Kobe's Bryant's Namath-like guarantee that the Lakers would make the playoffs has some teeth now that the Lakers have broken the seal to the eight seed. Realistically, L.A. now has a shot at the sixth seed and Bryant's heroics have even given his MVP candidacy a real bump.

Kobe Bryant 3rd greatest ever, no way he's letting his team miss the postseason this late in his career.— Green Eyed Savage™ (@HarlemsRichKid) March 10, 2013
Lakers win! Dwight put up 16 points, grabbed 21 rebounds and blocked 4 shots. Oh, and the Lakers are now… instagr.am/p/WsaAyYtcg-/— Lakerholicz (@Lakerholicz) March 10, 2013
