Default Where do you rank Kobe's '09 Finals



Kobe's stats in 2009 finals: 32.4 PPG, 7.4 APG, 5.6 RPG, 1.5 BPG, 1.5 SPG, 44% FG, 84% FT, 37% 3PT FG. Not to mention Courtney Lee and Mikeal Pietrus (very good defenders) were gaurding him and Dwight controlled the paint! Kobe really dominated this series.

Videos to come in the next few days...quite remarkable and for those that didn't watch....this dominance trumps any of Michael Jordan's....to MJ's credit he had 3 dominant Finals but peak Finals performance?...this beats out MJ's.

His Finals wasn't that impressive but it certainly was one of his better ones. I would say it was his 2nd best Finals performance with 2002 vs. the Nets being #1.

True. This trumps any of MJ's performance.

Praise our GAWD and MJ fans should convert too. F*ck em non-believers!

he shot 43% and 36 from 3, but i guess it was 2 mitakes by your keyboard...
no one will remember those finals, people will remember that Garnett was injured and the Celtics could not repeat.

Off the top of my head...7th best finals since 1999. Kobe has played better. That wasnt his best series that season. Not that I think this was a question/topic to be taken serious.

Good but not legendary. It's hard to rank a 43% shooting performance up there any where close with the great final performances of all times unless you are doing something crazy like nearing a triple double. There have been many better.

Ahhh yes, the "Bynum wouldn’t have made a difference in game 6" argument.

Truly pathetic.

How about game 2 (the Powe show remember?) and game 4. Bynum wouldn’t have made even a little bit of difference, kiddo?

To be fair here, the Celtics was built with 3 Hall of Famers to beat one Kobe Bryant.

Celtics were a very good team and it took 3 Failed Lead Dogs to do it.

I can't really recall any superstar being slayed like that besides Kobe.
