A funny joke I tell my friends:
Pick a spot where you think Kobe Bryant couldn’t shot from.
Kobe Bryant to me should be considerable one of the best players to ever touch a basketball!
Here is a quick look at all his accolades. He was a true scoring machine and he had the heart of a true warrior. His passion for the game was undeniable. When I grew up in the 2000’s I witnessed Kobe Bryant dominate the league. I watched him grow up in the league as well from a arrogant young kid trying be like Michael Jordan to a great leader and teacher to the game. Either you loved him or hated him there is no way you can’t deny his greatness!

First coming into the league Kobe Bryant emulated Michael Jordan.
Proof, His game: Kobe first came into embodying Michael Jordan even down to his speaking voice using all his moves , it was like watching the next coming of MJ. People wonder if Kobe had an identity to his game.
Kobe & Shaq break-up was the defining moment in Kobe’s career. The backlash he got for pushing Shaq out of LA. Made him the black eye of the NBA. He was considered a selfish, arrogant , . A lot of incidents of Kobe not getting along with his teammates throughout the years.
Hate ’em or Love ’em.
Kobe is one of the best players ever. One of the most clutch’s players, wasn’t afraid to take that shot in the big moment.
He played in 20 seasons and made the playoffs 15 times.
As Kobe Bryant evolve we starting witnessing what a Michael Jordan baby would play like in today’s generation. Watching Kobe playing with his competitive fire turning his ego into a super alter ego called the Black Mamba. Also changing his jersey number from #8 to #24. Everything about his game had changed. Dominating the west alongside with the Spurs. Which was the team also competing for titles during that era. Kobe won MVP once due to NBA politics of not truly defying what the MVP awards actually means.
We watched Kobe grow up in the NBA and witness a great one.
