Interesting to see that the all-time head-to-head is so close, though GP has the edge.

28 Games, head-to-head.

Kobe: 20.9 PTS, 3.5 AST, 4.9 REB, .429 FG%, .269 3-PT%, .831 FT%

GP: 21.1 PTS, 4.5 REB, 7.6 AST, .467 FG%, .345 3-PT%, .708 FT%

I don't remember how often they guarded each other or for how long a stretch during games, but the numbers seem to indicate they played each other fairly even before GP got old. In fact, GP has the advantage.

If you look at the numbers, it wasn't uncommon for Kobe to shoot below .429 against Payton teams. So i don't know that Kobe was making GP look "foolish" very often.

Payton was lost all day. He didn't know where Kobe was. The off the ball play by Kobe was fantastic that game.

Fisher had some great passes that he normally couldn't make but Bryant got in position.

What in holy hell are you talking about?! Three minutes into the video haven't seen Kobe make an assisted basket!

LOL Payton has always been an overrated defender. The glove? More like The Sieve.

Overall Payton >> Kobe though. I'll give him that.
