Kobe’s greatness continues to soar

Kobe Bryant has truly accomplished some amazing milestones this post-season. Recently, in one of his best playoff series in his career, he knocked off the rival Suns by an epic performance hitting clutch shots that left their head coach scratching his head and wondering if that was Kobe or Jordan out there.

The Suns, despite their valiant effort, shouldn’t be too upset. Kobe has reached milestones that have rivaled the all-time greats to ever play the game. Check out some of these milestones here.

  • Kobe became the Lakers all-time leading scorer in the playoffs; passing Jerry West.
  • Kobe became 4th leading scorer in playoff history; passing Karl Malone.
  • Kobe became Lakers franchise leader in playoff games; passing Magic Johnson.
  • Kobe tied Kareem for most playoff games with 30 or more points.

One last great milestone left for Kobe’s legacy is to do what ALL Laker-greats have done — beat Boston in the finals.

    “One last great milestone left for Kobe’s legacy is to do what ALL Laker-greats have done — beat Boston in the finals.”

    Technically, not all Laker greats have beaten Boston. Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Gail Goodrich, and Wilt Chamberlain never were able to beat those greenies. But I believe this time around the Lakers are a better team than the Celtics. They were not a better team than the Celtics in ’08, and they were not a better team than the Celtics in the ’60′s up until ’69 when they inexplicably lost to them in a Game 7 at the Forum.

    This time the Lakers can and should beat the Celtics.
