NBA Twitter goes crazy after a wild Kobe Bryant stat, proving his offensive dominance, goes viral.
Kobe Bryant was one of the greatest players to have played in the league. His sheer competitive spirit and the crazy passion for being the best version of himself at any given time was what set him apart from his opponents. Bean dedicated uncountable hours starting his day at 4 in the morning, took hundreds of shots in the gym to perfect his craft, helping him reach the pinnacle of the game. Because of this, Bryant is one of the most accomplished players of all time.
For over two long decades, the Black Mamba kept preaching his famous Mamba Mentality, while instilling the same mentality in all of his fans from around the world. For anyone who followed Kobe’s career would instantly get inspired by the various little things he would do, in order to be the best.
Ever since Bryant stepped onto the hardwood as a young 18-year-old kid, he immediately showed everyone what an incredible offensive threat he was. Considered to be one of the most prolific scorers of all time, Kobe, on several occasions did the unthinkable. Like the time he put up 81 points on a Toronto Raptors team. Or the time when he outscored an entire Dallas team in three whole quarters. Or the final time he ever set on an NBA court, dropping a 60-piece on Utah Jazz.
NBA Twitter reacts to a wild Kobe Bryant stat, proving his insane offensive dominance.

As soon as this unreal Kobe stat went viral, NBA Twitter went crazy. While a few fans complimented the legend, there was a group of people who discredited Bryant for the same because he “didn’t pass the ball to his teammates”.
Greatest scorer the league has ever seen. Don’t tell me it’s KD either.

That’s cause he didn’t know how to pass the ball, he was a scorer that’s it, a very one dimensional player….

Clearly, there was or will never be any other player quite like Kobe Bryant. He tragically passed away in a helicopter crash on 27th January 2020. Some people have still not recovered from this shocking news. Bryant may have gone, but his legacy is always going to live on.
