All 36 Kobe Bryant Game Winners in 30 Seconds (& 15 minutes)
For Kobe fans short on time or with ADD, here’s every game winner by Bryant in just 30 seconds. For Kobe fans who have 15 minutes to kill, here’s also a longer version showing 36 instances when the now 36 year old Kobe killed the mood of opposing teams and players who thought they had a victory over the Lakers.
HOW CLUTCH IS KOBE?
For Kobe fans and “haters,” here’s some interesting information about Bryant when it comes to game-winners and clutch shots. On January 4th of 2015, Kobe made a game-winning floater with 12.4 seconds left against the Pacers. The shot broke a long streak of potential game-winners but didn’t break his streak of missing 13 straight game-tying/winning shots in the final 5 seconds of a 4th quarter or overtime. Do these apples change your mind about Kobe and his status as one of the, if not the most, clutch player in the league? How about if I mention he also had a streak of 12 misses back in 2005/06?
Now this is when fans come to Bryant’s defense and ask for stats in the playoffs. Well, take a look at this graphic.
Now this is the part when somebody like Charles Barkley says screw analytics and stats and other start searching for pics of Kobe showing off his rings and championships to send to me thinking I’m “hating” on Bryant. Don’t bother sending me the pic, I’ll post one of the player I consider the most clutch player in the past 15 years with the results of his clutchness for you.
