Celebrate Kobe Bryant's Birthday With His Best Plays Against Each & Every NBA Squad

Including buzzer-beaters, posters and more.

By //Sports

Today marks Kobe Bryant’s 39th birthday. Recently catching some comical heat for his post-retirement dad-bod, the “Black Mamba” has earned the right to live life to the fullest after contributing twenty seasons to the NBA. Bryant’s highly decorated career consists of five NBA Championships, two NBA Finals MVP trophies, a Most Valuable Player award, 18 NBA All-Star selections and a lot more.

In honor of Bryant’s birthday and “Mamba Day” which is tomorrow, the NBA has gathered his very best plays against all NBA teams that existed during his NBA career. This includes teams before and after relocations such as the Seattle SuperSonics, Vancouver Grizzlies, Charlotte Bobcats, New Orleans Pelicans and more. You’ll also find outstanding plays from a ton of buzzer-beaters to his poster-worthy dunk on Dwight Howard and a sick windmill against the Chicago Bulls as he competed against Michael Jordan. Take a look at Kobe’s amazing highlights above and let us know your thoughts.

Happy Birthday, Kobe Bryant.
