Vote your favorite Kobe Moment! pg 2 for updates! (3 vs 24)

Postby therealdeal on Thu Jul 12, 2012 4:29 pm

In light repetitive discussions about Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol, Steve Nash, and our bench woes I am organizing another voting competition!

Last time we voted on the best Laker moment in the modern era (I believe we went back to 2000). This time I'm letting you decide which competition would be the most fun! Vote amongst these 3 topics and I will begin accumulating subjects on which to vote.

1. Best Kobe Bryant Moment, Game, Series, or stretch. (these may overlap, for instance if you loved his 4 straight 40 point games this season, but loved one specific game more than the others then both can be a subject in the tournament.)

2. Best Laker Dunk of All Time*. (obviously we must cover within the ability to see or at least account for a dunk. For example, It would be difficult to include Wilt)

3. Best Laker Player Whose Jersey is NOT Retired. (Included would be guys like Cooper, Wilkes, Fox, Fisher, Horry, etc.)


Here are your choices! The polls will close on Saturday so that I have Sunday to begin to set up the tournament. For those of you who weren't around or don't remember, I will use your help to accumulate a list of subjects which will be put into brackets randomly and then pitted against one another. A poll will open and you will be able to vote on which one you like best.

The poll to choose is open now! I'd love if you participated and helped spark some more fun and light harded debates!

Thanks! I'm also open to an option other than those three if the majority would like something else.

Please post any questions or comments!

I vote for option 1. Option 2, too many to count. Option 3, Robert Horry wins that.

Option 1: Game 4 against Indiana in the 2000 NBA Finals (Duck Face)

Option 2: Kobe’s Alley-Oop to Shaq

Option 3: Michael Cooper (Saving Block)

Robert Horry etched his name in lure mainly for his game winning shot in Game 4 against Sacramento in the 2002 Western Conference Finals, which led to the subsequent championship that crowned a 3-peat. More so because of that miss in Game 5 against San Antonio in the 2003 Western Conference Semifinals, which ended the hope of a 4-peat. The first since the 1960’s Boston Celtics.

Michael Cooper also made a game winning shot in Game 5 against Utah in the 1988 Western Conference Semifinals, which led to the subsequent championship that crowned a re-peat. The first since the 1968-1969 Boston Celtics. He also set a, then, record six 3’s in Game 2 against Boston in the 1987 NBA Finals.

Option 1. Im just going to add what my fav kobe moment was. For me, that double OT 3 pointer buzzer beater to clinch the division against Portland is Kobe's greatest shot. The degree of difficulty on that and time left made it insane. that was a shot only kobe could make, MJ didn't have that range. i don't care if it wasn't a playoff game blah blah blah. that shot when it went in made me jump out of my seats and scream like a little girl.

In light of the overwhelming support for option number 1, I'm closing the polls early.

Our newest tournament is officially...

Which is the Best Kobe Bryant Moment, Game, Stretch, or Series!

I am now taking suggestions for moments, games, etc. The more you give me, the longer the competition and the more fun we can have talking about it! Below is an example brought by lakerzkb8. Provide your favorites so that they can be in the tournament!


1. Kobe's 3 Point shot to Clinch the Division title in 2004.

Is it "best Kobe moment" as in most amazing performance/shot/play or could it be interpreted as most memorable moment / most moving moment? If it's the latter then I'd go with him chasing the ball in the end of Game 7 agains the Celtics, knowing he was a 5 time champion. That's as good as it gets.

If it's the former there are lots of choices, I'd have to hit you back later with a selection

EDIT:
Options:

-30 pt 3Q agains the Mavs to go for 62 while the mavs had 61..
-61 point game at MSG
-Bucket to tie the game in regulation and famous buzzer beater to beat PHX in the playoffs
-Game 6 against PHX 2010, including incredible clutch shots over extremely tough D


There are a lot more

Very underrated. Kobe shuts down T-Mac and takes over the 4th quarter leading the Lakers to a come from behind victory.


Started out the game 14-16 from the field and hit 8 threes..probably the hottest stretch I've seen him have.


Kloses out the Suns with impossible shots. Doug Collins not pleased :man10:


17 points in 6 minutes to start the 3rd quarter on very tough shots.

It is completely open to interpretation thus far. If and when you guys have provided enough content we can look back collectively and make judgements.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Kobe Bryant’s defense didn’t just neutralize Allen Iverson’s offense, it completely shut it down.

Bryant held Iverson scoreless in the second half and scored his team’s final six points Sunday to lead the Los Angeles Lakers to their seventh straight win, 87-84 over the Philadelphia 76ers. -- February 20, 2000

1. Kobe's 3 Point shot to Clinch the Division title in 2004.


This really should be both of his shots. Why just the one???

It is really hard to choose a specific thing that Kobe has done to put in ONE vote. When I think of Kobe's accomplishments, so many things jump out at me:

1.) 81 Point game
2.) 62 against Mavs in 3 quarters when they had 61
3.) 2 amazing shots in Portland (2004)
4.) 61 in MSG

So taking these, I have to say for my vote are:

Game: 81 point game against Toronto (but that Mavs one is close because its so dang funny).
Moment: Shots against Portland
Stretch: Feburary 2003 where he scored 9 straight 40+ games.

1. Two Clutch Shots in Portland to Clinch Division (2004)
2. 81 Points
3. Chasing the Ball Down After Game 7 Finals in 2010
4. 62 Points in 3 Quarters vs. Mavs
5. 61 Points in MSG
6. Phoenix Game Tying Shot And Buzzer Beater
7. Clutch Shots vs Suns in Game 6 in 2010
8. Kobe Shutting down Iverson in 2000
9. February 2003 9 straight 40 point games
10. Game Winner in Boston 2010
11. And-One Three Pointer vs. Spain 2008 Gold Metal Game
12. 42 Points at Halftime vs. the Wizards
13. 62 Points vs. the Blazers
14. Game 5 of the 2010 Finals
15. Game 4 of the 2000 Finals vs Pacers
16. 55 Points in Jordan's last game at Staples
17. Kobe's dunk on Nash
18. Kobe's dunk on Ben Wallace
19. Kobe's dunk on Dwight Howard
20. Kobe's 12 Three Point shots
21. Kobe's circus shot over Howard in the 2009 Finals
22. Kobe becomes Lakers All-Time leading scorer
23. Kobe dunks on Okafor
24. Winning All-Star Game MVP in Philadelphia
25. Winning All-Star Game MVP in LA
26. Winning All-Star Game MVP with Shaq
27. Winning All-Star Game MVP in Vegas
28.
29.
30.
31.
32.

Thanks to all of you guys who have helped so far! We're close and we only need a few more subjects! I'm also welcome and willing to consider other subjects over everything provided thus far! Just a little closer guys, I need your help!

48 points and 16 rebounds vs Kings in game 4 and follows it up with 45 points and 10 rebounds vs Spurs in game 1




40 points 8 rebounds and 8 assists in game 1 of the 2009 finals. Think only a couple players have had this stat line in a finals game.


Behind the back, 360 dunk 2003 vs Nuggets


Game tying three vs Pistons in 2004 Finals

The Dunk on Nash
The Buzzer Beaters in the Suns Series where we were up 3-1

his dunk on the Jazz that starts at 1:38 and goes to 1:54
and that is all I can think of right now.

I have more, I just need to find and think about them.
