This season will be Kobe Bryant‘s 16th and final Christmas Day game — that’s more than any other player in NBA history. He’s scored 383 points on Christmas, also an NBA record.
Before the Christmas Day games tip off for 2015, let’s take a stroll down memory lane with Kobe on Christmas. Including the time he dropped 42 on the Heat and Shaq (the year after Shaq was traded). Thanks to the people at the NBA for compiling this.
Enjoy, and remember Kobe will try to lift the Lakers past the Clippers (or, at least, make the game interesting), starting at 10:30 ET on ESPN. (For more breakdowns of the Christmas Day slate, you can read this or listen to the PBT Podcast.)
