Oregon's De'Anthony Thomas 75 yd punt return TD
Is his nick name really the black mamba?
Ask snoop, hes the one that gave it to him.
XoGisele, Ashley Sky, Niki Skyler
Yeah Snoop Dogg named him that after he torched Snoop's team in the pop warner league he runs.
Damn I thought Snoop was original... He stole a name from the biggest super star in his own city too. It would be like calling someone else "The Big Hurt" or "Mr. October". Just shouldn't be done. Plenty of other names out there.
Was Kobe already calling himself 'Black Mamba' 10++ years ago?
I honestly don't know. Maybe Snoop gave DAT the name before Kobe decided to call himself that?
He was the black mamba in high school I'm pretty sure.
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
he was mamba before kobe
Been a lot of back and forth on this but concensus seems to be DAT likely had the nickname first, but the timeline was very close together.
well one thing i have herd is that kobe started calling himself that when dat was given his nickname
DaT was Black Mamba before Kobe.
