Kobe Bryant (1996 – Fleer Metal #3/15)

Kobe Bean Bryant (The Black Mamba) was the 13th pick in the 1996 NBA Draft (right out of high school) by Charlotte, but spent his entire 20 year career with the Los Angeles Lakers.  His records and accolades are too numerous to list here, but inluded 18 times an NBA All-Star (2008 MVP), a 5-time member of an NBA Championship Team (2-time Finals MVP, 2009 and 2010), a 2-time NBA scoring champion (2006 – ’07), and the Los Angeles Lakers all-time leading scorer.  He was also a member of the All-Star Team that won the 2008 (Beijing) and 2012 (London) Olympic Games. He was as close to Michael Jordan (the NBA’s greatest player), as a player, as was humanly possible.  All the honors and accolades are not in yet, as he only retired in 2016.
