For Kiefer Ravena, the late Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant is his childhood hero.

The NLEX Road Warriors guard gave honor to Kobe on the upcoming “Mamba Week” on Instagram by uploading a throwback picture of him and Kobe.

“Be better today than yesterday. Then, repeat. That’s the Mamba Mentality,” said Ravena.

“You taught me how to approach the game with the utmost respect. Respect towards your opponents by playing 100%. Respect towards my craft by working the hardest and respect for the game by never wanting to lose. I carry this with me on and off the court and it helped me become not only a better player but also a better person.”
