Kobe Bean Bryant (born August 23, 1978 (1978-08-23 )) is an American All-Star shooting guard who plays for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association . Bryant is the only son of former Philadelphia 76ers player and former Los Angeles Sparks head coach Joe "Jellybean" Bryant . His parents named him after the famous beef of Kobe , Japan , which they saw on a restaurant menu. Bryant and then-teammate Shaquille O'Neal led the Lakers to three consecutive NBA championships from 2000 to 2002 . Since O'Neal's departure following the 2003–04 season , Bryant has become the cornerstone of the Lakers franchise, and was the NBA 's leading scorer during the 2005–06 and 2006–07 seasons. In 2006, Bryant scored a career high 81 points against the Toronto Raptors , the second highest number of points scored in a single game in NBA history. Bryant was awarded the season's MVP in the 2007–08 NBA season after leading his team to the 2008 NBA Finals as the first seed in the Western Conference. In 2008, he won a gold medal as a member of the 2008 Summer Olympics U.S. Men's Basketball Team , occasionally referred to as "The Redeem Team," a play on the name of the first Olympic team that featured NBA players, the Dream Team . In 2003, Bryant made headlines when he was accused of sexual assault at a hotel in Edwards, Colorado by a hotel employee. Bryant admitted an adulterous sexual encounter with the accuser, but denied the sexual assault allegation. In September 2004, prosecutors dropped the case after his accuser informed them that she was unwilling to testify. Bryant's accuser brought a separate civil suit against him that was ultimately settled out of court.
