Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant was a professional basketball player in the United States;

He was the first guard in the NBA to play at least 20 seasons, which was great.


Bryant became the youngest player in the league to reach 30,000 career points, as you can see;

During his 20-year career, Bryant had played with the L.A. Lakers and I'm speaking truthfully.


Bryant is regarded as one of the greatest basketball players of all time;

Whoever doesn't believe me is a big ball of slime.


In 2018, Bryant would win the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film for his film that's entitled Dear Basketball;

Bryant was 6 feet, 6 inches tall.


Bryant was an expert in the martial art called Jeet Kune Do;

That martial art would help him gain mental strength and physical prowess, in case you didn't know.


On Jan. 26, 2020, Kobe Bryant was killed in a helicopter crash and here's something else that I'll say;

He'll be missed by his family, his friends, and his fans everyday.
