Practicing jump shots with his left hand showed Bryant’s determination not to let the broken hand be a setback in his career or the Lakers season. His body’s ability to recover quickly allowed him to have a break-out year, making the transition from a premier talent to a premier player. Despite the broken hand,
Bryant earned his first selection to the First Team All-Defensive team and his first NBA Championship during the 1999-2000 NBA season.
