kobe through the years

i may not be a fan of the los angeles lakers but i do know that kobe bryant is one phenomenal player (and phenomenal might even be an understatement when it comes to the black mamba). so i scoured the interwebz for photos of bryant through the years. and without further ado, here they are:

if this is today, imagine how scary the hornets would be!

they know they are looking at the future of the nba

kobe: welcome to the league dwight

woah! is that jason kidd?! lol
he (kidd) kinda reminds me of a certain pro wrestler from this angle.
(ok, i included this not because of kobe but because of kidd. lol. but you have to agree that kobe's shooting form is on display right there.)

y'all know what's gonna happen next right?
another rim bender for the big fella and chalk up an assist for kobe

...and steve nash is not exactly a short guy

dare to compare?

and there you go, a glimpse on kobe's campaign in the nba. enjoy his game while you still can. as good as he is today, you can't expect him to be the same 3 or 4 years from now. godspeed black mamba and lakeshow!

this one's for you charles. :D
