First RIP Mamba! Kobe attended our local high school, Rip Kobe Bryant 1978-2020 signature shirt Lower Merion and was always in the gym. I believe he was driven by living the ups and downs of his father’s NBA career. To recap, “Jellybean” Joe Bryant was a great local Philly basketball star who played some years with the Sixers. But he was a role player and was out of the league in a few years. He took the family to Italy where he played with a few different teams. From a maturation point of view, this was good for Kobe. He saw how hard Joe had to work to stay in the game, thus the learned work ethic. But he vowed that no one would push him out of his NBA dream. Thus the transformation of K Bean Bryant into the Black Mamba, the player no one could outwork or beat at crunch time.

After Kobe made his trade request, he made a list Rip Kobe Bryant 1978-2020 signature shirt of places he wanted to go to. Lakers wanted to get something great in return. I tried to trade him to Detroit for Rip Hamilton, Tayshaun Prince, and boatload of draft picks. He turned it down because he doesn’t want to go to Detroit. They tried to trade him to Chicago for Luol Deng, Ben Gordon, Joakim Noah, and Tyus Thomas. Kobe thought for a moment… and felt he just want to leave from a bad situation of Kwame Brown and Smush Parker. Yet, he’s going to another bad situation with this trade. Plus he wanted to play with 22 yr old Luol Deng to form a new duo. So that trade went nowhere when Kobe thought Chicago gave up too much for him. No joke! LOL
