Top 8 Statue Ideas to Capture the Essence of Kobe

Whether imposed in a statue or not, the moment the final buzzer of the 2010 NBA Finals sounded will be apart of Lakers history forever. It wasn’t just a regular championship victory – it was the sweetest one imaginable, as it was a game seven victory over the Lakers longtime rival Boston Celtics.

June 17, 2010 - Los Angeles, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES - epa02208487 Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant celebrates after the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Boston Celtics 83-79 to win their 16th NBA Championship at the Staples Center in Los Angeles California, USA 17 June 2010.

As the waning moments of the game neared, and it became clearer and clearer that Kobe would be receiving his fifth championship title very soon. And upon their victory, Kobe found himself on top of the Staples Center scorers table, celebrating with a passion and enjoyment that did not exist in his mentality during the NBA Finals. It was the one thing Kobe HAD to do if he wanted any shot at becoming the greatest Laker of all-time, and that was taking down the Celtics in the NBA Finals.

Although still present in very recent memory, the image of Kobe standing on that table, facing the crowd, has quickly become one of the most iconic images in Lakers’ history. Shout out to John Equihua, Jerry Banuelos, J.L. Regalado and Chris Avila for suggesting this idea on the Lakers Nation’s Facebook page!
