Now, thanks to Ball is Life, watch every one of Kobe’s points from that night.
The one thing that really stands out to me: Just how smooth Kobe’s footwork is. He abuses everyone in the post. His moves are practiced, without a hitch, just fundamentally sound. Go ahead and hate on Kobe all you want, but admit that the man is a master of the craft. Few NBA players before or after worked as hard to become as polished as Kobe Bean.
