Kobe Bryant has been the most clutch performer since Michael Jordan retired.
Kobe has numerous game winners, and is currently has the most for active players, with 29.
Kobe and winning go together like peanut butter and jelly, and it's no surprise that he has five championships, currently tied with his running mate Fisher for most for any active player.
Kobe always seems to know when to start to take over, and it's usually in the fourth quarter that he puts his stamp on a game. Be it with points, rebounds, or assists.
This season, he had seven game winners and three buzzer beaters. To put that into perspective, that is more than what Lebron James has in his whole career.
Kobe has been a model of clutch play since 2000, hitting multiple game winners, game tiers, and buzzer beaters to win it for his team. One of his most memorable ones was when he put one into Rip Hamilton's eye during the 2004 NBA Finals, a three-pointer that tied the game up and sent it to OT, where the Lakers eventually won (the only game for that series).
Bryant is a lock for the Hall of Fame, as very few players have his resume. He very well could be the second greatest shooting guard of all time.
