Bryant entered the NBA in 1996 and became one of the greatest players of his generation. The 2007-08 MVP, an 18-time All-Star and five-time NBA champion, Bryant left an indelible impact on the game as he rose to the top of the sport.
Toward the end of his career and following his retirement in 2016, Bryant also worked with a number of younger stars to impart his knowledge to the next generation.
On Jan. 26, 2020, Bryant was killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California. His daughter, Gianna, was among the eight other victims.
