Kobe Bryant’s $6 Million BodyArmor Investment Back In 2014 Is Now Valued At $400 Million

Videos by OutKick

Back in 2014, the late Kobe Bryant purchased 10 percent of sports drink BodyArmor for $6 million. This morning Coca-Cola announced an $8 billion sale that turned that investment into $400 million.

It obviously takes money to make money, but you also have to take the right risks to turn $6 million into generational wealth. Kobe was a special dude.

What’s sad is that the comment section is no longer sad for the Bryant estate — they’re now jealous and spiteful. The comment section the Boardroom’s tweet are littered with trolls whining about the contents inside BodyArmor, claiming the company is “high in sugar like Gatorade”.

If all it takes to make a successful company is sugar water, then why aren’t they doing it? They have no problem plugging their lithium battery iPhones into their walls ran by nuclear power plants, yet they clown on Kobe Bryant for taking advantage of capitalism.

Kobe Bryant should be proud of what he built. It’s just too bad he can’t be here to enjoy the fruits with his family.
