We here at Hoopdoctors are big fans of Kobe Bryant’s game. He is the total package: elite scorer, supreme defender, and proven winner. The NBA’s current overall best player in the game. Although he has nothing left to prove, his drive and desire to succeed is among the league’s best. In this new multi-part series we will take a look back at some hidden gems caught on video showcasing some of the “Black Mama’s” biggest and best moments in his HS and NBA career.

Part Four – The Fights

In this segment we have some footage of some of Kobe’s best tension filled moments. When a player like Kobe has such a passion for the game and a superior will to win, sometimes his emotions will explode in the heat of battle during a game. He has had his fair share of skirmishes, finger pointing and stare downs in his career. Most notable was probably his taking exception to Ron Artest’s over the top, hard nosed defense during last season’s playoffs or his actually taking a swipe at Marko Jaric of the Grizzlies a few years ago which earned him a suspension. Check out 3 videos of Kobe’s most famous fights.
