The Los Angeles Lakers were outpaced most every step of the way against the Golden State Warriors, but Kobe Bryant was able to show once again why this has been a turn-back-the-clock-style year for him Monday night.
Kobe dunks. The Lakers trail by 21 still.— Dave McMenamin (@mcten) March 26, 2013
This dunk was just one of many throwback slams that Bryant has pulled off this season, giving us all a reason to believe that whatever miracle knee procedure he had done in Germany is really just him drinking from the fountain of youth.
Bryant hasn't had great lift on his jumper tonight, but he forgot about the ankle on a massive reverse jam.— Mike Trudell (@LakersReporter) March 26, 2013
Kobe Bryant threw down a powerful reverse dunk. Unfortunately for the Lakers, the basket is still worth only two points— Mark Medina (@MarkG_Medina) March 26, 2013
Filthy old school @kobebryant dunk.— Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) March 26, 2013
For Bryant, it might have been just two points, but for the rest of us it was a treat. For a 34-year-old man to elevate long enough to go up and under the rim, double-pump and throw it down is something to behold.
I doubt there's another 34-year-old who would have to duck in order to avoid the rim.
