Kobe's short memory serves him well

Kobe Bryant didn't win the Lakers' final regular-season game against the Portland Trail Blazers with 1.1 seconds left in regulation when he triple-pumped that leaning 3-pointer in from beyond the top of the key.

He didn't win the game with one second left in double-overtime on a turnaround, fall away 3-pointer with Ruben Patterson tapping him on the wrist.

He won it seven years ago when, as an 18-year-old rookie, he stood all alone at the top of the key in a second-round elimination game against the Utah Jazz and airballed two potential game-winning shots and the Lakers lost.
