Data Visualization Kobe Bryant's shots

Visualizing Every Shot Kobe Bryant Has Ever Made

To commemorate Kobe Bryant’s retirement from basketball, the Los Angeles Times has created a data visualization mapping out every shot Kobe has ever taken in his career, excluding free throws. The color-coded visualization allows users to filter the data by made or missed shots, shot type, opponent, or season. Users can click on specific points of the visualization to see additional information such as distance of the shot and date made. The visualization calls attention to some of the major highlights of Bryant’s career, such as buzzer-beaters, shots from his career-high 81-point game, and shots from his final game.

Take a look.
