Kobe Bryant bio
He was born in Philadelphia and spent some time growing up in Italy. He is the son of former NBA player Joe Bryant.
While attending the Philadelphia suburb Lower Merion, where he was regarded as the best high-school basketball player in the country, Bryant declared for the 1996 NBA draft and was chosen by the Charlotte Hornets as the 13th overall choice. He was then moved to the Los Angeles Lakers.
Bryant won the 1997 Slam Dunk Contest as a rookie, developing a reputation as a high flyer. By his second season, Bryant was chosen an All-Star.
The two guided the Lakers to three straight NBA titles from 2000 to 2002 despite a dispute with teammate Shaquille O’Neal. Bryant was accused of sexual assault in 2003; the alleged victim was a 19-year-old hotel worker.
Following the accuser’s failure to appear in court, criminal charges were eventually withdrawn, and a lawsuit was settled out of court with Bryant delivering a public apology and acknowledging a sexual contact that he insisted was consensual.
Bryant’s reputation was briefly damaged by the allegation, which cost him many sponsorship deals.
