Kobe Bryant’s Top 10 Games

As most know by now today is the one year anniversary of the tragic death of Kobe Bryant. Kobe is one of the biggest names in the history of basketball as well as one of the best players. In honor of Kobe I wanted to do something that takes your mind and puts it on the positive things that Kobe did and that was dominate on the basketball court. It’s damn near impossible to narrow it down to just Kobe’s 10 best games, but I’m going to try to. If you all have games you enjoyed, different games, or thought they were greater feel free to comment at the bottom of the page.
