His parents gave him the name “Kobe beef” because they had seen it on a menu at a restaurant. His father’s nickname “Jellybean” inspired the creation of his middle name, Bean. Bryant was raised a practising Catholic since his family was.

Bryant began playing basketball at the age of three, and his favourite team as a youngster was the Lakers. [23] When Bryant was six years old, his father left the NBA and relocated his family to Rieti, Italy, where he currently plays basketball professionally.

After two years, they relocated to Pistoia, Reggio Emilia, and subsequently Reggio Calabria. Kobe adapted to his new way of life and developed his fluency in Italian.

His favourite childhood memories were created at Reggio Emilia, which he believed to be a lovely location. While residing in Reggio Emilia, Bryant started taking his basketball seriously. For Bryant to watch, his grandfather would mail him NBA game videos.

He gained further basketball knowledge through animated sports movies from Europe, which served as another source of inspiration.

His father competed for Olimpia Basket Pistoia from 1987 to 1989, teaming up with former Detroit Pistons Leon Douglas. Douglas shared that Kobe worked as a ball boy and mop boy at the games and practised shooting at intermission “Halftime at each of our games including the Kobe show. He would step outside and line up his shot. At halftime, we would have to eject him from the court after coming out of the locker room.”
