Kobe Bryant Net Worth $220 Million

Kobe Bryant’s father, Joe “Jellybean” Bryant was a former player for the Philadelphia 76ers and former head coach of Los Angeles Sparks. So, it could be said that basketball came naturally to Kobe. He started playing basketball at the age of three, even then dreaming of playing for his favourite club Los Angeles Lakers. After finishing high school, he skipped university and was drafted by the Charlotte Hornets in 1996, however, he was immediately traded to the Lakers. At 19 he became the youngest All-Star starter in the history of NBA. In his third year Bryant signed a six-year contract extension worth $70 million. Kobe has only played with the Lakers during a career spanning almost 20 years. The team has won five NBA titles over these seasons, and Kobe’s records are legendary, including leading league scorer (2005-6, 2006-7); selection for the ALL-NBA team 15 times; 17 NBA All-Star games; and four All-Star MVP awards. His scoring record is set at almost 150 games in which he scored more than 40 points.

At 37 and after 19 years playing in the NBA Bryant is still at the top of his game. His worldwide stardom has landed him contracts with brands like Adidas, Spirit, Spalding, Turkish Air, Nike, Coca-Cola, etc, earning him over $40 million through endorsement deals with these brands.

In his personal life, Kobe Bryant married Vanessa Laine in 2001 and the couple has two daughters and remain together despite some differences along the way. The couple has established the “Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation” which helps families in need. Additionally Bryant is an anambassador for After-School All Stars, an American non-profit organization that provides comprehensive after-school programs for children, and also started the Kobe Bryant China Fund which partnered with the Soong Ching Ling Foundation, a charity backed by the Chinese government. The Kobe Bryant China Fund raises money within China earmarked for education and health programs. He is also a supporter of the Call of Duty – Black Ops organisation which assists military veterans to resume civilian lives.
