You are looking at an autographed 2001 Kobe Bryant All-Star Jersey. Kobe autographed this Los Angeles Lakers road jersey in black sharpie on the front number, and the jersey displays the 2001 All-Star game patch. UDA individually hand numbered this jersey 32 out of a run of 108. Kobe autos are slowly drying up from the marketplace. The still rising market for Kobe autos has been fueled by his untimely and frankly surreal passing less than four years from his final days on the floor.
I've always admired Kobe as the ultimate "lead by example" player - I don't think he would demand anything of anybody on a basketball court that he wouldn't do himself, and if he was talking about how you weren't doing it right, I believe he would absolutely show you what needed to be done. I recall Tex saying he was the smartest player he had ever coached, and that ability combined with his drive and athleticism simply allowed him to be one step ahead of everyone else on offense.You can read the frustration in his inflection and demeanor when he would talk about those Lakers teams of the mid-aughts, and how it seemed like he had to help them with just about everything.
