In the heart of Los Angeles’ glittering glamour, Kobe Bryant was undeniably the heart-throb of the town. Kobe made his debut in the NBA in 1996 with the Los Angeles Lakers and was the most eligible bachelor until 1999.
With a $600 million fortune at stake, Kobe knew how to save it from the ones who wanted him for all that he could give. In an interview, the Lakers star spoke about his take on gold diggers and candidly spoke about how he just rolled the dice.
He stated, “Well, you really can’t differentiate. It’s very difficult to tell, with what I’ve learned throughout the years. So what? Just roll the dice. I think God has a plan for us all, and if she’s the one that’s meant to be, then that’s what’s going to happen. I think it’s just going to be a gut feeling that I’ll have. I’ll just know that she’s the one.”
Kobe just seems to have the best answer to everything being asked. From him beautifully expressing what love is to talk about how you know when she is the one. The NBA fans are glad that he hit the jackpot with Vanessa Bryant. The two had the most inspiring and mesmerizing love story in NBA history.
