Since it was Kobe Bryant‘s 37th birthday on Aug. 23, the Lake Show Life staff decided the best gift we could give Bryant would be to discuss some of our all-time favorite moments of his.

Each staff member has a unique favorite memory of Bryant’s illustrious career. There are plenty of other great moments and still more to come. Unfortunately, we cannot cover them all.

It would have been easy to choose his 81-point performance against the Toronto Raptors on Jan. 23, 2006. However, that would be too easy. That would be cheating.

With that said, here’s a look at some of our favorite “Black Mamba” moments. Happy birthday, Kobe!
