3. Kobe Bryant
The numbers for Kobe Bryant are simply staggering. He finished his career third all time with 33,643 points and a career average of 25 points a game. Kobe won an MVP in 2008 but, even more impressively, he finished top 5 in MVP voting all but one year between 2002 and 2013. There was the 81 point game, second most points all time in an NBA game, and of course there was the 60 point finale to end his career.
And the winning — there was plenty of that, too. Kobe was 7–1 in Conference Finals and 5–2 in the Finals, winning five rings with Shaq and Pau and grabbing two Finals MVP awards on top of the rings. Throw in two scoring titles and 12 All Defense teams and you have one of the game’s all time’s greats.
