June 21, 2010 - Los Angeles, CALIFORNIA, United States - epa02215233 Los Angeles Lakers player Kobe Bryant gives the thumbs up, as he holds the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy, during the Lakers Victory Parade in Los Angeles, California, USA, 21 June 2010. The Lakers defeated the Boston Celtics to claim their second consecutive NBA championship title. Over 500,000 fans lined Figueroa Street as the Lakers players road in flat-bed vehicles through downtown Los Angeles.

Leading his Los Angeles Lakers to a second straight NBA Championship Kobe Bryant once again cemented his status as best in the NBA, furthering his legend as one of the best ever to do it. Sure Kobe had a lot more help than usual but still number 24 looked more and more like number 23 in his dominance of the game. Kobe put on his fifth championship ring (one less than Jordan) but he couldn't even fit it on his swollen finger. Kobe didn't just carry his team he carried injury after injury as he played through the pain en route to comfortable victory. Where else can you put the best but number one? Said and done!
