Lakers Fan Inspired By MambaMentality And Lost 170 Pounds Since Kobe Bryant’s Last Game

Memories were shared last night as Kobe Bryant’s jersey retirement began at Staples Center. Kobe Bryant is a top 10 player of all time and was known for his killer instinct which was dubbed as “Mamba Mentality”.

It seemed that Kobe Bryant left quite the legacy, as Lakers superfan, Chris Huerta, credits Kobe Bryant’s ‘#MambaMentality’ for inspiring and motivating him to lose 170 pounds since Kobe’s last game.

According to Huerta’s Twitter account, he began his diet the day Kobe Bryant memorably scored 60 points in his final NBA game on April 13, 2016. As Yahoo pointed out, that’s an average of 10 pounds lost per month. Huerta used Bryant’s “#MambaMentality” to stick with his program, which is clearly working.

His story has been quite motivational, as his tweet and progress is going viral. Lakers President Jeanie Buss also seemed to have taken notice.

Good job Chris, and keep up the good work!
