Hey Bleachers! Kobe Bryant has just turned 33 and in order to honor his great career, I have researched, analyzed and ranked each one of his game winners or buzzer beaters. During his long 15 season career we've seen it over and over again. Kobe just being...Kobe.
In his 15 seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers, Kobe has made 27 game winners in order for the Lakers to get that win. Three times he knocked down game winning free throws so that narrows the list down to his number, 24. The toughest part came when I tried to find all of his game winners. I could only find 21.
For the criteria, it will be ranked in a list from one to 10. The criteria goes as follows:
How difficult the shot was?
How much time was remaining?
What did it lead to?
In the case of a tie, the ranking will go further in who was the defender? For example, if Ron Artest was defending the game winner would be ranked higher than if Jose Calderon was defending.
Let's move on!
