The defending champions face a tough task as they have to face their longtime rival Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals. Led by Kobe Bryant, the Lakers were able to get past the Oklahoma City Thunder, Utah Jazz, and Phoenix Suns to get to the NBA finals. 

Bryant has been nothing less than spectacular in the playoffs. He is averaging 29.4 PPG (Points Per Game), 1.0 SPG (Steals Per Game), 6.2 APG (Assists Per Game), and 5.1 RPG (Rebounds Per Game) during his team's postseason run.

Kobe Bryant at 31 years of age has carried this Lakers team to the NBA Finals.
