VIDEO: Kobe Bryant’s Top 10 Plays From The 2004-05 Season
The 2004-05 season wasn’t exactly kind to the Lakers. Phil Jackson left after losing in the Finals to the Pistons the previous year, Shaq fled for the Miami Heat, head coach Rudy T resigned after 43 games and Kobe played in only 66. For the first time since the 1993-94, the Lakers missed the playoffs. With everything seemingly taking a turn for the worst in that one year, Bryant was still able to put together a collection of incredible plays during the season. You’ll see a few baseline dunks, a couple of nasty alley oops, a couple buzzer beaters and Kobe with one of the most memorable dunks in NBA history. Check out the Top 10 plays below.
