There’s more than one reason Kobe Bryant can be considered a baller. He took a $6 million investment and turned it into $200 million in four years.
Back in 2014, Bryant bought a 10 percent stake in sports drink #BodyArmor. On Tuesday, #CocaCola announced it purchased a minority stake in the drink company, which has turned Bryant’s $6 million into a whopping $200 million investment.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Body Armor was co-founded by Mike Repole who also co-founded Smart Water and Vitamin Water. The beverage is marketed as “natural” and “healthy,” which is now going head-to-head with popular sports drink Gatorade. This come-up adds to the $323 million Bryant has made in his career, according to ESPN’s Darren Rovell.
Other investors and endorsers for the drink are #JamesHarden, #MikeTrout, #SkylarDigginsSmith and #DustinJohnson.
