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.

    You state: “Enter the best closer in the game.”

    You mean that he just rapes the other teams. Like really bending them over and gets out unscathed. Or is dat hotel maids? Now you got me all confused and stuff.

    Ahh, you must be a championship-less Lebron James fan.

    Lost in all the hoopla of Kobe’s game winner was this dude in the front row who couldn’t clap or raise his arms in elation because he was busy scratching his balls.
