Early life.

Kobe Bean Bryant was born on August 23, 1978 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is the youngest of three children (he has two sisters), and her parents, Joe and Pamela, chose their name … from the menu of a restaurant! Veal or beef Kobe is very popular in Japan. That particular name was chosen by his parents to baptized his son, who later became one of the most important basketball player of all time.

Beginnings in Basketball.

His father played during eight seasons in the NBA (National Basketball Association), and he also played in Italy and France. His uncle John “Chubby” Cox was also a NBA player with Washington Bullets. Kobe started to play when he was three years old in a L.A Lakers camp. He fell in love of the game, and when he was 6 years old, he loved watching games on T.V.

In addition to English, he is fluent in Italian, since he lived in the Transalpine country from six years old to 13 years old when his father played there. The same thing happens with Spanish. He also knows Serbian and French by agreeing later with teammates from those nationalities.

NBA Draft.

After integrating the Lower Merion Institute of Philadelphia, Bryant was selected to join the Charlotte Hornets, but immediately, Los Angeles Lakers, one of the most powerful teams in the league would lay eyes on him. And he would not be wrong because Bryant would give him an innumerable amount of joys: 5 championships, leader in the scoring twice and in several seasons would be honored with the maximum distinction to the players: the MVP (Most Valuable Player Award) of the season.

He played as escort. It means, he was in charge of giving support to the base when it is needed to up the ball, and also do a long distance shoot. Although in many occasions he played as eave.  And that is what his versatility has been highlighted for so long.

Scandals.

Kobe Bryant never goes unnoticed in a court, but neither outside of it. This has happened several times, since he has been involved in different scandals. Some of them very well promoted by the press, like the allegations about sexual harassment, internal fights with his former teammate Shaquille O’Neal, and because he broke the internal code in the locker room, as well as with his coach Phil Jackson for his lack of commitment during training time.
