When Kobe made the varsity at Lower Merion High School as a freshman, he selected the number of his idol, Magic Johnson. He had to switch to #33 in 1995-96, because he outgrew the other jersey. Kobe and Shaquille O'Neal were both named First Team All-NBA after the 2001-02 season. They became the first tandem to be honored as such since Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen in 1996. Kobe's 56-point game against the Grizzlies in January of 2002 was the highest total ever recorded by any of the 20+ players who have gone directly from high school to the NBA. He bettered that mark in January of 2002 when he scored 81 points against the Toronto Raptors. Kobe was one of four Lakers to make the 1998 All-Star squad-Shaquille O'Neal, Eddie Jones and Nick Van Exel were the others. The last time four teammates made the game was in 1983, when Julius Erving, Moses Malone, Maurice Cheeks and Andrew Toney of the 76ers were selected. Kobe's nine-game scoring streak of at least 40 points per game in 2003 matched one of equal length by Michael Jordan in the 1986-87 campaign. Kobe had five triple-doubles in 2002-03 and five more in 2004-05 In 2004-05, Kobe hit 43 free throws in a row to break Gail Goodrich's team record of 40. In 2004-05, Kobe became the youngest player to score 14,000 points, surpassing Michael Jordan. Kobe's 2,832 points in 2005-06 was the seventh-highest total in history.

Kobe and Vanessa had their first child, Natalia, in 2003. Their second daughter, Gianna Maria-Onore, was born on May 1, 2006-six minutes ahead of Shaquille O'Neal's daughter Me'arah Sanaa.
