Arguably the second best shooting guard in NBA history, Kobe Bryant, also referred to as ”the Black Mamba”, has secured the number 3 spot on this list with several different achievements. His most notable moment is probably his 81 point game, which – behind Wilt’s 100 point game – is the second most points in one outing.
Kobe Bryant has set records, smashed records and continues to do so. At the age of 34 – and in his seventeenth year in the league – Bryant averaged 27.3 points, 6.0 assists and 5.6 rebounds per game. With one more year remaining on his contract, Kobe has confirmed he will give his sixth ring hopes ”a few more tries”, therefore, we sure haven’t seen the last of him.
