Kobe Bryant’s Continued Dominance Cements All-Time Legacy

We’ve all seen the “Kobe System” commercials: Different animal. Same Beast.

Many don’t exactly know what it means, but I think I have a pretty good idea.

Kobe Bryant often alludes to it as well, most recently when a fan asked him if he had seen Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco rockin’ his gear on ESPN, to which Kobe responded via Twitter:

In essence, the meaning can be translated into an athlete of a different sport (or maybe even the same sport) having the same mentality as the Black Mamba.

However, I am convinced that Kobe Bryant is a different beast altogether.NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Brooklyn Nets

His level of play recently would certainly support that.

Early on this season, Kobe was leading the league in scoring and doing so at a highly efficient rate; his scoring average and shooting percentage have dropped since then, but his field goal percentage is still at a career-high (47.5) level.

Then, because the Lakers were struggling and his scoring wasn’t resulting in enough wins, the Black Mamba decided to give play-making a try, and excelled at that as well. In a 12-game stretch ranging from January 25 up until the All-Star break, Bryant dished out an average of 8.5 assists per game, and more importantly, led his team to an 8-4 record.

Following the All-Star break, however, Kobe has gone on a scoring tear in an attempt to will his team to victory–but he hasn’t quite ditch the passing aspect of his game, either.

Bryant had a relatively quiet game against the Boston Celtics following the All-Star break–one that resulted in a 113-99 victory–but has since been absolutely remarkable.

In the seven games (and counting) following that, Kobe has averaged 35.1 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 6.1 assists; all of this on a highly efficient 56.4 percent clip from the field and 47.2 percent from three-point land!

The Lakers are 5-2 over the seven games, by the way.

    I totally agree with you Mr.Freddy Martinez.
    People are always hyping up the up and comers and that’s fine,but never disrespect an active legend.
    When it’s all said and done what Kobe leaves will be hard to match.It is so hard just to stay healthy that long.But to stay healthy and keep progressing?If it wasn’t Kobe I would say it’s unbelievable!Hopefully Howard will appreciate who he’s playing along side and get in where he fits in.Bringing home another ring is more important than anyones fragile ego.
