    Nice play. Earlier in his carrer he would have dunked that ball. But still, pretty nice.

    There was something that seemed unnatural about the speed at which the ball released from Kobe's hand towards the backboard (almost like a sped up special effect), but I can't figure out why that would be.

    That's actually a pretty smart play. He got a much closer higher percentage shot.

    Did he get an assist or an offensive rebound?

    That play is prove he has lost a couple steps. In the past he would of dunk that crap. Damn I feel old.

    Why do some of you think this is illegal?

    Did you miss T-mac throwing it off the backboard and dunking it?

    Kobe has done this before and someone else did it too.

    Yeah, it was definitely sped up. I'm guessing the maker of the video added it for some effect (not sure why exactly). But, you see this kind of manipulation in a lot of youtube highlights, especially during crossovers and drives to the basketball.

    it's not illegal because his feet never touched the ground

    anyways, this wasn't even that good...

    T-Mac made that shot famous in the all star game some 9 years ago

    He would've dunked if it was 6 years ago.
    However he can still do amazing stuff at the age of 32.

    I've tried this a few times in pick up games and the ball flew right over me on the bounce back almost 100% of the time. This move sucks and I hardly ever get picked after that.

    I don't think so. If you look at Grant Hill or Fisher jogging under the screen, their speed didn't change one bit. Kobe just threw it extra hard.
