Lakers Examiner: I was searching all night and all morning for video or a picture of this, but I can’t seem to find it.
In the first half of the Los Angeles Lakers’ 115-110 overtime victory over the visiting New Orleans Hornets, fans witnessed something rarely seen at an NBA game.
After a fast break dunk by Kobe Bryant, Hornets guard Chris Paul gathered the basketball, stepped out of bounds, and inbounded the ball…..right off of Bryant’s back.
The ball bounced off of Bryant, who was running back on defense, directly into Paul’s hands, and he continued to dribble down the court without missing a beat.
You see this play all the time, just not in the NBA. It’s usually reserved for punk high-schoolers or members of the AND 1 Mixtape team.
It got me thinking about some other things that are done in pick-up games that should become regular occurrences in the NBA…
