The black mamba is Africa's longest venomous snake and a taste of its venom will kill a human being within 30 minutes. But is it deadlier than Kobe Bryant with the ball in his hands? Yes. Very much so. But even at 35, Bryant remains a lethal presence on the court. Now that we have that out of the way, feel free to make your own jokes about his moniker and the 2003 accusations.
