Kobe Bryant didn't even think he could do what Shannon Brown did in the Lakers' 102-84 win over the New Orleans Hornets on Sunday.
In the second quarter, the Lakers reserve stole the ball from Hornets guard Jarrett Jack and started a fast break. He jumped up and as he sailed through the air, Brown switched the ball from his right hand to his left and slammed it in.
Brown reportedly said he had done the same dunk in the 2010 contest, but it wasn't as "flashy."
"I give it a 10, no question. It was just ridiculous," Bryant said after the game. "His explosiveness is out of this world. I don't know if I could do that."
