Kobe Bryant has been called many nicknames throughout his life. Most were washed aside, while others have stuck (Black Mamba!). This past season, following his unbelievable play at the age of 34, Bryant was given the new nickname of Vino by a fan on Twitter. The nickname stuck, mainly because Bryant liked it and made it stick.
Since then, Bryant has opened up #ClubVino, which, after this weekend, has four total members.

Manning’s induction came following a seven touchdown performance on opening night despite being 37 years old. Floyd Mayweather and Bryant have a mutual respect for each other and have often been photographed together, while Justin Timberlake is a frequenter of the Staples Center for Lakers games, often seen in the front row.
