The “Black Mamba” has been in playoff mode lately aiding the Lakers to their 7th consecutive victory and 15-1 since the All-Star break. Along with Dwight Howard in the East, Kobe has been named the Western Conference Player of the Week. Here’s a glimpse into what Kobe has done recently:

Bryant paced the league in scoring, averaging 36.3 points, in leading the Lakers to a 3-0 week. In the process, Los Angeles extended its winning streak to seven games. On March 22, Bryant scored a season-high 42 points to go along with 12 rebounds and nine assists in a triple overtime victory over the Suns. It was the 107th 40-point game of his career.

Not bad considering Kobe recently sprained his ankle a few weeks ago against Dallas; calling it the “worse sprain” of his career. The Lakers have 10 games remaining on the schedule and look poised for a very strong playoff and championship-defense run.

Congrats to KB24.

    Love kobe, but the MVP honour should go to D ROSE this year. He lead the team to maybe the best record in the league and atop the eastern conference. No one pictured them to be better than celtics or heat.
