No doubt, Kobe Bryant still lives in everyone’s hearts and Jayson Tatum makes sure that he keeps the “Mamba” legacy alive.

The Boston Celtics just got a French Bulldog and named him “Bean” — which is Kobe’s second name.

Tatum even purchased the dog in Kobe’s hometown in Philadelphis, which makes the tribute even more touching.


Tatum and Bryant may not have crossed paths in NBA, but the late Lakers legend trained the former third overall pick to become one of the league’s best young scorers today.
