Happy Birthday, Kobe Bryant!

Christian Petersen

Today is Kobe Bryant's 35 birthday. What are some of your favorite Kobe moments?

Kobe Bryant came to the Lakers in 1996, a fresh-faced puppily-enthusiastic 17-year-old kid still living with his parents. In fact, they had to sign his first contract because he was a minor unable to enter into a legal contract. But that kid is no longer. Since that time, Kobe has married, become a father twice over, won 5 championships, one MVP award, 2 Finals MVPs, 2 scoring titles, 4 All Star MVPs, climbed to 4th on the NBA's all time scoring list, scored 81 points in a single game (the second most in NBA history), broken every bone in his body...oh wait, that was Evel Knievel. Well, he's done a whole buncha shit no one else has done and that's all that matters.

So Happy Birthday to Lakers legend Kobe Bryant. Here's to at least another 35 years.
