Video: Kobe Bryant Dishes His Nicknames for Thursday Night Hero Steve Blake

Joe FlynnContributor INovember 8, 2013

Steve Blake learned a valuable lesson Thursday night: You can sink all the game-winning shots you want, but you are not a true Laker until Kobe Bryant gives you a nickname.

Fortunately for Blake, Kobe already has given him a host of nicknames, including "Temper," "Problem Child," "8 Mile," "B-Rabbit" and "Lil' Feisty."

Blake earned every one of those nicknames tonight, sinking a game-winning three-pointer with less than two seconds left to send the Lakers to a 99-98 victory over former teammate Dwight Howard and the Houston Rockets
