It was close to the end. But Kobe and the Lakers were able to somehow squeeze it out and beat the Celtics in Game 7, winning the 17th NBA title for the Laker franchise and number 5 for Laker great Kobe Bryant. Now it’s mandatory to place Kobe Bryant near the top of any “greatest player ever” conversation as he leads his team to yet another NBA championship and his second Finals MVP award in a row. Congrats Kobe! And congratulations to the rest of the Los Angeles Lakers team and coaching staff.
Congrats to Kobe Bryant on his 5th Ring
