Top Five Kobe Bryant Crossovers

3. The number three spot features the Lakers’ Pacific Division rival Phoenix Suns. In front of the purple and gold faithful, Kobe Bryant is being guarded by Shawn Marion, but not for long. Kobe crosses and shakes off Marion for a clear path to the basket, allowing him to finish the highlight reel play with a slam dunk. (And in the process, he makes Marion look like a baby giraffe learning how to walk.)


2. Coming in at number two as one of Kobe’s crossover victims, is another member of the Phoenix Suns. This time Kobe Bryant’s victim is Grant Hill. In an NBA playoff game at STAPLES Center, the Mamba stuck the sun once again. The crossover started at the top of the three-point line and Grant Hill ended up stumbling at the free throw line. Although Kobe would not finish the dunk, then-Laker Josh Powell was there to put the miss back with a thunderous dunk.


Next: Bryant… to SHAQ!
