Lakers Nation Reacts: Which Kobe Championship Is Your Favorite?

kobebryant2010Very few players in NBA history are fortunate enough to win five NBA Championships in their career. For Kobe Bryant, those five championships were five completely different championship experiences that added to Bryant’s immense legacy.

You have his first championship over the Pacers which is that defining moment where you get over the hump. The second title was arguably the most dominant run by a playoff team in NBA history. The third cemented those Lakers as a dynasty and only the third team to win three consecutive championships.

Then you fast forward to 2009 where Kobe won his first championship without Shaq and got his first NBA Finals MVP. Of course his last championship was an epic seven game war with the Boston Celtics.

So we asked Lakers Nation which Kobe championship was your favorite:

Overwhelmingly Lakers Nation enjoyed Kobe’s final ring the most as 72 percent of the 176 responses say they loved Kobe’s fifth championship the most. Without a doubt this has a lot to do with the fact that it was against the Boston Celtics.

After the 2008 Finals in which the Lakers were dominated in falling to the Celtics, gaining revenge over the Lakers’ biggest rivals really brought made this championship that much sweeter. The fact that this series was an absolutely gut-wrenching seven game series was also a far cry from the other four series in Kobe’s career.

The Sixers, Magic, and Nets were all overmatched and fell in four or five games making those series less memorable. The win over the Pacers was a battle but the Western Conference Finals against Portland was more memorable and epic than that series.

The Celtics series stands alone as the best series of the five, the most memorable, and with it being a revenge series against a hated rival, it makes sense that Lakers Nation love that series the most.

    KB24 has many great championship moments but the Celts is at the top IMO.

    Oh ya Boston! They stole our 3peat! #hateboston4life

    Everyone forgets the fact that the 4th was super sweet, because it was the 1st without shaq after many failed attempts in the playoffs. The only thing about this one was that it was won in Orlando not L.A.

      To a Kobe fan 4th seems more important, but to a laker fan beating Boston is always #1

  • Lakersgirl8

    For me, definitely 2010 against the Celtics.

    All of them are special but the 5th is spectacular. It was against the Boston team that beat them in the 2008 Finals in Boston!, Also, Kobe being injured and having a slump of his life. Coming from behind in that game 7 of the finals where everyone pick up the slack on both the offensive and defensive end. What a CHAMPIONSHIPS REVENGE and REDEMPTION it was.
