Kobe Bryant did it in a Lakers’ jersey. A lot. He’d lose his dribble at the elbow, go under the defender, pass the ball off the backboard to himself running the lane and finish, sometimes with a dunk.
The Lakers’ Kentavious Caldwell-Pope tried that Friday, but didn’t quite execute it as well — he missed the backboard entirely.
That’s ending up on Shaqtin’ a Fool.
The Clippers went on to win in Blake Griffin‘s return to the court, and the Lakers’ struggles continue beyond throwing the ball off the backboard.
