Kobe Bryant may have said the Los Angeles Lakers were “old as s—,” but his 34-year-old body isn’t preventing him from making athletic plays. The Black Mamba stole a pass from Chris Paul and then dunked on the Clippers point guard to make a statement early in Friday’s game at Staples Center.
We see dominant plays like that on a fairly regular basis, but when you consider that Kobe is in his 17th season in the league, that sort of athleticism is impressive.
Guess those knee doctors in Germany sure know what they’re doing, huh?

In the first quarter of the Lakers game against the Clippers, Kobe intercepted a pass and took off on a fast-break. That’s when he delivered a vicious dunk. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzGolkfK2Ak&feature=youtu.be Chris [...]
As I noted in my summary of Kobe Bryant’s incredible duel with Chris Paul, the following dunk was just one of Mamba’s many statement plays from Friday night. Personally, I think I most enjoyed the Iverson-esque crossover he used to shake free from Matt Barnes and drain a clutch 20-footer… but the dunk is definitely a close second thanks in large part to the shock factor involved...
“They’re very spectacular. They’re fun to watch. There’s no question about it,” Bryant said Thursday before going a step further. “They have higher jumpers than Showtime, though.”
…Bryant deemed the Clippers championship-worthy.
“Oh, for sure. They’re definitely one of the top contenders,” he said, crediting Chris Paul and Blake Griffin.
“[Paul] is extremely...
Considering that only one team led from start to finish, Friday’s battle for Los Angeles was unsually captivating. Though the “visiting” Lakers were badly outplayed — they trailed by 19 in the fourth quarter and by double digits for approximately half the game — Kobe Bryant, who dropped 16 of his game-high 38 during a cold-blooded fourth-quarter rampage, should’ve had...

The Clippers had grown tired of the losses to the Warriors this season and thumped them 115-89 Saturday night. Chris Paul in particular was fired up about the game and wanted the...
LOS ANGELES -- In the span of one season, the Los Angeles Clippers have transformed from a two-man army, The Blake and Chris Show, into a deep squad, with one of the best benches in the NBA. Every so often, though, the stars come out at night and light up Staples Center. Against Kobe Bryant and Co., it was bound to happen. Chris Paul had a double-double in the first half and...

Did the Clippers surpass the Lakers in one night? No. Not at all. Los Angeles is still a Lakers town.
