Why No.18?

There’s little doubt that Kobe Bryant’s strength in the face of adversity has made him a role model for adolescents and grown men alike, as he’s managed to bounce back from a potentially crippling controversy to become a sports idol to millions. Kobe Bryant’s on-the-court prowess continues to improve as he ages, and it’s consequently not surprising to note that he was recently awarded the 2008 NBA Most Valuable Player Award (which places him alongside such legends as Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Shaquille O’Neal). Though his presence on this list may have been unimaginable a few years ago, Kobe Bryant has tenaciously climbed his way back to the top.

Short Bio

With each passing year, Kobe Bryant manages to slough off a little bit more of the less-than-savory reputation he’s been associated with following the sexual-assault allegations of 2003. His boundless professionalism and undeniable talent have played a significant role in his slow-but-steady ascent to the top of his field, with his 2008 accomplishments only cementing his status as one of the key figures in modern basketball. In addition to his gold-medal-winning stint on the United States Men’s Basketball Team, Kobe Bryant proved an instrumental force in the Los Angeles Lakers’ stellar 2007-2008 season that culminated in a nail-biting six-game series against the Boston Celtics.

I know that (remember all the [expletive] I got and still get at that Broncos messageboard for being a Laker fan?).

Still, for him to cause such an uproar, that would only prove his influence.
