Kobe Bryant is recognized as one of the top NBA players of all time, leading the Los Angeles Lakers to five NBA titles and earning spots on 15 All-NBA and 17 All-Star teams. Bryant came to the Lakers as a 17-year-old from Lower Merion High School in Pennsylvania, joining Shaquille O’Neal to form one of the most dominant dynasties of all time. Bryant is also known for his off-the-court life, including the 2003 sexual assault allegations and subsequent trial in Eagle, Colorado, which was ultimately settled out of court. Bryant and his wife Vanessa are also a frequent topic for celebrity news, including their troubles and 2013 plans to divorce, which were ultimately called off.
