VIDEO: Kobe Bryant dunks on Nikola Pekovic, lives to talk about it
Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant goes baseline for the dunk on Nikola Pekovic.
This is Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant. Perhaps, you've heard of him. He used to be a high-flying superstar who would wow you with reverse dunks on Vincent Yarbrough or Dwight Howard or Ben Wallace. Over the last few years, he has been much more grounded because age does that to you.
However, once in a while, Kobe is able get that giddyup in his step and throw down some dunks on unsuspecting players.
The drive to the baseline on Thursday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves was an example of this. Nikola Pekovic was slow to cut off the baseline and gave Kobe too much room to go up on the strong side of the basket. And if you give Kobe an inch, he'll take a bucket.
This wasn't exactly Harrison Barnes detonating Pek, but it was a solid dunk on a big man.
