American professional basketball player who played his entire career in National Basket Ball Association (NBA) with the Los Angeles Lakers. Nicknamed the Black Mamba because of his accuracy in shooting the ball. He was also the youngest player in league history to reach 30,000 career points at the age of 34 years. In the summer Olympics of 2008 and 2012, he had won two gold medals as a member of the U.S. national team. He was also called “one of the greatest players in the history of our game” by NBA commissioner Adam Silver, while The New York Times also wrote that he had “one of the most decorated careers in the history of the sport.” Kobe Bryant spent his career primarily as a scorer, he scored a flurry of points in a lot of games, but we are in for those maddeningly efficient performances of Black Mamba. We bring you some of the top places, Kobe Bryant played best of his career, in honor of the legend, hoping that his soul rests in peace.

Something Bryant did in 2010 where Orlando Magic’s Matt Barnes and Kobe Bryant bumped each other and argued back and forth became one of his most memorable moments. Bryant stood directly in front of him on defense, Barnes took the ball from a referee to pass it inbounds and quickly faked throwing the ball right in Bryant’s face but Bryant didn’t move at all. He kept his position and didn’t even flinch. This crystallized his reputation as a cold-blooded star without fears.
