Kobe's dad to coach in Japan

Joe Bryant, father of NBA superstar Kobe Bryant, is set to become a coach in Japan's first-ever professional basketball league. The six-team league starts play this month.

Incidentally, Joe named Kobe after a Japanese steakhouse in Philadelphia. "Kobe" was either the name of the steakhouse itself, or an item on the menu. That item would be beef from the city of Kobe, considered the best (and in fact probably the most expensive) in Japan.
