Well, Fisher did save his ass from a backccourt violation lol
Easily my favorite.... perfect video to describe him.
I watched this game in it's entirety and it was awesome. Crazy they still blew a 3-1 series lead though.

Thanks for sharing that.
Dude was a warrior. If I'm going into battle I want guys like that on my side.
What I appreciate most about Kobe during the latter parts of his career that I overlooked earlier in his career was how much harder he had to work than all of his contemporaries.
I mean think about it, genetically speaking, he didn't have:
- LeBron's bulldozing physique, speed and endurance/durability
- Shaq's size and strength
- Jordan or VC's athleticism
- Durant or Giannis' unique ability to be a walking match-up nightmare
- Curry's cheat-code shooting abilities
- Kyrie or AI's speed and handles
- Kawhi or Scottie's gigantic palms for better gripping
- Magic's soft hands and passing skills...
...yet he managed to carve out of the best careers ever by incorporating a little bit of all the above through sheer hard work and determination.
Was Kobe really less athletic than MJ and VC? He was a superb athlete. He just didn't have MJ's huge hands and VC's freak long arms.
2001 Western Conference Finals. Went 33.3 points/7.0 assists /7.0 rebounds in sweep of Spurs.
I'll give you my worst.
Game 7 2010
final score Lakers 83-Celtics 79
Free throw attempts were Lakers 37 to Celtics 17
One of the main reasons i stopped following Basketball closely.
I'm a Spurs fan
Couple of things regarding that moment.
1. The defensive effort by Hill was terrific, it's just that Kobe was in the zone and there was no stopping him.
2. The reaction from that one fan afterwards (Closet Lakers fan?)
3. The Lakers got some playoff revenge on the Suns from 3 and 4 years earlier.
4. To date, this is the last playoff game the Suns have participated in.
