The Trademark Database of the US Patent and Trademark Office shows that Kobe Bryant LLC filed on Nov. 5, 2021 trademark applications for “MAMBA VINO,” “MAMBA VINO 8,” “MAMBA VINO 24,” and “MAMBA VINO 2024” for wine. The late Kobe Bryant was known for his “Black Mamba” nickname which he said he adopted from the code name of the lead character in Quention Tarantino’s “Kill Bill” movies. “VINO” was also a nickname given to Kobe since many believed that he got better with age. On Oct. 8, 2021, the trademark “KB24” was also applied for registration by Kobe Inc. for sports and entertainment services such as websites, broadcasting platforms, podcasts, music, TV shows, movies and documentaries. In March 2021, applications for the registration of “MAMBA” and “MAMBACITA” were also filed to cover sneakers and garments. “MAMBACITA” is the nickname of Kobe’s late daughter, Gigi. (TMZ Sports)
