Today is the great Kobe Bean Bryant’s birthday and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the man than to watch some clips of his greatest performances, games, moves, blocks, dunks and game winners. I was pretty much watching these all morning and afternoon, and since I actually have to get some work done this afternoon, I’ll pass them along to you guys. Try and forget about the lockout for the day and talk, discuss, and share your favorite Kobe stories and moments.

By the way, SLAM tweeted this Kobe slide show this morning. It features all of his covers on the SLAM and KICKS magazines. Now, on to the videos, some of which have been shared here on FB&G in the past.

Here are a few of the best hodgepodge high light videos of Kobe

Here are all of Kobe’s buzzer beaters from the 09/10 season

Some of Kobe’s best dunks of his career (I miss the days of the 360)

Remember when he scored 62 points through 3 quarters against Dallas?

And then he scored 81 just a couple weeks later.

Check out some of the best blocks of his career

Last, but not least, one of my favorites. A compilation showing off his footwork.
