Defenses play him better overall in that stage.

Kobe is a good playoff performer, but terrible in the Finals (by his standards). Either the guy isn't all that he is cracked up to be, or he's really "chasing it" - and by that, I mean the Finals MVP. Could be both, not really sure.

It doesn't help that he played against two all-time great defenses in the 2004 and 2008 NBA Finals.


bwink, you should post Kobe's finals stats in each of his Finals opposed to doing a total average.

His first three Finals weren't that competitive. LA played teams they were clearly better than and demolished them. Plus they were Shaq's first title shots so he got way more touches in the Finals.

And then in the last three Finals Kobe played top defenses in the league in each matchup. Number 1 ranked Orlando in 09 and an all time great defensive team in Boston in the other two years.

Every team Kobe played in the Finals was a defensive minded team.. 08-10 Celtics, 04 Pistons, 02 Nets, 01 Sixers, 09 Magic.. theyall relied on great D to win. He never got the Mavs in the Finals..

You can go to basketball-reference website and get each individual Finals stat line.

Kobe vs. 2001 Sixers
46.8 mpg, 24.6 ppg, 5.8 apg, 7.8 rpg, 1.4 spg, 1.4 bpg, 3.6 topg, 41.5% fg, 84.2% ft, 33.3% 3p

I was more curious about Kobe's Finals numbers in the first 3-peat with Shaq. I know for the most part what Kobe's numbers were in the Finals against the '04 Pistons, '08 Celtics, and the two other teams he won the title over.

Not really 09 Magic. Yeah the defensive rating say otherwise, but honestly, their greatest strength was offense.
