Top 5 Lakers Games in January will feature Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol, Derrick Rose, Blake Griffin and Stephen Curry.
Thunder at Lakers, January 8
Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are two of the greatest Kobe admires out there. Durant even publically attacked the media for being harsh on Kobe in recent years, and then he went out to have a dinner with him before the game. That didn’t stop Durant and Westbrook from routing Kobe and the Lakers. If Kobe can do something better this time around, the Lakers might have a chance to be in the game. The Lakers vs Thunder game is number five in the Top 5 Lakers Games in January.
Rockets at Lakers, January 17
Since Kobe announced his retirement, Dwight Howard said that even though they didn’t get along in Los Angeles, he always had admiration for Kobe. And in the past few years since Howard is wearing Rockets uniform, Kobe has said few times that Howard is soft and criticized the center. Maybe now, in his last season in the league, Kobe will be gentler towards the center. Getting to see the duel between Harden and Kobe at the shooting guard is just the cherry on the icing. The Lakers vs Rockets game is number four in the Top 5 Lakers Games in January.
Bulls at Lakers, January 28
This will be a nationally televised game, with Derick Rose, Pau Gasol and Jimmy Butler coming to Los Angeles. Gasol has been back to LA after he left the team as a free agent to sign with the Bulls, but this time, it will be different. He will be playing against Kobe for the last time in Los Angeles. There is an emotional moment there, but there is also the intrigue of seeing Jimmy Butler against Kobe Bryant. Butler is another young shooting guard that wants to be the best, and if you look at some of his recent comments, they remind you a lot of young Kobe who sounded arrogant and cocky at times. And same as young Bryant, Jimmy Butler defends his words with actions on the floor. The Lakers vs Bulls game at the Staples Center is number three in the Top 5 Lakers Games in January.
Lakers at Clippers, January 29
This will a second game of a back-to-back set, so Kobe might not be playing. However, given the fact that the Lakers play at home the previous night, and they stay in the same town, coach Byron Scott might let Kobe go. This will be the first time the two teams meet after their Christmas matchup. The Lakers are the host of the Christmas match up, and the Clippers are the host of this one. Even if Kobe doesn’t play, city rivalry between the Lakers and the Clippers is more interesting in recent years, particularly with the rise of the Clippers and the downfall of the Lakers. The Lakers vs Clippers game is number two in the Top 5 Lakers Games in January.
Warriors at Lakers, January 5
The last time these two meet, the Warriors routed the Lakers 111-77. It was on the second night of back to back, so Kobe was given a rest. After the game, Kobe said that even if he was playing, he wouldn’t have made much of a difference. This time, the Lakers are home at the Staples Center for five days before the game, and they will have a day off for rest. Add in the fact that Kobe is playing better in his past five games, averaging 25 points to go along with 5 rebounds and 5 assists, and you might get a great matchup. Kobe himself has admitted that he can’t get to the spots he wants as fast he would like to, but he can still get to them. And then you have one of the fastest players on the opposite floor in Klay Thompson, who believes he is the best shooting guard in the league now. Sounds good enough? The Lakers vs Warriors game is number one in the Top 5 Lakers Games in January.
