Stephen Curry nails deep three over Kobe, who shows some respect (VIDEO)


That shot was what vintage Kobe Bryant used to do to defenders. Kobe is a competitor, he respects that.

Midway through the third quarter of the Warriors throttling of the Lakers in a Sunday night preseason affair, Kobe decided to pressure Stephen Curry out high. Way out high, well beyond the three-point line. Curry uses his forearm to create a little space then uses his quick release to drain the deep three over Kobe.

Kobe gives Curry the little “tap on the butt/nice shot” sign of respect coming back up the court. Well played by both of them.

(Things that should worry Lakers fans about this season: Kobe is your best perimeter defender.)
