Kobe Bean Bryant (August 23, 1978 – January 26, 2020) spent his entire 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers in the National Basketball Association (NBA) and is regarded as one of the best NBA players of all time.
Bryant helped the Lakers win five NBA championships, and was an 18-time All-Star, a 15-time member of the All-NBA Team, a 12-time member of the All-Defensive Team, the 2008 NBA Most Valuable Player (MVP), and a two-time NBA Finals MVP.
Kobe Bryant died at age 41, along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others, in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California in 2020. A number of tributes and memorials were subsequently issued, including renaming the All-Star Game MVP Award in his honor.
