Kobe Bryant is back on the bestseller list days after the late Los Angeles Lakers superstar was inducted into the Hall of Fame.
Bryants Granity Studios 'latest release, "The Wizenard Series: Season One," will appear at # 1 on the New York Times' medium hardcover list, released on April 19. Earlier this week, this was already the hit # 1 on Amazon's best-seller list for children's basketball books.
Bryant and daughter Gianna were under nine who died in a helicopter crash in late January.
The first season, the latest installment in Bryant's Wizenard story that follows the progress of a young basketball player dealing with various trials and difficulties, was released last week. Bryant's company describes it as "a story of effort and sacrifice, supernatural breakthroughs, and the utmost dedication to the game."
Bryant was the creator of the series and imagined the storylines.
Other books created by Bryant's content company became more popular in the days after the basketball legend died in a helicopter crash on January 26th.
Other Granity books that should create bestseller lists earlier this year include "Epoca: The Tree of Ecrof", "Legacy And The Queen" and "The Wizenard: Training Camp" – the sequel to this bestseller.
Bryant's book "The Mamba Mentality: How I Play", published in 2018, was also a bestseller and was again a major part of Amazon's top lists this year.
Much of Granity's work continued after Bryant's death, including rates from the Detail sports sports program on ESPN. Granity said after Bryant's death that it would continue its mission to "use creative education to inspire people to be the best versions of themselves."
Bryant won five NBA titles with the Los Angeles Lakers and retired in 2016 to focus on Granity and his passion for content and stories.
The two-time Olympic gold medalist was also an Oscar winner in 2018 and was announced last weekend as a 2020 class member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
