Kobe Bryant: beating Celtics in Finals was ‘enjoyable’
"It’s more special because it was the hardest one to get," he said. "The Celtics are a great, great team. They gave us a challenge. I think that’s what makes it so enjoyable."
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: No doubt about it, it had to be sweet.
After all, Kobe Bryant didn`t just win the NBA Title -he beat the arch rival Boston Celtics in a seventh game thriller to capture consecutive championships and the fifth Larry O’Brien trophy of his career.
This was necessary for Bryant to be an all-time great Laker. He had to beat the storied Celtics. And he had to redeem himself and the Lakers’ for their 2008 NBA Finals loss to those same Celtics.
Bryant responded, preserving through bouts of poor shooting, numerous injuries, and the green-and-white’s air-tight defense.
All that’s left is for Bryant to enter MJ territory with a three-peat next summer.
