Kobe Bryant's Car CollectionKobe Bean Bryant, a.k.a. Kobe Bryant began his basketball career at Lower Merion High School, where he quickly established himself as one of the best high school players in the country. He was drafted by the Charlotte Hornets with the 13th overall pick in the 1996 NBA draft but was quickly traded to the Los Angeles Lakers, where he spent his entire career. During his time in the NBA, Kobe went head-to-head with some of the best players of all time, like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Michael Jordan, Dwyane Wade, Tim Duncan, and Steph Curry. During his time with the Lakers, Bryant became one of the most iconic and dominant players in NBA history. He won five NBA championships (2000, 2001, 2002, 2009, and 2010), two Olympic gold medals (2008, 2012), and was named to the NBA All-Star team 18 times. He won his first three championships while being part of one of the most dominant duos of all time with Shaquille O'Neal. He also won the NBA All-Star Game MVP a record-breaking four times, the NBA MVP in 2008, the NBA scoring title twice, and was named the NBA Finals MVP twice. The All-Star Game MVP was renamed the Kobe Bryant MVP award after he passed away in 2020. Bryant was known for his incredible work ethic and dedication to the game of basketball. He had a fierce competitive drive and was known for his ability to perform in clutch situations, earning him the nickname "The Black Mamba." Bryant's signature moves, including his fadeaway jump shot and his ability to finish acrobatic layups in traffic, were iconic and often imitated by other players like Kawhi Leonard, Devin Booker, Jayson Tatum, and DeMar DeRozan. Bryant's sudden and tragic death in 2020 was mourned by basketball fans around the world.
