Kobe Bryant has been the best post season performer for a few years now. Nobody can debate that.
From his dribbling, to his jumper, to his defense, there really is nothing Kobe can't do.
Just look at these playoffs, where he has averaged: 29.4 PPG, 6.2 APG, and 5.1 RPG.
In the Western Conference Finals, he nearly averaged a triple double, with averages of: 33.0 PPG, 9.6 APG, and 7.4 RPG. Pure dominance.
It seems like the bigger the stage, the better Kobe Bryant plays. I'm sure he will get his against the Celtics, it's only a matter of shot selection.
He's the main cog in the Lakers' offense, and can definitely play defense, he has the skill set to be the best in the game, and I firmly believe that he is the best in the game today.
