Kobe leads the Lakers to the Finals: With L.A. nursing a five-point lead with 35 seconds left Bryant, wearing Grant Hill as a sweater, canned a 23-foot turnaround from almost the same spot. As Alvin Gentry stepped onto the floor to call a timeout, he patted Hill on the back and told his frustrated star good defense. Bryant stopped and fired back at Gentry, "Not quite good enough."
Now it's Lakers v. Celtics in the 12th edition of one of the great rivalries in sports.

Kobe drained TWO of those "everyone on me, jumping backwards, off-balance" shots in the final minute. And they were swishes, too.

In both cases, I yelled "Holy sh*t!" at the tv.

Note to Lebron James: THAT is how you will your team to victory, even when the momentum has shifted in the other direction.

Do you think that Lebron was watching? He should have been.
