Kobe won the MVP over Garnett in 2008, when Boston won 66 games. Nash won in 2005 over MIA's Shaq and in '06 over CLE's LeBron.
I still remember Amir Johnson's career game in Kobe Bryant's return from Achilles rupture two years ago.
Kobe had a 31P, 12A, 11R triple-double in LAL's Nov. 30 W over Toronto. LAL are 28-8 all-time vs. the Raptors, never lost a season series.
Steve Nash won MVP awards than Kobe, George Mikan, Isiah Thomas, Jerry West, John Stockton, Elgin Baylor & Patrick Ewing COMBINED.
Jordan Clarkson's game-winning FT's against Minny don't have the same feeling as Kobe's here that broke MJ's record 3 months ago
T-Wolves coach Flip Saunders said they considered drafting Kobe in 96, but unsure of having two high schoolers after drafting Garnett
Flip said the Wolves -who drafted Ray Allen, traded him for Marbury in '96- considered taking Kobe but weren't sure about 2 high schoolers.
Asked Flip Saunders about the careers of Kevin Garnett and Kobe: said the biggest similarity was their constant + intense competitiveness.
They Call me young Kobe bc scoring is my ishh booyy 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Does Blake Griffin get mobbed like Kobe Bryant when he goes to China? "I’m sure it’s terrifying, but it’s not like that for me."
Clarkson becomes the 2nd Laker to reach the 30-point mark this season (Kobe). He's 12 of 18 from the field, 4 of 6 at the FT stripe.
To the Raptor fans credit I will say they are cheering as wildly tonight in Detroit as I have seen them cheer in Toronto for Nash or Kobe
With Kobe, Durant, Rose hurt & Nash retired, only 4 healthy former MVPs in league. Duncan, Dirk, LeBron, Garnett. Dirk v Duncan tonight.
Kobe Bryant recently shared that he still talks to Lamar Odom and the former Laker is ‘doing good.'
