Kobe Bryant, to the Los Angeles Lakers
Career Recap: An 18-time All-Star, Bryant was known for his superior scoring ability and his championship pedigree. Bryant teamed with fellow All-Star Shaquille O’Neal to win three consecutive NBA titles from 2000 to 2002 and later won two more rings, in 2009 and 2010.
Known as the Black Mamba — a nickname he gave himself — Bryant was a 2x scoring champion and won the league’s Most Valuable Player award in 2008.
Nothing sums up Bryant’s legacy better than this quote from Michael Jordan, “He was a fierce competitor, one of the greats of the game and a creative force.”
