While there have been some valid criticisms of Kobe Bryant one thing can never be argued is his intense desire to win.
This was something that Kobe Bryant did a lot!
An All Star by his second season, Bryant emerged as one of the most exciting players in the game and would become one for the most prolific scorers in basketball history. Bryant took his Los Angeles Lakers to five NBA Championships, and earned himself two scoring titles and an MVP along the way.
An eighteen time All Star, Kobe was also praised (though this was rarely discussed) for his defensive skills as he was also named to twelve All Defensive Teams and appropriately he made eleven First Team All NBA squads. Bryant would also take the United States to two Gold Medals, and was named by TNT as the player of the 2000’s, a huge honor indeed!
