This is from the February 5th game at Boston when the Lakers beat the Celtics in overtime. You can see from this picture how intense the game actually was. Kobe getting ready defensively against Paul Pierce. He actually shuts Pierce down on this play as Pierce tries to drive left and Kobe reaches in and knocks the ball out forcing the game into overtime.
Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo tries to bully Kobe with a little push to the chest and Kobe will have nothing to do with it. He sticks his finger in Rondo’s face as if to scold a teenager. Classic picture! Rajon Rondo should be embarrassed about this one!
The night Kobe Bryant scored 61 at Madison Square Garden. He had this intense look on his face all night long right from the very beginning of the game. You knew right from the start that he came to do something special. You just didn’t know it would end up being the all time MSG scoring record in one night!
Feel like you’ve seen this picture before? Any Deja Vu anyone? That’s because there is a picture of Michael Jordan guarding Magic Johnson that looks just like it! Kobe got the best of Lebron in this game as Kobe Bryant showed why he is still the best basketball player on the planet.
Just another day at the office for Kobe. This was shortly before hitting the game winning shot against the Pacers at home. Kobe showing a little frustration during the game. Even the best himself gets frustrated from time to time.
Kobe getting in the face of Garnett and Paul Pierce probably telling them to stop their whining after every single call that doesn’t go their way! Of course being the Celtics, they didn’t listen and continued to complain anyways.
Great shot of Kobe Bryant going to the basket with a reverse layup not even looking at the basket. And yes in case you are a doubter this shot did go in!
Kobe Bryant putting in the work before a game against the Celtics on Christmas Day. Going through his normal gameday routine with jumpshots hours before tipoff.
Look out below Boston. There’s a flying Kobe Bryant in the air attacking the rim. Great photo of Kobe receiving a backdoor pass from Luke Walton and going up and slamming one through all in one motion. Great shot from behind the basket of this play.
Just another day at the office for Kobe Bryant giving high fives to a few fans as he leaves the court to the locker room after beating the Celtics on Christmas day.
