“Unveiling Kobe Bryant’s Toughest Opponents: Lesser-Known Insights into the Black Mamba’s Rivals”

During Kobe’s illustrious career, he has faced some of the greatest defenders the NBA has ever seen. But one man’s name stands out above all others: the “Kobe Terminator”: Tony Allen. Known for his toughness and knack for reading offensive players’ moves, Allen can defend even the best players in the league.

Being the defensive juggernaut that he is, Allen’s ability to make life hard for the best players in the league has been acknowledged even by the Black Mamba.

“I know what to do and he knows how to guard me. It’s just a matter of who can get the better of who consistently. There will be possessions where he does a phenomenal job. There will be possessions where I abuse him. It’s a fun battle to see,” said Bryant to Sportskeeda’s Mark Medina, who was with the LA Daily News back in 2015.
Allen played for 14 seasons in the NBA and even won a championship with Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce with the Boston Celtics back in 2008. His career averages were 8.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.4 steals a game.

Despite lacking the skills to be a huge threat in offense, Bryant knows his real work is on the defensive end. Allen even got the recognition by the league and was part of an All-NBA defensive team six times from 2011-2017.

“He’s fundamentally sound defensively and he plays harder than everybody else defensively. He has a competitive desire to compete individually. That’s very uncommon. Most defensive players I face want help all the time. I’ve never heard him ask for help. He likes taking the challenge,” Bryant added.

While Tony Allen was the best defender to challenge Kobe Bryant, Tracy McGrady gets the nod from the five-time NBA champion as the player with whom he had the most problems while on defense.

“There’s a lot of guys but the guy that always gave me the most problems, actually was Tracy McGrady. He had all the skills and all the athleticism, but he was 6-foot-9 and he was really tough to figure out,” said Bryant in a report by Fadeaway World.

A seven-time NBA All-Star and two-time scoring champion, Tracy McGrady averaged a game-high 32.1 points, 6.5 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 1.7 steals during the 2002-03 season.
