The Black Mamba strikes again! This time, in business.
Back in March of 2014, Kobe invested $6 million in BodyArmor, a sports drink company that is marketed as a healthier alternative to Gatorade. That $6 million bought Kobe 10% stake in the company. This week, Coca-Cola bought a minority share in BodyArmor, a move that shot Kobe’s stake in the company to an estimated $200 million.
That is another win for Kobe this year. His first win was an Oscar for his short animated film “Dear Basketball.”
Kobe retired in 2016 with a record $680 million in career earnings, according to Frobes‘ Kurt Badenhausen.
