            I love the attention to detail in this series. For example, you state that Karl Malone is "proabably" set to retire. He did end up retiring after that season, but his case was unsure at the time. Really keeps the audience watching these videos "in the moment".

              I remember the interviews leading up to this. Shaq called Kobe a “corvette heading into a brick wall.” Kobe’s response, “Shaq knows I don’t drive corvettes. More like Lamborghinis”

                  And now Damon Jones says stupid things about basketball for ESPN. You also conveniently left out the Karl Malone/Kobe's wife thing. But i'm sure that had nothing to do with him leaving the Lakers 😂Lastly, to all the Kobe fans out there who like to call him the GOAT, i hope you all were listening to the part about 6 shots to tie or win games and he missed them all. Not to mention the 39% field goal percentage 😉

                        A Black Mamba always asks permission before doing it's thing with you in a hotel room. Kobe quite possibly doesn't. #Snakes1Bean0

                            This was probably my favorite NBA season out of the 2000s. Lots of fun storylines. Lakers crashing after being dominant, the Suns with Nash, the Mavs actually being pretty damn good without Nash, the Heat being instant contenders, the Pistons title defense, Malice at the Palace, an awesome Eastern Conference Finals, and a pretty good Finals too.

                                            This was a hard game, lakers fan forever and Shaq was my all time fav. It was one game i didnt root for anybody. Kobe is my 2nd fav ever, this was one of those games.

                                              I like the videos except they all seem to end all of a sudden right at the climax... It would be nice to have an extra minute for a final take of what happened and the aftermath.

                                                            Did any other Suns fans see that 23-3 record and immediately burst into tears or was that just me?

I would come from the angle of what a disgusting display of bullshit it was and how he wasn't retiring and nobody, even the Marlins, didn't want him and he had been a laughing stock of the league for a long time leading up to it... But you do you.. I'll love it either way.

I'm impressed you really set the scene for this great moment even thought he didn't make it. Most other content creators would have passed on this for just that.
