Kobe’s career in basketball is one that can be broken down in so many ways. He joined the league at the age of 19 and left at the age of 37. With an overall average of 25 points per game in his career, Kobe managed to leave 3rd on the scoring list passing Michael Jordan in 2014. Kobe in his time managed to rack up the accolades as well. Bryant was an 18x all-star and 4x all-star MVP. He was elected an MVP in 2008.

The Legendary Laker was a 5x champion winning from 2000-2002, then again in 2009, and once more in 2010. In two of those championships, he was elected Finals MVP. His electricity on the court was similar to his role model Michael Jordan. Bryant’s on-court accomplishments pushed the league and brought the best out of all players that matched up against him.

Known as Black Mamba, Kobe was noted as one who was intellectually adept, going out his way to learn new languages to be able to converse and sometimes intimidate international players. There were no barriers to his reign. Players like LeBron James, Kevin Durant Steph Curry and more were products of his tenacity. He inspired players on and off the court to have a “Mamba Mentality”, urging players to simply do more.”
