In Kobe Bryant's view, the 2005-06 season was not his best campaign. Despite scoring 81 points in a single game and averaged 35.3 points per contest, the 2005-06 season is not what Bryant considers his greatest year—it's the 2012-13 season that marked the beginning of the end of his career, via Baxter Holmes of ESPN: "It's the season where I ruptured my Achilles, actually," he says. "Because I felt like I was playing the best basketball I've ever played in my entire career." Lost in that disastrous season was one of Bryant's greatest individual years. The then-34-year-old averaged 27.3 points per game on an efficient 46.3 percent from the field and dished a career-high 6.0 assists per game. He also scored at least 30 points in 10 consecutive games, the longest streak ever by an NBA player after turning 34 years old.
