Kobe Bryant is an American basketball player with an estimated net worth of $200 million dollars. Bryant is six feet and six inches tall, and he weighs 205 pounds. Bryant was born August 23, 1978 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Kobe was named after the famously expensive Japanese cut of beef. His father Joe “Jellybean” Bryant was a former NBA player who played for the Philadelphia 76ers. His uncle John “Chubby” Cox was also a former NBA player. Basketball was in young Kobe’s blood and he started playing by the age of three. Kobe’s father retired from the NBA in 1984, and moved the family to Rieti, Italy to play in the Italian league. Bryant became fluent in Spanish and Italian and emerged himself in the European culture. He would return to the United States in the summer to participate in summer basketball leagues. In 1991, his family moved back to Pennsylvania and he attended Lower Merion High School. Kobe joined the basketball team and led the high school to four championships in a row. Bryant earned national recognition for his outstanding basketball skills. On top of that, the player had great grades to match. Even though he could’ve easily made it into college, Kobe began practicing with the Philadelphia 76ers and entered the NBA draft straight out of high school.
Kobe was drafted as the 13th overall pick by the Charlotte Hornets in 1996 and traded to the Los Angeles Lakers soon after. In 1998 he became a starter for the NBA All-Star Game. At the age of nineteen, Kobe was the youngest All-Star in NBA history. Although he was fairly new to the NBA, sports writers started comparing the emerging superstar to NBA legends like Magic Johnson and Michael Jordan. Kobe and Shaq worked together to lead the Lakers to three consecutive championships between 2000-2002. After the departure of Shaq, Kobe led the team to two consecutive championships in 2009 and 2010. Kobe Bryant is the Los Angeles Lakers All-Time Leading Scorer.
