Overview

Kobe Bryant may be one of the youngest basketball players in the NBA, but no one would dare call him inexperienced. The son of Joe "Jellybean" Bryant, a former NBA player and star of various European teams, Kobe spent his childhood watching professional basketball. From the moment he could pick up a ball, he was learning to dribble and shoot. His basketball education was unique - a combination of lessons on basic fundamentals, one-on-one games against his dad, and keen observation and analysis of the world's best players. Kobe learned his lessons well, and at age eighteen was given the chance to prove it when he was drafted into the NBA. Fresh out of high school, Kobe showed that he had the talent and the heart to make it in the pros. This exciting biography traces Bryant's life from childhood to his part in the Lakers' 2000 NBA championship.

Kobe Bryant maybe one of the youngest basketball players in the NBA. He is the son of Joe"Jeallybean" Bryant, a basketball player and star of various European teams. Kobe's childhood watching professional basketball games made him pick up a basketball for the first time. He was learning how to shoot and dribble. His basketball education was a unique combination of lessons on basic fundamentals, one-on-one game against his dad, and keen observation and analysis of the world's best players. Kobe learned his lesson well, and at age 18 he was given the chance to prove it. He was drafted into the NBA when he was fresh out of high school. Kobe showed that he had the talent and the heart to make it in the pros. From one out of five, I rate this book a five because it made me want to play basketball. I REALLY LIKE THAT BOOK..IT WAS REALLY GOOD AN GAVE A LOT OF DETAILS ABOUT KOBE..!!!!!!! From the moment he entered the league 13 seasons ago, it was abundantly clear Kobe Bryant had the talent to become a player who could score at will. The "Next Jordan" tag was predictable, but the bumps in the road that followed were anything but. Kobe's competitiveness and desire to put up points often alienated teammates, divided fans and sparked a media backlash, even as all three parties couldn't help but marvel at his ability. Since the Threepeat years, a combination
