9. Kobe Goes Baseline vs. Clippers

After tearing his Achilles at the end of the 2012-13 season, and lasting only six games the following year, there were plenty of questions about whether or not Kobe still had the athleticism to rise above defenders.

He answered that question in the team’s third game of the season against the rival Clippers. Kobe blew by former teammate Matt Barnes on the baseline, went under the rim and rose up for a massive slam that showed he still had some spring left in his legs.
