Kobe Bryant won the NBA Championship during his fourth year in the NBA. His career began when he was selected as the 13th overall pick in the 1996 NBA Draft by the Charlotte Hornets and later traded to the Los Angeles Lakers.
Bryant ushered the Lakers to three consecutive NBA championships from 2000 to 2002. He also led the Lakers to two consecutive championships in 2009 and 2010, earning the NBA Finals MVP Award on both occasions.
Kobe Bryant ranks third and fifth on the league's all-time post-season scoring and all-time regular season scoring lists. He is also the all-time leading scorer in Lakers franchise history and is tied for the most All Star MVP Awards in NBA history. Additionally, he won a gold medal as a member of the USA national team at the 2008 Olympics.
As the Los Angeles Lakers face numerous challenges following their disappointing exit from the 2012 NBA Playoffs, some are calling for Kobe Bryant to take a pay cut.
