Kobe Bryant’s insane game-winner over Dwyane Wade was four years ago today [VIDEO]

Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

Before the Big Three aligned in South Beach, and before the Lakers won back-to-back NBA championships, Kobe Bryant scored one of the craziest game-winners of his career in a early season game against the Miami Heat.

Cast your mind back to December 4, 2009. It looked like the Lakers were about to have their seven-game winning streak snapped by Dwyane Wade and the Heat – however, as usual, the Black Mamba had other plans.

Kobe managed to get himself free to receive the pass from Ron Artest – now Metta World Peace – and dribbled to the middle of the court. He then took off from one leg and somehow managed to bank in a buzzer-beating and game-winning three-pointer over the outstretched arm of Wade.

Here’s the ESPN broadcast with Mike Breen, Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson on the call:
