Last day to vote for Kobe Bryant to win at the ESPYS


Today is the last day to vote for Kobe Bryant to win “Best NBA Player” at the 2013 ESPYS.

Before tearing his Achilles in April, Bryant was averaging 27.3 points, 6.0 assists and 5.6 rebounds per game. In December he averaged 33.8 points per game and he followed that up with averages of 30.5 points, 7.0 assists, 6.5 rebounds, 2.2 steals and 1.2 blocks per game while playing 45.2 minutes a night during April.

Bryant averaged six assists per game for only the second time in his career. Passing was really a thing for Kobe in 2012-13. Bryant also became the first player since Jerry West in 1970 to score at least 40 points and dish out over 10 assists in back-to-back games.

Up against Kobe in the Best NBA Player category are LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Tony Parker and Carmelo Anthony. You can vote for who you want to win by clicking here.

The 2013 ESPYS will be televised tonight on ESPN at 6:00 pm PST.
