A popular nickname for Kobe Bryant, a basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers. The nickname was popularized by a Nike commercial featuring LeBron James. Since Mr. James already had a popular nickname, "King James", Nike decided to come up with their own nickname for Bryant, and thus the Black Mamba was born.
" Bryant shoots from beyond the arc....Scores!!!! A beautiful shot from the Black Mamba, and puts his Lakers up, 90-88."
