Goat: Kobe Bryant
Game: Game 5, 1997 Western Conference Semifinals
Real talk? It's probably even odds at this point that Kobe Bryant goes down as the greatest of all time (yeah, we said it). Another dose of real talk? The Lakers weren't gonna win this series (they were down 3-1 going into this game). But real talk, Kobe? First-year teenagers aren't supposed to jack up two airballs in the playoffs, much less four. Which leads us to our last bit of real talk (what is this, 2005?): Hey Rook: Stop shooting the effin' ball!
