Meet Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant is living his dream and he doesn't want to wake up. The Los Angeles Laker guard is in third NBA season. He is one of the league's top players.

Kobe, age 20, moves like lightning on the court. His flashy moves freeze defenders in their tracks. He averaged 19.9 points during the 1999 NBA season.

Even though Kobe is a big NBA star, he still lives with his parents and sisters. "I have the best of both worlds," Kobe says.
