    kobe bryants greatest performances:

    ranked 1 thru 12. 1 being his greatest performance ever… watching these games is like watching a movie. there’s a difference between great plays, great stats, great moments, and great games. good players make great INDIVIDUAL plays, great players have the greatest stats, ONE GREAT PLAY + GREAT STATS CAN MAKE A GREAT GAME. but the GREATEST PLAYERS have this thang called SHOWMANSHIP! showmanship is wat takes a great individual game and makes it an UNFORGETTABLE PERFORMANCE. WILT, KOBE, MICHAEL, REGGIE, AI…. THESE GUYS ARE WAT U CALL THE SHOWMEN OF THE GAME. HOLLYWOOD. NOT HOLLYWOOD WITH JUST stats, OR WORDS OR DANCE, OR HUMOR OR COMMERCIAL OR SOCIAL MEDIA gigs. BUT WITH PURE GREATNESS OF THEIR GAME. when we talk greatness of a persons game. we’re talkin, THEIR IN-GAME PERFORMANCE. THE ABILITY TO COMMAND THE ATTENTION OF AN ENTIRE STADIUM AND SEND THEM INTO A FRENZY. TO MAKE PEOPLE REMEMBER FOREVER THAT ONE PERFORMANCE…. 20 YRS FROM NOW WEN PEOPLE SEE HIGHLIGHTS OF THESE PERFORMANCES, THESE GAMES AND PERFORMANCES TELL THEIR OWN STORY. SEE, THERE’S NO NEED, FOR THE MEDIA TO OVER HYPE THESE. CAUSE THESE ARE PERFORMANCES THAT U CANT FAKE. U CANT MANIPULATE , U CANT TWIST INTO A LIE. U CANT BE BRAINWASHED INTO THINKING KOBE IS GREAT. U CANT BECOME A VICTOM OF THE MEDIA’S BIAS OR MANIPULATION OF A PLAYERS GREATNESS. U CANT RE-DEFINE GREATNESS OR FALSIFY THE REALITY OF UR WATCHING. KOBE BRYANT IS THE GREATEST BASKETBALL PLAYER IN THE HISTORY OF THIS GAME. PEE, EAR, REEEEE, ED! BECAUSE OF HIS PERFORMANCES. HIS ART. ITS LIKE, MOZART, MICHAELANGELO, BASKETBALL IS HIS CRAFT AND HIS A LIST OF HIS EVERLASTING ARTWORK.

    1. 46pts on the road at knicks in 2003. (every made shot in that game high degree of difficulty + baseline jam vs sprewell) no player in the history of the game, HAS EVER, NOR EVER WILL, TOP THIS PERFORMANCE. everything. lowpost, midrange, 3pt shooting, double team, triple team, fading away, pumpfaking, floaters, fall aways outta bounds. any and every kinda shot u want. the single greatest performance ever. fittingly at the garden.

    2. 37pts in game 6 on the road at phoenix in 2009 (every made shot in that game was impposible degree of difficulty)
    greatest playoff performance i ever saw in my life. by anybody ever. i’ve watched every playoff game for every playoff team since 1985 and im tellin u, nobody EVER put on a show like that before. remember, we’re talkin ENTERTAINMENT. not stats. we’re not talkin about Lebrons boring as dunks and layups with 25 free throw attempts, or jordans 52 shot attempts and 20 free throw attempts wen he scored 50. but we’re talkin pure showmanship and performance.

    3. 55pts at home vs wizards in 2003 (last game vs michael jordan,)
    kobe just embarrassed mike and the wizards.

    4. 62pts in 3 qtrs at home vs dallas 2005 (outscored whole mavs team by himself thru 3 qtrs)
    only player in the history of the league to outscore a team by himself thru 3qtrs. he had 8 total games in his career where he scored 50 or more pts by the end of the 3rd qtr. 5 of those games he sat out the entire 4th qtr.
    also phil jackson hated on kobe in this game…. phil spent more time trynna hold kobe’s game back than the haters, and shaq. its unimagineable how many 80pt games we missed out on. phil makes me sick…

    5. 65pts at home vs portland in 2007 (crazy baseline 3)
    great CLUTCH SHOTS IN THIS GAME..

    6. 81pts at home vs toronto in 2006 (26 first half, 27pts in 3rd, 28pts in the 4th)
    team was down by 18 in the 3rd. 55 points in 2nd half…. story was bigger than championship sunday in the NFL. never was celebrated or appreciated by the media and non laker fans because everybody was pissed still at kobefrom the shaq kobe break-up….. that was one of the sad moments in sports. but yrs later peoplestarted to appreciate him more. A DOLLAR SHORT AND A DAY TOO LATE. just my opinion. F*** the media.

    7. 61pts in 2009 at the garden again vs knicks (made spike lee laugh)
    enough said.

    8. 58pts in a loss on the road at charlotte (2007 fouled out in 3RD OT)
    one of the greatest kobe games ever. sucks they had to lose that one. but thats wat makes it great. even in a loss, with jordan (part owner) in the building, the fans still chanted MVP.

    9. 40pts on road at utah (7th of 9 straight 40pt games that yr. 2002-2003) embarressed kieralenko, malone and stockton

    10. 43pts on road at mavs 2005-2006 season. 28ft fadeaway 3 to win the game in front of dale harris.
    (he was the coach that hated on him wen he was a rookie and robbed us of kobe’s 1st 150 games. knowing kobe at the age of 18, was better than every 2gaurd in the league other than MJ, dale harris refused to give kobe the starting job for his first 2yrs. 150 games total. that was bullshit man…. if it wasnt for his teammates and coaches being jealous of him, kobes career avgs would be sick. his scoring avg as a starter is 28.5 for his career….)

    11. 51pts @ denver 2005-2006…. MVP chants in Den. kobe makes fans go crazy down south.

    12. 43pts @ boston 2005-2006…. MVP chants in Bos. classic kobe 7 three pointers. crazy reverse windmill

    13. there are soooooo many others. but, i gotta go to work. ur welcome for the education. KOBE 101 CLASS IN SESSION. ITS BEEN REAL………
