47. Kobe Sinks the Suns at the Buzzer

Date: 4/30/2006

There was nothing Kobe Bryant couldn't do with a basketball in 2006. Well, almost. Bryant scored 35 points a game that season, earning his first scoring title and the highest average the league had seen since Michael Jordan's 37 ppg 19 years prior. But perhaps his most impressive accomplishment was leading a team featuring Kwame Brown and Smush Parker to the playoffs in a competitive Western Conference. The 7th seeded Lakers exceeded expectations again in the first round as Kobe gave the Lakers a 3-1 series lead. Of course we all know how things turned out, but this memory still lives on in NBA lore.
