Mamba Mentality is described as "constantly attempting to be the best version of yourself." The basketball world familiarized themselves with this term throughout Kobe Bryant's dominant 20 years in the NBA. Since Jewell Loyd has joined the league she has been deemed the "Gold Mamba" by the man himself and even has the Nike Sponsorship to prove it!
After being drafted first overall in the 2015 WNBA Draft, out of Notre Dame, Jewell has trained with Kobe each summer in a pursuit of her own personal greatness. With goals of becoming an Olympian, Winning World Championships, and leaving a legacy behind that transcends lives.
In an effort to support this transcendence Jewell is sponsoring 15 female student-athletes out of South Carolina that fit the mold and represent the "Mamba Mentality" day in and day out.
Through this program these athletes will have the opportunity to develop a personal relationship with Jewell as mentee's, enrich both their leadership, knowledge, and performance on and off the court. Here they will also begin to craft their own legacies one day at a time as they are on a "constant quest to become better than they were yesterday."
