From Lower Merion to the Upper Echelon of the NBA

In the beginning… There was Kobe.

Before Kobe Bryant was king of the Staples Center and electrifying millions of people all around the world with his ridiculously sick basketball skills, he was dropping jaws and breaking ankles at Lower Merion High School in Ardmore, Pennsylvania.

All the while racking up on enormous amount of accolades, trophies and awards… Literally, one right after another – including USA today‘s National High School Player of the Year while attending Lower Merion as a senior in 1995-1996. That same year Kobe averaged almost 31 points a game, right at 12 boards, seven dimes, four steals and damn near 4 blocked shots per game. Pretty crazy stats if you ask me!

Kobe also led his school to a ridiculous 77 and 13 overall record in the last three seasons of his high school career while snagging the class AAAA state championship in his final year. Senior year going to post an impressive 31 and three record which also included winning 27 straight games at the end of the season. 27 straight!

Kobe Goes Pro….

When Kobe Bryant decided to make the jump to the NBA straight out of high school, he would become the first player ever in the Los Angeles Lakers franchise history to do so… Overall, he was the 27th person to go straight from high school directly into the NBA. In fact, just that same year another high school phenom Jermaine O’Neal would also make the jump. However, his NBA career didn’t quite live up to the hype and especially could never match that of Kobe Bryant yo! (Actually, I’m pretty sure he ended up building pool decks in South Beach like my little brother or driving a semi truck like my uncle Rodney or something… LOL)

But first, more crazy high school stats…

Yo! Would you believe that when it was all said and done and Kobe “Bean” Bryant played his last game at Lower Merion high school in Ardmore, PA – that he would finish as the all-time leading scorer in the history of South Eastern Pennsylvania. But even more crazy man, he would end up passing another Hall of Fame basketball player you may of heard of…. a guy by the name of Wilt Chamberlain, who had 2,359 points and was surpassed by Mr. Kobe Bryant with 2,883 points. Damn son – that shit is Cray Cray!

Kobe Bryant McDonald's all AmericanBefore becoming a Superstar 2 guard and winning five championships with the Los Angeles Lakers and historic 20 year career the big Homie Kobe was also a McDonald’s All-American, the Naismith High School player of the year, and a Gatorade circle of champions high school player of the year award winner! This dude was also named the most outstanding player at the beach ball classic down in good old Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Kobe Bryant was also the ABCD summer camp player the year in 1995 from Adidas.

I mean damn man the dude is ridiculous even before entering the NBA it’s no surprise he’d go on to become SO great. Yo, if you love Kobe Bryant as much as we do here at the Staples King (dot com) – be sure to leave some love and comments here on the page and we’ll be sure to get right back to you.

Kobe Bryant Highlights: “The Lob to Shaq…”

It’s game 7 of the 2000 Western Conference NBA finals, winner takes all against the Portland Trailblazers and all the stakes are on the line. Kobe’s Alley-oop to Shaq goes down as one of the most incredible play’s in Kobe Bryant’s illustrious career. Although Kobe and Shaq had their problems, issues here and there, when it all was all said and done these two future Hall of Famer’s got it done and will forever live in Laker legend history.

If you remember correctly this game seemed like it was out of reach with 10 minutes and 28 seconds left in the game, Portland was up 75 to 60 and LA was on the verge of blowing it big time!

But luckily the purple and gold pride stepped up and made one of the greatest comebacks of all time in the history of the NBA. Main players like forward Glen Rice, the Big Homie Shaq, “big-game Bob” Robert Horry, Rick Fox, Horace Grant and others… These dudes kept their head in the game, kept their composure and showed the world what Los Angeles Laker basketball is all about. Holla.

Lakers roster

(Yo, check out now Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyron Lue to the far left (#10) It literally looks like he’s ten! lol

The Portland trailblazers were pretty decent team with an older banged up Scottie Pippen, Rod Strickland, Mike Dunleavy, Rasheed Wallace, but they were no match for one of the best playoff teams of all time. Kobe Bryant was just so dominant in the series and they had no answer for Shaquille O’Neal. The beast. Man how I love watching this team growing up southside Los Angeles.

Yo, really appreciate you coming through Shout out to all my Lakers fans for coming through be sure to leave your comments and tell me how much you love the purple and gold. What do you think we should do next year to get the team on and popping again? What’s the deal with DeAngelo Russell?

Be sure to check out the Los Angeles Lakers official team store and get yourself some awesome swag to show your true fan hood. I love sharing Lakers stuff with you guys just talking about the Lakers all the time, so hit me up with any specific topics you want me to cover.

But for now, whattya’ say we relive that magical moment when Kobe crosses over the old wily veteran Scottie Pippen (and one of the 50 Gretatest players of all time) and proceeds to lob it up to a one arm slamming Shaquille O’Neal?

Welcome to my new website

Yo what’s good, I’m Marcus, welcome to my new website – Staples King (dotcom). For two decades I had the pleasure of watching one of the greatest NBA basketball players of all time -Kobe “Black Mamba” Bryant – DOMINATE inside the Staple Center Los Angeles.Kobe Bryant Image

As crazy as it may sound, in some strange way, Kobe’s influence on me has helped me see things in a much different way and has also helped me turn my life around in many ways. I have to say, just watching this man over the years and his insane work ethic, crazy determination to be the best, and the way he has crafted his lethal skillset… What can I say? The man is raw.

The Backstory.

I remember it like it was yesterday. It’s the summer of 1996… I’m just a no good, troublemaking, life going nowhere fast, 16-year-old knucklehead living life in Southern California.

It’s hot as fuck outside, I’m out with the boys, we’re chasing girls, looking for shit to do when we finally end up at “Big Ray’s” …

4 hours later we’ll still sippin’ on shit – smokin’ mad muthafuckin’ blunts – slowly passing out – when on pops the TV.

“With the 13th overall pick, the Charlotte Hornets select… Kobe Bryant.”

Kobe Bean Bryant Rookie

“Kobe Who?”

… “I don’t know man, I’m just glad he’s  going to Charlotte and not to our Lakers, son.”

(Too bad I didn’t know the Lakers had Charlotte’s draft pick and were pulling the strings behind the scenes the whole damn time man.)

Also, little did I know my life would change forever from that moment on. I mean, watching Kobe all these years; his drive, determination, work ethic, sickness for being great (consistently over the last 20 years). I truly believe has helped catapult my life to great heights of success and abundance I never previously dreamt possible.

So – throughout this website – I want t0 share some great Kobe moments throughout his career and also a small portion of the wisdom, motivation, and inspiration I took from watching one of the best ever to rock the purple and gold!

20 straight years dominating the court inside Staples Center. So YO! Let’s take a look at some of his best and brightest moments. So sit back, grab a cold one, and let’s get started.
