Kobe Bryant Was Vintage Black Mamba In Preseason Action

With no NBA action under his belt since December. Kobe Bryant looked great in the Lakers 2014 preseason debut scoring 13 points on five-for-12 shooting with five assists. Kobe even dove into the crowd once for a loose ball.

“He just looked like Kobe,” said Lakers Coach Byron Scott. “The way he was moving, the way he was able to do that patented fall-away, take advantage of his length and his size against some of the guys that they had on him.”

Of his performance Kobe said, “I felt fine. I felt like I could do anything I wanted” and he’s not exaggerating. His turnaround jumper and off the dribble jumper looked like video footage from years ago.
