I love this story. To me it perfectly encapsulates what made Kobe Bryant who he was. When the lights were brightest and it was go time he knew it and he delivered. Like, hey Shump, nice game young fella, but it's mine now
And there was nothing he could do about it. That was Kobe. Ultimate competitor. Warrior. Assassin. Everything you want in a big time athlete. Maybe the last of his kind in the NBA. RIP to one of the greatest.
