During round one of the NBA’s postseason, we all thought that Kobe Bryant was on the down side of his career. Playing through various injuries, Kobe missed shots, turned the ball over and was portrayed by the media as an aging athlete, whose golden days had passed.

Everything changed when the Lakers moved to the second round. Against the Jazz, Kobe reminded all of us what type of athlete he is. Kobe, a four-time NBA champion, returned in a dominant fashion, scoring 30 points or more in all four Lakers games to lead his team to a sweep of the Utah Jazz.

The look on Bryant’s face in interviews these days says it all. He is as tough, both physically and mentally as we ever saw him. He seems focused and determined to carry his team to another title this year.

Kobe is just one title away from Magic’s five and two from the immortal, Michael Jordan. Will this year bring more accomplishments to Kobe’s luxurious collection of legendary feats? The look on Kobe Bryant’s face can give you a clue.
