Kobe Bryant with the flying acrobatic reverse layup vs. Knicks (VIDEO)

26 Comments

Late in the first quarter of the Lakers Christmas Day matchup against the Knicks, Metta World Peace terminated the dribble out top, and Carmelo Anthony was overplaying Kobe Bryant on the wing defensively in an attempt to deny him the basketball.

Bad idea.

Bryant faked Anthony one way, then cut backdoor, where World Peace found him.

With Tyson Chandler coming over to help, Bryant opted for the reverse layup, flying from one side of the rim underneath it to the other, where he converted the acrobatic layup for an extremely entertaining two points.
