At 36 years old, Kobe Bryant had Los Angeles Lakers fans on their feet after a reverse slam dunk in the first quarter of the Lakers loss to the Clippers on Friday night, which also happened to be on his former teammate Matt Barnes.
Did Bryant still know he had that in him, coming off a torn Achilles and a knee fracture?
I shocked the s— out of myself,” Bryant laughed after their loss to the Clippers.
Bryant says that despite his age, he feels very strong, though he didn’t realize he was that strong.
Bryant also discusses why he was pleased with tonight’s game, despite the loss (sentiments, we don’t normally hear from Kobe after a loss).
And, what sparked Bryant to say that he doesn’t want any “pushovers” or “chumps” on his team? It’s all in our post-game video above.
