What has impressed you most about Kobe Bryant's career? [Poll]
I'll have further analysis on this later on, but I thought throwing up a poll question would provide a sense of where fan sentiment lies.
With Kobe Bryant turning 33 on Tuesday, it was only natural for many, including myself, to wonder what else is in store for the rest of his NBA career. But his legacy right now stands impressive enough on its own: five NBA titles, two Finals MVP awards, one regular-season MVP, one Olympic gold medal, four All-Star MVPs, sixth place on the NBA's all-time scoring list and the Lakers' greatest all-time scorer ever. All taking place in 1,311 total games and 48,310 total minutes through 15 seasons.
What impresses you the most out of Bryant's accomplishments and what he's brought to the game? Answer in the poll below and I'll be sure to include your answers is my follow-up analysis.
