This full length documentary goes into full detail of the Kobe Bryant legacy. Kobe Bryant was an American professional basketball player. As a shooting guard, Bryant entered the National Basketball Association NBA directly from high school, and played his entire 20-season professional career in the league with the Los Angeles Lakers. Bryant won many accolades: five NBA championships, 18-time All-Star, 15-time member of the All-NBA Team, 12-time member of the All-Defensive Team, 2008 NBA Most Valuable Player (MVP), two-time NBA Finals MVP winner. Widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, he led the NBA in scoring during two seasons, ranks fourth on the league's all-time regular season scoring and all-time postseason scoring lists.
Bryant was the son of former NBA player Joe Bryant. He attended Lower Merion High School in Pennsylvania, where he was recognized as the top high-school basketball player in the country. Upon graduation, he declared for the 1996 NBA draft and was selected by the Charlotte Hornets with the 13th overall pick; the Hornets then traded him to the Lakers. As a rookie, Bryant earned himself a reputation as a high-flyer and a fan favorite by winning the 1997 Slam Dunk Contest, and he was named an All-Star by his second season. Despite a feud with teammate Shaquille O'Neal, the pair led the Lakers to three consecutive NBA championships from 2000 to 2002. In 2003, Bryant was accused of sexual assault by a 19-year-old hotel clerk. Criminal charges were brought and then dropped after the accuser refused to testify, with a civil suit later settled out of court. Bryant denied the assault charge but admitted to a sexual encounter, and issued a public apology, but the allegations were considered to have harmed his public profile and led to the loss of several sponsorships.
After the Lakers lost the 2004 NBA Finals, O'Neal was traded and Bryant became the cornerstone of the Lakers. He led the NBA in scoring during the 2005-06 and 2006-07 seasons. In 2006, he scored a career-high 81 points; the second most points scored in a single game in league history, behind Wilt Chamberlain's 100-point game in 1962. Bryant led the team to two consecutive championships in 2009 and 2010, and was named NBA Finals MVP on both occasions. He continued to be among the top players in the league through 2013, when he suffered a torn Achilles tendon at age 34. Although he recovered from that injury, he suffered season-ending injuries to his knee and shoulder, respectively, in the following two seasons. Citing his physical decline, Bryant retired after the 2015-16 season.
At 34 years and 104 days of age, Bryant became the youngest player in league history to reach 30,000 career points. He became the all-time leading scorer in Lakers franchise history on February 1, 2010, surpassing Jerry West. Bryant was also the first guard in NBA history to play at least 20 seasons. His 18 All-Star designations are the second most all time, while it is the record for most consecutive appearances as a starter. Bryant's four All-Star MVP Awards are tied with Bob Pettit for the most in NBA history. He gave himself the nickname "Black Mamba" in the mid-2000s, and the epithet became widely adopted by the general public. At the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics, he won two gold medals as a member of the U.S. national team. In 2018, he won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film for his 2017 film Dear Basketball.
The Staples Center had a memorial 2/24 February to celebrate the life of Kobe and his daughter Gianna. Among those who spoke was his wife Vanessa Laine Bryant, Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Alicia Keys and Beyonce who performed, Shaq, Jimmy Kimmel.

  • If Kobe got drafted by the Charlotte Hornets How'd he end up on the Lakers How did that take place. It was crazy The entire N.b.a had their eyes on Kobe and they put him on this pedestal that their was No room for error at all ....He was the spot light so much . That was alotta pressure they put on him but Kobe Bryant handled it well. I bet the Charlotte Hornets are kicking themselves in the ass every day for trading Kobe the first round of his rookie season.

  • I used to really dislike Kobe not as a person but as a player because I thought he stole Jordans style and even mimicked his facial expressions and so on. When the Lakers played Portland in the 2000 playoffs I wasnt even a blazers fan but since pippen was on the teams I rooted for them to win. Anyway long story kinda short as time went on he grew on me just like he did on most people and I started to see him grow from a 18 high school baller from outside of Philly into an assassin on the basketball court. One more thing I remember his first game with the Lakers he came in off the bench and his first or second shot was a bad air ball and I laughed and said he was over hyped and wasn't going to turn into a excellent player..... Man was I wrong!! He will always be a top 5 all time player in my book no matter where lebron ends up. We miss you Kobe and you touched so many youngsters out there on the playground wanting to take that big shot on the court and a big positive step forward in life!

  • If you want to be a professional athlete, Why the FUCK would you go to college? For what? Do they offer basketball as a major? Can you get a degree in basketball? The fact is collage sports is a racket that forces many athletes to prolong their amateur career, compounding their risk of career ending injury before they can capitalize financially off their talent. Most of these athletes come from poverty. 2 of the 3 men currently argued about by most as to who the GOAT is came straight from high school. If you're 6'6" to 7'0" going to college is better for them than for you. I say "GET THAT MONEY SON!"

I know our work and goals all cannot be completed in one lifetime - but the chapter on basketball to play and inspire generations is certainly complete - THANK YOU KOBE! RIP my brother At 8 years old he scored 61 points in the game when he felt that Basketball was his sport and his last game 60 points and a win -
