24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
Kobe Bryant had 22 points on 6-for-19 shooting and 8 rebounds in the Lakers 107-87 loss to the Rockets on Thursday night, but it felt like fans walked away as if the Lakers won yet again this season. Truthfully speaking, when it comes to the Lakers, this season is all about celebrating Kobe’s greatness. The losses are almost irrelevant at this point.
Last night the Mamba gave fans something to talk about other than his legacy though.
During the third quarter Bryant blew past former teammate Trevor Ariza and threw down a nasty one-handed jam on Rockets forward Clint Capela sending Staples Center into a frenzy. It was a vintage Kobe moment which he admits even he was surprised by.
