Unfortunately for Kobe, Floyd Mayweather’s uncle is trying to trademark the nickname. http://bit.ly/P1Z51b

According to TMZ, Mayweather has filed a trademark application:

There’s a major sports star who’s trying to get the rights to call himself the “Black Mamba” — only it’s not Kobe Bryant, it’s Floyd Mayweather’s uncle … who’s been using the nickname for decades.

 
TMZ Sports has learned … Roger Mayweather — a former boxing champ turned trainer — filed a trademark application with the U.S.P.T.O. hoping to win the rights to the mark, “Roger ‘Black Mamba’ Mayweather.”

Apparently, there’s no evidence that Kobe has trademarked “Black Mamba” in the past according to TMZ:

But get this … when researching the trademark claims on “Black Mamba,” we couldn’t find any evidence showing Kobe has ever tried to trademark the name for himself.

There should be a rule..if nobody knows you exist then you shouldn't be able to trademark a nickname.

Kobe is the only Black Mamba I've heard of, and the only relevant one at that. :laughing:

Interesting though the fact that Floyd & Kobe are pretty close. Wonder if Kobe & him will have a talk about this at some point & try to straighten things out.

So when he was like six? A six year old calling himself the back mamba is who you avoid on the play ground.

Didn't James Brown trade marked the name King James back in the 70's?  Nevermind, no he didnt.

MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.
