Renaissance Man of 2016
By Dustyn Baumgartner
He was a national icon. Today his career is coming to an end as he plays his last season. Every game means that the clock of his career is winding down. Kobe has played 18 years in the NBA. He became the youngest player to reach 30,000 points. He passed Michael Jordan on the All-Time assists leader board.
Today he is a legend and is guaranteed a spot in the NBA Hall of Fame. He has many outstanding achievements. He is 34 years old and played for 18 seasons in the NBA. He has seen many players come and go. Some of them he had never met and the others he was great friends with. He is a true example of a Renaissance Man.
