On January 26th, 2020, Kobe Bryant died in a fatal and tragic helicopter crash. For a figure so powerful and beloved, it was a shock to the world when he passed so suddenly.

Now, a year later, the NBA community is looking back to reflect on Kobe's legacy, his death, and his final moments on earth.

On Monday, one tweet went viral that featured Bryant's last public message -- a nod to LeBron James.

The comments were filled with grieving fans...

It's only fitting that Kobe's final tweet be one of positivity and love towards a fellow ballplayer.

Bryant had an enormous impact on those who watched him. Whether it was his "killer" mentality, insane work ethic, or wise words about life, he was a guy who inspired greatness and who seemed to always have the right thing to say.

And as the world looks back on his life, and tragic death, it's his amazing legacy that will be on the hearts and minds of everyone who cared about him.
