I wonder if Derrick Rose would agree that Kobe has lost a step, being it was Kobe’s first step that blew by him liked he was nailed to the Staples Center newly stained cherry oak hardwood floor.
Kobe’s lift was enough to have him start on one side of the rim and end on the other with an authoritative two handed slam.
This particular dunk looked eerily similar to those dunks from Kobe back in a time where the ‘fro was flowing and he sported a single digit on his jersey.
Eerily similar might be a stretch, but Kobe’s moment of renewed athletic ability wasn’t too far off.
Kobe wasn’t done putting on a show this past Sunday.
