If you play ball, the most difficult aspect of that move to be aware of is how all of Kobe's momentum is carrying him forward, stopping on a dime and he plants and didn't move his pivot foot even slightly.

Even as he gathered after the pump fake to jump and contort his body to angle towards the basket on the jump shot.

For comparison sake, the next play Dirk hit a clutch shot. But he traveled. As Metta face guarded him, Dirk swung the ball through and moved his pivot foot in the process.

Yea. Precision is what separates goods from greats in every aspect of life.
