Natalia Delmont Bryants middle name Diamante means diamond, which is cherished by her parents.
Just like last seasons warriors, its hard for the media to be impartial when the team is divided. At that time, Kobe Bryant was not a media darling, and even as ambitious as Durant, he refused to say a word in front of the camera for ten days. Lakers reporters have said that if Kobe Bryants personality is not so bastard, they have long been unified in saying that he is the first person in the league.
Kobe Bryants protection of family life was abnormal at that time, but the Los Angeles Times still dug out a lot of gossip about their husband and wife. The critical attitude towards Vanessa was obvious, because neither Kobe Bryants former sneaker Company nor the people in the locker room of the Lakers liked the arrogance of the young girl.
They think that Vanessas beauty and disaster has turned Kobe Bryant into a stranger, and she is no longer the one who listens to her mothers words.
According to media reports, before and after Natalias birth, Bryant contacted divorce lawyers (strongly denied by Bryant).
Of course, Kobe Bryant is not a sex predator. No one who knows him believes that he has that violent gene. The Eagle County scandal can be said to be the inevitable result of the hidden thunder in his previous life.
Vanessa was reportedly hit hard when she called an ambulance to drive home in the early hours of the morning when she learned about her husbands arrest. As for Natalia, outsiders dont know.
In 2004, Vanessa signed a new contract with her daughter
ESPN sent Sherry Smith, a top female reporter, to follow up on the case, and some of her questions and reports clearly made Kobe very angry. In the end, she was blacklisted by Kobe Bryant for ten years. Kobe is famous for her targeted newspaper. In order not to affect the work of other peers (Kobe often ends the interview when he sees her), she had to give up covering the Lakers news at last.
Before Gianna, Kobe and Vanessa had one more child. But Vanessa miscarried because of two years of lawsuits and farce.
Gianna grew up in a period when her parents were relatively stable, and she had a sister to take care of her, which made her character very jumpy. She fell in love with basketball early, and Bryant later brought her to the All-Star Game - not many stars, you know, take their daughter to the All-Star training ground.
In 2007, Kobe Bryant completely ended his legacy of resentment with the Lakers management, and gave buss the greatest trust (since then, he has not publicly targeted the management, even Jim buss). Everything is getting better.
To the mens basketball team to prepare for the final, Vanessa and her two daughters also came to the scene to witness him win the gold medal, and also accompanied him for his 30th birthday.
As he got older (and more titles than ONeal), Kobes attitude toward the media changed a lot. He used to be so defensive, just out of fear, but later he was not afraid of anything, looked at a lot of things, a lot of words can be taken out.
Interestingly, the biggest news he made when he was a coach is also related to Mamba spirit.
Last year, Kobe Bryant posted a photo of them taking the 4th place in the League on social network. No one laughed in the photo at that time. As a result, Kobe was criticized for being too serious. Why did the little girl coach so seriously? In particular, Bryant also pointed out that some players missed the game because of dancing practice, and the media highlighted Kobe scolded the children on the title.
As a result, Kobe and Vanessa both responded. In fact, Bryant said, they made a fake smile version, which was still out of his request.
And its a long story. Two years ago, they lost to the opponent 21-22, but now they have finished their revenge, and the score is 115-27. Kobe Bryant also shows all the kids are happy. Thats what calms down the storm.
He also said: (Gianna) will definitely go to WNBA.
Because of Giannas love, focus and talent for basketball, Corbis doesnt think its a pity that she doesnt have a son to succeed him in the NBA.
Because of Gianna, Kobe Bryant has seen more Lakers games on the spot - of course, hes always looking at Giannas favorite games to give her a chance to communicate with her favorite stars.
Because Gianna, from unwilling to express the political position of Kobe Bryant has become an open feminist. He doesnt need to brag about himself on social networks - his actions have proven it all.
It is said that Vanessa could not bear his repeated infidelity and filed for divorce (and it is said that some of the Lakers wives who didnt like Vanessa at that time were happy to tell Vanessa about Kobe Bryants stealing and torment her), and Kobe Bryant faced a terrible financial loss.
His relationship with his parents has improved, and he has even reconciled with Shirley Smith. Shirley was very moved when she heard that Kobe Bryant was willing to accept her interview after ten years.
Shirley recalled that Bryant hugged her and said there were too many things in life that were more important than that.
Im going to cry. She said, Im so happy to end the cold war with him. Its embarrassing to keep away from him. I dont want to be pointed out.
When Bryant felt the most isolated, he began to tattoo. He has nothing but his wife, his daughter and his faith. The content of Psalm 27 on his arm can be described as his voice at that time:
The Lord is my light and my salvation. Who am I afraid of?
When those who do evil, my enemies, come to eat my flesh, they stumble and fall. Though an army encamped against me, my heart was not afraid; though a sword arose against me, I would still be safe.
O God of my salvation, do not lose me, nor forsake me. My parents have forsaken me, and the Lord will take me in.
Do not give me to the enemy, as he wishes.
One of Kobes last images
The source of Capri Kobe Bryants middle name is interesting.
The Kobe family has a strong sense of festivals and anniversaries. The baptism before the birth of the child, the reception after the birth, and the birthday of the whole family every year should be organized wantonly.
Kobe Bryant hated the fact that the Lakers played away at Christmas when he was a player, and he never missed the holidays when he retired. Every year, their family will shoot gorgeous and formal family photos, and they will spend Halloween in various ways.
The reason why Bryant relies on helicopter travel is to save time and spend more time with them.
After his retirement, his schedule changed. My daily routine is very fixed. I lift weights in the morning, send my children to school, fly to the south, continue training, and then deal with the work and other things that need me. Then fly home and squeeze into the carpool lane to pick up the kids.
Sometimes Vanessa said that if he was too busy, he could pick him up and take him away, but Kobe insisted on taking the job. He cherished and enjoyed chatting with his daughter in the car or on the plane.
Maybe compared with Vanessas hard work on children for more than ten years (which is often not measured by money), Kobes investment is not much, but at least he is trying to catch up.
When Capri got up for the first time, she jumped at her aunt and turned to her mothers camera and smiled
Kobe made mistakes in his marriage - big ones that many women cant even forgive. But in a few too short years, everyone saw his change and was moved by it.
His daughters are so excellent, and Vanessas years of hard work without a nanny is the main reason. But Kobes message to his children as an example should not be ignored.
Whats more, Kobe Bryant got real personal growth because he was a father. In 2016, Kobes mother diagnosed brain cancer. Shortly after Pams diagnosis, Bryant published a long article a letter to the young me on player forum.com, explaining for the first time why he cut off his support to his family when he was young.
