In The Face: Kobe Cookies Chris Paul Then Dunks In His Grill
Dunk Score: 9.9
Despite being in his 17th season, 34 year old Kobe Bryant showed that he still has a little bit left in the boosties tank, after stealing a Chris Paul pass and proceeding to drive down the court and dunk all over CP3’s life, sending the Pro-Clippers Staples Center into a frenzy.
It was obvious that Paul was expecting to see the janky-legged Kobe driving towards the basket and finishing with some type of lay-up attempt, but Kobe has always been known as an opportunist and took advantage of one to skeet on the Clippers’ all-star guard and fellow gold medal winner.
Kobe may have won that battle, but Chris Paul and the Clippers won the war, smashing the Lakers for the 2nd time this season and sending the Purple and Gold 2 games below .500, with the Lakers on the outside looking in, securely holding 11th place in the West.
