The Bank is Open for Kobe on Friday Night

Not one to disappoint a national audience, Kobe Bryant made sure to book end the ESPN coverage of the Lakers on Friday night.

KB24 ended the first half with an off-balance, between two defenders, falling away jumper that banked off the glass and found the bottom of the net. Black Mamba’s improbable shot gave the Lake Show a three point lead over the Miami Heat. D-Wyade dropped two nasty dunks to get on the score sheet before the 15-minute break. But it would be Kobe who’d have the last laugh.

After a rarely seen Lamar Odom ejection via shoving match with Jermaine O’Neal, clutch shots by Wade, poor shot selection from D-Fish and Kobe, the Lakers looked dead in the water.

Long story short; Fisher hits a late three, Wade makes one of two from the line, Heat have a two point lead with 3.2 ticks on the clock…

Ah hem…

Enter the best closer in the game.

Kobe gives SportsCenter a symmetrical dueling bank shots; one for the half time highlights and one to end the night.
Some might say luck. I say luck is the product of hard work. Maybe he didn’t call glass, but his shoulders were square to the hoop and last time I checked the scoreboard is the only stat that matters.
