      Bio

      For those who know me and those who dont know me my name is Kobe Bryant. I am now the star shooting guard on the Los Angeles Lakers. I am the only son of Joe Bryant a former NBA player and Pam Bryant, and the brother of my two older siblings Shaya Bryant, Sharia Bryant, last but not least husband of Vanessa Bryant. For those who dont know I was drafted out of Lower Merion HS by the Hornets when they were in Charlotte and then immediatly got traded to the Lakers for starting center Vlade Divac back in 1996 which made me the 13th overall draft pick and that made me the first H.S player to go from HS immediatly to the NBA. I was born on August 23, 1978 in Philadephia Pennsylania, but then at age 6 moved to Italy because my father decided to play professional ball over there since he was done in the NBA. In Italy was when i started to play basketball and developed skills not only in basketball but soccer to if i havent come back to the United States i would have been a soccer player for my favorite team AC Milan. In 1991 when I moved back I joined to HS team at Lower Merion HS and earned national recognition during a spectacular career. My SAT score of 1080 could have ensured my career to the college I would have enjoyed to attend cause of Coach K was Duke but i decided to make the draft and jump from HS to the NBA which was sucessful. I was drafted by the Hornets when they were in Charlotte and then immediatly got traded to the Lakers for starting center Vlade Divac back in 1996 which made me the 13th overall draft pick. My rookie season I came off the bench for Eddie Jones and Nick Van Excel but as the season began to progress I was invited to the slam dunk contest in 1996 which I won. After that year i started to see more playing time because they saw how much i loved and adored the game and how much i was improving season after season. In 1998 was when the whole Laker team was considered championship contenders with Shaq and the rest of the team which contributed a lot, but as soon as Phil Jackson hit LA was when i saw my first championship ring which was back in 2000, then in 2001 and in 2002. As years kept goin I kept practicing and practicing and kept getting better and better. Then in 03 was when things got really bad i was charged with rap by a caucasian women which the case was dismissed and the LA Laker chances of getting the 4 peat was bigger with the late team mates of Gary Payton and Karl Malone. We had a good year my numbers kept and keep getting better as the seasons progressed but in the 2003 championship we were tarnished by the Detriot Pistons who won the 2003 NBA championship. In the off season everyone who were on the Lakers were either free agents or wanted to be traded after rumors about me, Phil, Phil left first and then Shaq demanded trade and got traded to the Miami Heat for Lamar Odom, Caron Butler, Brian Grant most of the 2003 Laker roster was half gone. In 2004 season we missed the playoffs for the 1st time in ten years but i kept improving.
