The two shots against Portland because it perfectly illustrates Kobe ability to make impossible shots , he's the GOAT in that department .... most of the players in the league couldn't get up the same type of shot as the 1st one or hit the rim ... make it ? nobody

In a fantastic matchup between #28 Kobe's Alley Oop to Shaq vs. the Blazers and #1 Kobe's Two Clutch Shots vs Portland in 2004, #1 pulled ahead late to win 16-10.

The next matchup is another great one #6 Kobe's Game Tying Shot and Buzzer Beater Against Phoenix vs. #9 Kobe's 9 Straight 40 Point Games. One is maybe the defining shot of Kobe's career. The other is one of the greatest scoring bursts the league has ever seen. Go to page 2 for side-by-side video comparisons (#9 is represented by the first game of the streak).

Remember this isn't just a voting contest, it's a discussion! But still remember to vote too!

I was super excited for the Suns shot, but I was in awe of the 9 game streak.

This. And we ended up losing that series against PHX :bang:

I'm going to have to go with the 40 pt streak. That first game against NY was incredible and included his famous baseline double clutch windmill on sprewell.

Those playoff shots were great... but we lost the series.

On the other hand, the 40-pt streak was a truly historic performance by Kobe.

Those shots were amazing, but that streak of 40 point games was ridiculous, gotta go with that.

I went with the playoff OT and game winner vs Phoenix. The result of that series was agonizing but the temporary euphoria was amazing.

In what I consider an upset #9 Kobe's 9 straight 40 point games beat #6 Kobe's Iconic Buzzer Beater vs. the Suns by a score of 11-6.

The next matchup pits #22 Kobe Becomes the Lakers' All-Time Leading Scorer vs. #12 Kobe Scores 42 at Halftime vs. the Wizards in Jordan's Final Game in the Staples Center. One is a testament to Kobe's longevity and his greatness among Laker Legends. The other is a classic Kobe Bryant moment, stealing the thunder of what should have been Jordan's night.

I went with all time Lakers scorer. The greatness of the moment is measured by the greatness of the franchise. If it was the all time Bobcat or Twolves scorer not so much.

I chose Lakers all-time leading scorer because of the significance of being at the top of an historical franchise. Also, Kobe torching the Wiz was great but I've seen better from him.

In a modest 9-5 victory, #22 Kobe Becomes the All-Time Leading Laker Scorer beat #12 Kobe's 42 in One Half (Jordan's Last Game at Staples).

The next matchup features #23 Kobe's Dunk on Okafor vs. #7 Kobe's Performance in Game 6 vs. the Suns in the 2010 Playoffs. One is a testament to Kobe's fire and heart as he rises in his beaten body to dunk over one of the game's best shot blockers. The other a vintage scoring display from one of the league's greatest scorers ever.

Phoenix game 6 by far. That's the game where he patted Coach Gentry on the butt during his hot streak right? He was this good that game - :man4:

Kobe"s game 6 performance has to artistically be one of the most beautiful displays of clutch shooting in his career. The degree of difficulty on his shots were off the charts.

Definitely Kobe's Game 6 against Phoenix. I remember just sitting there thinking did this guy really just do that? Just an incredible display from Kobe.

Cruising to a 13-1 victory, #7 Kobe's Game 6 vs. the Suns in the 2010 Playoffs beat #23 Kobe dunks on Okafor 2012.

The next match-up features #10 Kobe's Game Winner in Boston 2010 vs. #30 Kobe's Performance in Game 1 of the 2009 Finals. One is a showcase of Kobe's icy veins. The other a show of his desire to win.

Celtics.



In the finals.



In Boston.

Kobe drills it anyway.



Yeah. :man9:

Kobe absolutely destroyed the magic in game one it was epic and has gone down as one of his best games ever. So my vote goes to #30
