National Basketball Association world reacts to Kobe Bryant's Academy Award

National Basketball Association world reacts to Kobe Bryant's Academy Award

The 18-time All-Star, 15-time member of the All-NBA Team, and 12-time member of the All-Defensive team can now add Oscar victor to his impressive list of credentials. In addition to his new Oscar and many National Basketball Association awards, Bryant also boasts an eye-popping net worth even by professional athlete standards.

Kobe Bryant may be retired but he isn't done winning trophies. What is his net worth? "I, of course, couldn't possibly know what actually happened".

American Basketball legend Kobe Bean Bryant is known for a successful two-decade career in the court but that may have changed after he wrote history in the film industry at the heart of Los Angeles.

The future Hall of Famer won five National Basketball Association titles over the course of his 20-season career with the Lakers. God help us all if Bryant decides he wants to become an Oscar-winning feature film director next.

In 2003, Bryant was accused of raping a 19-year-old woman and was charged with sexual assault.

Last night the Oscars had quite a few surprises, and one of them came from National Basketball Association champion Kobe Bryant. He retired after playing his final National Basketball Association game on April 13, 2016 against the Utah Jazz, in which he scored a season-high 60 points.

James said he watched "Dear Basketball" - a short based on a poem Bryant wrote in 2015 announcing his impending retirement from basketball - the night it came out and "it was phenomenal".

Check out the spectrum of reactions to Bryant's win. The 39-year-old described the experience as bigger than anything his lengthy and celebrated basketball career had to offer.

The former Los Angeles Laker arrived in the press room to a near standing ovation and was swamped with questions.

How does Kobe Bryant make his money?

Gary's acceptance speech included special shout outs to his Darkest Hour inspiration, Sir Winston Churchill, as well as his mum watching back at home.

"You don't have to sit in a tub of ice", Keane told Bryant backstage. In addition, he also garnered a staggering $280 million (£202.8 million) in endorsements for various products and services.

When Bryant took the stage to accept his golden statue, he also took the opportunity to send a message.

Who is Kobe Bryant's wife?

The couple started dating in 1999 and married on April 18, 2001.

She cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split. Ingraham subsequently responded to the negative reception for her comments, issuing a statement saying that there was "no racial intent" in her remarks while adding, "If pro athletes and entertainers want to freelance as political pundits, then they should not be surprised when they're called out for insulting politicians".

Bryant, the film's executive producer, picked an ideal teammate in Disney's Keane, the animator who is behind, among other projects, "Aladdin", "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Little Mermaid".

On Twitter, numerous elebrities congratulated Bryant on is win, which can be read below.
