After graduating, he declared the 1996 NBA Draft and was ranked 13th by Charlotte Hornets. The Hornets then traded him to the Lakers. As a rookie, Bryant won the 1997 Slam Dunk Contest and was named an All-Star in the second season, gaining fame as a favorite of high flyers and fans. Despite a feud with teammate Shaquille O’Neal, the pair led the Lakers to the third consecutive NBA Championship from 2000 to 2002.

A criminal case was filed after the indictor refused to testify, then withdrawn, and the civil case was later settled out of court.

After the Lakers lost to the 2004 NBA Finals, O’Neal was traded, and Bryant became the Lakers’ cornerstone. During the 2005-2006 and 2006-2007 seasons, he led the NBA scoring. In 2006, he earned 81 points in his career. It was second only to 1962’s Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game to score the second-highest score in a league match.
