Appreciate the genius of Kobe Bryant with the best plays of his career

Put your feet up for a few minutes and see why the basketball world will be so much worse off without Kobe Bryant.

IT WON’T BE the same without him.

He’s made it to 7 NBA Finals, winning 5 of them (part of the three-in-a-row Lakers side of 2000 – 2002).

He’s a 2-time NBA Finals MVP.

He is a 17-time NBA All-Star.

He scored 81 points against the Toronto Raptors in 2006 – the second-highest number of points in a game in NBA history (Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game in March 1962).

He’s a 2-time Olympic gold medallist.

And we’ll miss him.
