Lakers Nation Debate: Greatest Kobe Moment Of All-Time

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

Topic: With Kobe Bryant celebrating his 36th birthday this weekend, we wonder what is Kobe’s greatest moment of his career?

Context: As Kobe Bryant heads into the twilight of his career, this has become a time to reflect on everything great that he has done throughout his time in the NBA.

Kobe will go down as one of the greatest players to ever play the game, and he has left the fans with plenty of memories along the way. Lakers fans have been fortunate enough to see Kobe grow up from the young high school kid, to the ruthless competitor who will do whatever it takes to get the victory.

The possibilities of Kobe’s greatest moment are endless. Whether it was a clutch shot to win a game, an accomplishment to prove his doubters wrong, or a ridiculous dunk to posterize a defender, Kobe has left fans speechless so many times, it’s hard to separate one particular moment.

At the end of the day, when fans look back at Kobe’s career, what will be the first thing they think of to describe his greatness? That is the question.

Verdict: We went to Twitter to ask our followers, what is your favorite Kobe Bryant moment of all-time? These are some of the responses:

Easily the most split the fans have been on any debate subject, and with good reason. There were a number of other great moments that aren’t on display here, such as his 61 points in the Garden, his dunk over Dwight Howard, or his ridiculous game winner over Dwyane Wade.

Overall, the 81 point game seemed to be the slight favorite amongst the fans. It makes sense as that is something that most people will never witness again in their lifetimes, and everyone remembers where they were when that happened.

Two Kobe Bryant moments have always stood out for me. The first is his ridiculous game-clinching shot in the 2010 Western Conference Finals against the Phoenix Suns. After hitting the shot he turned around and patted Suns coach Alvin Gentry. It was the perfect combination of skill and arrogance.

The other one is Kobe making the two free throws after tearing his Achilles. The pain tolerance, grit, and determination that Kobe is famous for was on full display. Many would have left the floor or possibly been carried off, but Kobe blocking everything out to knock down two free throws was near superhuman.

    Getting caught touchin’ it
    in Colorado, 2003. Priceless….

    • DKWTTY

      Zach that you under a new name again? Tisk tisk. So pathetic.

    • Joseph Apohen

      You just can’t leave that alone, can you? Everyone has weakness. What is yours?

    • Tyson

      what man doesn’t want to touch it??? I got caught by my girl several times but I’m not a superstar so nobody charged me with rape.

    • Caidorb

      If your dad caught you touching it, he’d probably throw a big party!

    • Brodiac

      First of all, touchin’ it relieves alot of stress and it was obviously a ‘hard’ season for him. Two, he was looking to ‘dominate’ the competition that night, hence the Kobester was looking to ‘score’. Three, this article did say “Greatest Kobe Moment of ALL-TIME”, ’nuff said. And last but not least…..who da @#% is Zach???

      • Ba Deng

        Zach is an infamous troll roaming this site, spewing hatred for Kobe and picks an argument with any fan who contradicts his opinions. And watch out for that CLIPPERSRUNLA person, too. He’s just as irritating.

        • Zach

          What? He’s not as irritating as I am!! Give me some credit…

          • Kishan

            ZACH i wonder if u have any friends

  • piclo

    lakers sign&trade nash and rockets 1st pick for — bledsoe
    lakers trade henry, davis and sacre for — hibbert
    sign&trade kelly, boozer, rockets 2nd pick, Johnson for — monroe
    sign beasley

    And Scott would coach a team that looks like this:

    PG- Bledsoe, Lin
    SG- Bryant, Clarkson
    SF- Beasley, Young
    PF- Monroe, Randle
    C- Hibbert, Hill

    • Realistic Laker Fan

      Just stop.

    • Joseph Apohen

      Hibbert? You can’t be serious?! As Johnny Mac would say.

      • piclo

        he’s a true center

        • Joseph Apohen

          What is a true center? One who disappears in big games?

          • piclo

            the one who block shots and was a top five defensive player two years ago!

          • Joseph Apohen

            What has he done lately? Did he not disappear in the last playoff?

    • http://batman-news.com Duckathon

      Even if the opposing GMs wanted to make those moves, any of those trades would be veto for “basketball reasons.”

  • Jerome

    “Beasley remains an All-Star talent with D-League reliability.”

    PER Sports Illustrated

  • Jerome

    PG Jeremy Lin/Jordan Clarkson/Steve Nash
    SG Kobe Bryant/Nick Young
    SF Michael Beasley/Wes Johnson/Xavier Henry
    PF Julius Randle/Carlos Boozer/Ryan Kelly
    C Jordan Hill/Ed Davis/Robert Sacre

    • Zach

      Looks like a D-League all-star team.

    the statue just looks weird with the snake coming out between the thighs…

  • http://batman-news.com Duckathon

    Too many that one doesn’t really sticks out.

  • Zach

    Had to be when the DA’s office dropped the rape charges against him? He’s never really had any big clutch moments on the floor, and the stats prove he’s not the guy to go to when the clock is ticking down.

      “a guilty offender will occasionally mention his crimes in everyday conversations…often to condemn others having a similar crime to downplay their own…”

    • Kishan

      35 game winners kobe has…… but ur right he hasn’t had great moment coz i reckon the greatest moment is still to come when kobe punches ur face in .. will defo be the greatest moment of his career ..

    • Kishan

    2008 Season – First time as the #1 of the Lakers that he led them to the Finals. They lost to Boston. But, he definitely made his teammates better with his play; and it was the beginning of 3 straight trips to the Finals.
