FNR Tigg for Complex, published online.

The simplicity of the message is as beautiful as Bryant’s effervescent smile. Be better. Not better than this person or that person–just be better at being you, today, than you were yesterday. Give just a little bit more each day.

Be better.
