It was a night when great centers were being remembered, so Kobe obviously had to get in on the action.
Shaquille O’Neal’s jersey had been retired at halftime, the Los Angeles Lakers were cruising to the win, Kobe Bryant had a triple-double and I guess he just thought, “Why not?”
With under two minutes left in the game, he drove across the lane and pulled up to display his version of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar‘s famous Skyhook. Kareem would surely be proud of the outcome.
Kareem’s been taking part in Splash recently, where he’s been showing off his diving skills. Kobe recently said he’d like to do some diving also – except with sharks. I wonder if he could convince The Captain to take a dive with him?
