Most people, for example, probably know that Kobe Bryant is one of the highest scoring players of all time. But did you know he's actually scored more points than Michael Jordan?
As it turns out, Kobe didn't love sharing his name with a cut of tender, fatty beef. So, in 2010, he sued the Japanese city of Kobe for the rights to rename their signature product.
Growing up in Italy, Kobe grew to love the sport of soccer and its culture. He played in frequent pick-up games at the park, first as a goalie and then as a midfielder.
