Before Reading please note I am new at this article stuff and I need plenty of work to even reach the goal I would like to achieve.
Allow me to introduce this article with a few little words. First Name KOBE, Last Name BRYANT. It's the year 2010 and 14 years ago a young superstar entered the 96' draft. In that same draft 12 teams passed on Mr Bryant but the 13th selection would be the Hornets (then Charlotte).
Of course it happens all the time, players are passed upon because we don't get the right information to scout a future talent or whatever the case the point is, the hornets were lucky to have had him fall to their position. The Hornets who needed a center at the time of this draft traded away Kobe's draft rights to the Los Angeles Lakers, which of course the rest is history.
Center Vlade Divac was traded to Charlotte for Kobe Bryant and to think Charlotte had found a stud but as we all know sometimes you make risky choices because we need a certain position and were willing to go the distance to receive that position. You live and you learn from these choices as they go, so watch what you trade it just might come back to haunt you later.
14 Years later Kobe Bryant considered to be the "best player in the game", and why not? Let's face it, Kobe is just a man on a mission with his crunch time clutch shots. Going back to his "3-Peat" with the Lakers in the early 2000's everything he ever wanted came true in those 3 years and their rivalry with Sacramento and Portland were just some of the many battles on the court to reach those 3 championships (of 15).
This talented superstar Kobe achieved his goal at the time to win a championship 3 times and lets not forget his 4th without Shaquille O'Neal. Kobe is one of the greatest players of all time you know why? Because when his career is over he could end up with 7 more championships not saying he will but even with 4 or 5 or 6 he's still a top of the best of all time.
As of today the Laker's are the "best in the west" and defending champions, so it's no surprise that they are team to beat in that conference but lets not forget that anyone can win on any given day, yes it can happen. Cavaliers with Lebron James could meet the Laker's in the finals this year (notice I didn't give anyone else a glimpse or a sniff) at the finals.
No Laker fan nor ever will be but I do know greatness when I see it, and Kobe is great for what he does on the court day in and day out! Being only 31 for Kobe that is could lead him to that major milestone (he already achieved the logo's most points in laker history) milestone, so why not the league's most career points milestone, hey it could happen!
Give respect where respect is due Kobe Bryant is playing the game like hes got some major monkey on his shoulder. The only thing left to say is well that if you dare to dream big do it like Kobe, go for it.
