In honor of Kobe Bryant’s 38th birthday today and the City of Los Angeles declaring August 24th (Kobe’s jersey numbers 8 & 24) “Kobe Bryant Day,” here’s the Top 10 Plays of his 20 year career in the NBA.
Think about that: 20 Top 10s and if you asked a Kobe fan to name their favorite 10 plays, there’s a good chance they will come up with dunks, passes, moves and game-winners that didn’t make the cut in these countdowns.
The other great thing about looking back at these countdowns from his #8 days is to be reminded that Kobe is not only one of the most underrated dunkers of all-time but he’s one of the best! Top 10? He’s Top 5 in my books.
