For decades people have yelled "Kobe" when shooting trash away to honor Kobe Bryant, one of the greatest scorers in NBA history.
If you don't say "Kobe" when taking a trash can jump shot, you likely lack the Mamba Mentality.
The Undertaker showed he has the Mamba Mentality on the series finale of The Last Ride when WWE cameras caught him saying "Kobe" as he tossed away tape following his WWE Super ShowDown 2020 appearance against AJ Styles.

Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and seven others tragically passed away on January 26 in a helicopter crash.
Later on the finale of The Last Ride, Undertaker noted that the death of Kobe really struck him and made him realize that he needed to be more present around his family and friends.
The Last Ride ended with Undertaker announcing that he has no desire to get back in the ring, though he did use the "never say never" caveat. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
