Kobe Bryant broke into the NBA in 1996 as a teenager fresh out of high school. It was during Bryant’s rookie season that the NBA celebrated its 50th Anniversary. To honor the history of their franchise and the anniversary of the NBA, the Lakers donned a reproduction of their 1961-1962 jersey. Thus far, Kobe Bryant has led the Lakers to three NBA titles and has begun a new era in the history of the NBA.
