The late Lakers legend Kobe Bryant left us a little more than three years ago, he has been gone but not forgotten, as his memory is still with all of us. Two days ago would've been his 45th birthday and yesterday was Mamba Day.

Today, at the FIBA World Cup, the fans who got to see the game between Jordan and Greece got to see a great performance by Rondae Hollis Jefferson who channeled his best Kobe moves.

Fans noticed that Jefferson was moving like a left-handed Kobe, and even the FIBA Basketball World Cup official Twitter account noticed the similitude of the moves as they attached a video of Jefferson with the cap "Kobe must be watching this, smiling."

The Lakers and Kobe fans immediately got emotional and let it known on social media, as Bryant is still missed to this day as he has kept inspiring athletes and people all over the world.
