In this essay, I’m going to be talking about the legacy of Kobe Bryant. I will give you the information about Kobe’s life on and off the court. I will also tell you about Kobe’s early life, his NBA career. Some of you may know Kobe Bryant through his professional NBA career. Some of you know him through as a wad of paper and yelling Kobe! Make it into the trash can. Or you may know him through a tragic helicopter death that he experienced earlier this year. I actually know him through when I watched my first Lakers game in 2008 and I was hooked on Kobe. I basically inspired myself off Kobe Bryant. He was one of my favorite players ever.

Kobe Bryant was a professional basketball player who played for the LA Lakers for 20 years and winning five NBA championships. He was a husband to his wife and a father to his four children. He had an incredible career and life before his death earlier this year.

Kobe Bryant was born August 23rd 1978 in Philadelphia. He was the youngest of three children to Joe and Pamela Bryant. Joe Bryant was an NBA player so the athletic DNA was clearly there for Kobe to prosper. Kobe started playing basketball when he was three years old and his favorite team was the LA Lakers. His father moved from America to Italy to continue playing professional basketball overseas where Kobe grew up and became fluent in both English and Italian.

When Kobe was 13 his family moved back to Philadelphia where he attended Lower Merion High School. He was one of most dominant high schoolers in the nation. He broke the record for most points in Southern Philadelphia history. He had many offers to big name NC Double A Division one. Most excepted him to go to college, but he decided to follow in the footsteps of all-time NBA all-star Kevin Garnett and declared for the NBA Draft straight out of high school. Kobe Bryant’s decision to declare for the NBA Draft turned out to be great one. It helped him learn even more about how to play at the next level in the NBA where he became widely known as one of the greatest players that ever play the game of basketball.

Kobe was drafted in 1996 and then he was traded immediately to his favorite team the LA Lakers. He continuously improved to become an all-star in just second season. Even during the beginning stages of his career, he was being compared to NBA legend Michael Jordan. He continued to thrive in the league for his 20 seasons with the Lakers where he won five NBA championships. He broke many scoring records and continuously proved doubters wrong. Kobe continued to do well, but his supporting cast continued to struggle. Kobe finally brought his team back to start of em and he retired an NBA legend in 2016. He finished 4th an all-time scoring list with 33643 points. The second highest amount of points scored in a single game with 81. He still continued to influence the outside of the world. He also influenced his family. He supported his daughters with everything he had until his passing earlier this year. In an article in spring 2020, “On the Loss of Kobe Bryant” the author named Pat Burns states that Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter accident on January 26 2020 in Calabasas, California. 8 other people, including his daughter Gianna were also killed. Kobe Bryant had left basketball behind.

In this essay, I talked about his early life and his NBA Career. I appreciate the greatest of the basketball player, the father of four children, the man that was known as Kobe Bryant.
