Kobe Bryant: The 15 Greatest Moments of His Lakers Career

It's hard to believe that Kobe Bryant has been in the league for 15 seasons. He was once a high flying 17-year-old rookie with a mega-watt smile and now he's a 32-year-old veteran who will retire as one of the 10-15 best players in league history.

Assuming we may not have much of a next season to watch, there's no shame in reflecting on the greatest moments of Bryant's career. It's even more fitting we do as the Basketball Hall of Fame inducts a new class this weekend because soon, Bryant will be there one day.

It was almost impossible to narrow this list down and so many great memories were left on the cutting room floor. Lakers fans will no doubt add to this list with their own ideas of Bryant's greatness.

The list is in chronological order so after some honorable mentions, we'll start with the moment that began it all.
