In terms of playing both sides of the court at a Hall of Fame level and wanting to win by any means, he's just like Jordan. Bryant hurt his ankle in Game 2 of the 2000 Finals vs. the Pacers and missed Game 3 but came back for Game 4 with 22 points in the second half and hit the game-winning shot in OT with Shaq fouled out of the game.
In the 2009 Finals vs. Orlando, Bryant averaged 32.4 points, 7.4 assists, 5.6 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 1.4 blocks in the series, making him the first to average 30 points and 7 assists since Jerry West did it in the 1969 Finals and the first to put up 30 points, 5 boards, and 5 dimes since His Airness. During the 2010 Finals vs. Boston, Kobe had a horrible Game 7 offensively, but snatched 15 boards and scored 10 points in the fourth quarter to win his fifth championship.
