Kobe Bryant may be 34 years old, but he still has the athleticism of an 18-year-old.
Late in the fourth quarter of the Los Angeles Lakers’ 92-83 win over the Brooklyn Nets Tuesday, Bryant noticed the shot clock winding down and decided to drive to the hoop. He went around Gerald Wallace who was guarding him man-to-man, and then dunked on Wallace and Kris Humphries in an electrifying finish.
The dunk was so impressive that even the opposing fans at the Barclays Center cheered in response.
Bryant finished with 21 points in the win, which gives the Lakers 10 straight victories over the Nets. Kobe has actually had some other highlight-reel dunks this season, so this wasn’t his first jaw-dropping moment in the past few months.
