Lakers video: Kobe Bryant’s game winners in two minutes
After 20 seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers, Kobe Bryant retired following a 60-point performance against the Utah Jazz. Since retirement, Bryant is focusing on building up his businesses as well as story-telling, which was featured on ESPN during the 2017 NBA playoffs.

During the course of 20 seasons with the Lakers, the five-time champion made 36 game winners. Although Bryant has been criticized for his shooting percentages during these type of situations, there are very few who are willing to take these shots for their team.
In the 1997 playoffs, an 18-year-old Bryant airballed four shots in the final minutes against the Utah Jazz. While this experience may have discouraged most young players, Bryant believes it ultimately shaped him as he established himself as one of the best clutch players in league history.
Bryant averaged 25.0 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 4.7 assists in his career.
