Complex Says: 35.4 points per game. 2006 was the year that Kobe seemingly couldn't miss and Adrian Griffin found out the hard way. Down by one and thirty feet from the basket, four seconds isn't much time to make a move. Losing the ball even further from the basket with three seconds left is a problem. Recovering it only to find yourself draped by a defender with two seconds left should induce panic. One second to square up and take a shot while fading out of bounds is no time at all. But for Kobe Bryant, it's an eternity.
