I remember this game like it was yesterday. Some of the best games I ever watched. R.I.P Kobe 👑

Amazing to watch how compact defenses were back then. The game has changed so much in a short time
Bc of curry and klay. Jp but it went from centers dominate the game to guards putting up unimaginable points bc of the 3 and their new wave of shooting abilities. If you cant shoot you wont go far
@@yeboid.p.3641 they’re not really putting up that much more points. And it has a lot to do with the modern offenses and analytics. But yeah, Curry and Klay are great shooters
@Dnero518 Anno fa
@@lukejanis2016 its funny cause this Suns team was actually one of the first teams to do the free to launch as many threes as u want at any time offense too when Dantoni was coach with his system a couple years earlier. They have two centers here with Lopez starting idk if thats cause they were doing that all season or cause they were facing Lakers twin towers but with Dantoni he liked to put Amare at center and surround him with shooters like Houston many years later with Harden and it made Nash and Stoudemires pick and roll game lethal. Mike Dantoni was actually way ahead of the whole analytics movement with spreading the floor, open the paint, rapid shooting offense he just never had a Curry and Klay but Steve Nash and Jason Richardson were close and Jared Dudley and I think even Frye all shot around or above 40% so Phoenix was the Splash squad lol. The big difference is Kerr is an all around great coach on both sides of the ball and Dantoni had/has a terrible reputation for not coaching any defense so his teams were usually ass on that end while Golden states great with Draymond as the anchor and Klay before was nice too on d.
@oppai9611 Anno fa
you got to guard curry at half court
@@Dnero518 Absolutely, Phoenix during this era were way ahead of their time. They were my favorite team for this style of play, even though they could never seal the deal. They paved the way for the current NBA, for better or worst lol
This is one of Kobe’s greatest playoff series! 34, 8, 7 on 52% fg and 43% 3ptfg. And also so many clutch shots.

@@saadk8905 That was in 06 buddy. It's a miracle he even got them to that point playing with G league players like Smush Parker and Kwame Brown; Kobe stopped shooting the ball in that series as a form of protest against the front office. This video is from 2010 where they went on to win the Finals.

Pau in his prime was something else. I knew he had great footwork, could back down, turn over the shoulder, shoot the mid, pass out of the double, etc. One thing I didn't appreciate until now was his ability to string a series of movements together so seamlessly when off the ball. Like he could set a screen, come off, go across the paint, line up with a driving Kobe, catch a tight pass, and lay the ball up in the same stride while maintaining his body control. This Laker front court was pretty unique, now that I look back on it. I know this isn't considered one of the great teams of all time, but I think their length/skill/mobility would give a lot of teams trouble.
@Youngguy2024 2 anni fa
He had no wasted movements or dribbles, everything was planned and he was always in control. And Kobe loved that cause he knows in order to have something that down pact u have to work on it everydY
Prime Pau is like a Jokic in MVP form
@csmooth202 Anno fa
Prime Pau with a healthy Bynum, and an aggressive Lamar Odom was tough to deal with.
Kobe put up: 34, 8, 7 on 52% fg and 43% 3ptfg and COUNTLESS clutch shots, and you're talking about PAU? Kobe would've won 2 more rings with freaking Zach Randolph if Pau wasn't there. Pau was a very good player but not a GREAT player. What did he ever do without Kobe? Nothing. And if anything, Kobe made him a better player the same way MJ made Pippen a better player by toughening him up and pushing him in practice, even to the point of physical confrontation. Pau was great, but he was a replaceable part (Lamarcus Aldridge could've done what Pau did for those Lakers teams). ZERO First Team all nba selections during his time with Kobe. Maybe one 2nd team all nba selection. Again, very good player but not great. And did not make the NBA's top 75 list.

What a great game. One of Nash's last playoff games, Kobe's last championship run, five hall of famers (Kobe, Nash, Phil Jackson, Pau Gasol, Grant Hill), a Slovenian rivalry (Dragic vs Vujacic), and such great versions of both the Lakers and the Suns.

Given that Nash was such a gifted passer, his ability to shoot was really slept on. I mean, the dude nearly averaged 50-40-90 for his career, which is mad.
@Anthonydu01630 2 anni fa
Same for CP3. And Curry and Kyrie are such gifted and efficient scorer that we forget they are great playmaker as well, especially Curry who don’t even have to touch the ball to create space for his teammates the guy is literally double teammed as soon as he pass the half court line lol

RIP Kobe and Gianna. Kobe fought a good fight winning all those games with the Lakes, win or lose you're still a SUPERSTAR, KING, of the LAKERS. You're our GOAT and we love you, Kobe. When the going gets rough, you still rise to the occasion and get the job done. There is no holding you back, pain, or no pain you're still on the court being the leader of the LA. Lakers. What a great leader you are, thank you for the examples you set for all of us to follow. Thank God for you Kobe, you're one in a million in a lifetime. Thank you, NBA for sharing these classic games of Kobe's.
I was a huge Suns fan during this period and OMG the heart break, but I loved watching the Steve Nash/ Kobe duels in the mid to late 2005 to 2010 period of time
I remember watching this as a kid ...such a heartbreaking loss this was the best season for Phoenix to win a championship...

Would say that 2006-2007 was their best team and chance. This was their last shot. Nash was 36 and they didn't have Marion but he still carried them this far.
Thank you Kobe for keeping the Fans on their feet as only you can. Thanks for never giving up when the chips are down. You're one true friend, and thank you for teaching and showing everyone who ever dreamed of being a basketball player the art of the game. Thank you for showing all those who will come after you what it means to play and play hard to win. Thank you for teaching all of us to stay focus on the goal because the reward is at the end of the game not in the middle. Thank you so very much for loving and caring enough about the game to work hard and level your game each and every day. And to those who will dare to follow in your footsteps, that much always be prepared to win at all cost. Also that they much have a winning attitude, stay focus and horn their craft, through practicing and practicing hard, playing and playing hard to be a winner and leader. Thank you, God, for Kobe and the Lakers. Thank you again, Kobe, for we miss you every minute of the day.

I remember watching this 2010 NBA Western Conference Finals on TV Live when it actually happened. Fun series, to the eagle eyed viewer there is a lot of interesting things to look for in this series. This is the last NBA Western Conference Finals that Kobe Bryant plays in his illustrious NBA Playing Career. This is the last season to date the Phoenix Suns have made the NBA Playoffs. This is Amar’e Stoudemire last season has a member of the Phoenix Suns. So those are some interesting things about this game, you may have not known or remembered.
Now the suns made the playoffs and the conference finals
What is it ?
@huntno Mese fa
Since your comment, they've made the playoffs every season and will likely continue to do so (this season at least)
08-10 Lakers' hustle was crazy. Solid starters, also the bench played their roles so good.

Wow this game seems like it was yesterday. I was 16 now I'm 28, it's funny to think some people couldn't get over the fact that Shaq was really gone from the Lakers and was traded 5 years ago at that point. It just shows how fast time can really go by
Alvin Gentry casually puking in his mouth and then explaining to Dan that he just puked in his mouth then spitting the puke into a towel on the bench is absolutely timeless.

Love this game. I saw it when I was twelve. So impress with the last shot with Kobe and Artest. beautiful game🎉🎉🎉
this the most poetic game ive ever watched 😭
I miss this Laker squad. Kobe surrounded by good vets and a young + deep bench is championship material.
Being an old school fan this was already an ers I did not enjoy as much but compared to today this is way more beautiful. The players act much more mature.
I love Ron postgame interview “just play ball” he knew he took a bad shot but like he said that’s a shot he’s once made plenty times just didn’t fall but he kept playing and ended up with a game winner..
