The son of former NBA player Joe Bryant, Kobe is the first guard in NBA history to play for at least 20 seasons, in which he won five NBA championships with the Lakers.
Bryant is an 18-time All-Star, the 15-time member of the All-NBA Team, and 12-time member of the All-Defensive team. His four All-Star MVP Awards are tied for the most in NBA history.
Bryant co-founded an independent record label, Heads High Entertainment, but it didn’t last even last a year.
For a player whose career ended on April 2016, he still was able to break into the list of America's Richest Entrepreneurs Under 40 at the 33rd place, 10th in the World’s Highest paid, and 43rd in celebrity 100 lists.
The net worth of Kobe Bryant as of 2017 was still a strong $366 million.
Kobe Bryant's Endorsements
Nike continued to be Kobe’s major sponsor throughout his career. Kobe Bryant Nike shoes are still big sellers to this day, retailing at over $100 a pair. Some are collectibles worth many thousands of dollars on the sneaker market.
In 2009, Bryant signed a deal with Nubeo to market the "Black Mamba collection", a line of sports/luxury watches that range from $25,000 to $285,000.
Kobe Bryant’s Salary
In 2010, Bryant was ranked third behind Tiger Woods and Jordan in Forbes' list of the world's highest-paid athletes with a salary of $48 million.
He made a huge impact for the Lakers that even in his farewell season, he was earning almost $50 million with only LeBron and Durant were earning more than him. But he was pocketing the highest salary as he demanded $25 million from Lakers (while LeBron was earning $23 million from the Cavaliers).
