Well he's still the only guy to have done it. That's more worthwhile than a half court shot to me. At least it's a record of some kind, and not just a random shot.

Who else has made a three in a real game with their off hand? Rasheed attempted it once or twice but that's as close as he got.

Kobe is the only player you who can still make those Bird-esque left handed shots and not hurt his team. Insane talent.

Thumbs up to Kevin Love for a record that nobody cared about.

Great he beat the record by 1 foot by standing alone in a hangar and throwing two handed prayers. And it took him 98 tries. The previous record (held by Baron Davis) was a one handed buzzer beater during a game and with a defender trying to prevent the shot. And it was nothing but net.



Reminds me of another great record from Sport Science: Sasha Vujacic shooting 80% from the FT line while standing on stilts and wearing gloves the size of Shaq's hands. He's the only one who did that and that's so worthwile.

Greatest left hand out of any guard that's ever played. The level of difficulty of these shots is off the charts. Bird and who else makes these?

Like I said earlier, if you can hate on a player that is this skilled...you must have some really poor taste.

It doesn't matter. There has never been a more skilled player then Bryant...except perhaps Bird.

LOL. Considering Kobe's moves are just a dumbed down version of Jordan's, I think not.

Kobe is the most skilled player I ever coached - Phil Jackson

You think you know more than a coach who has coached both players in their primes?

Kobe haters stay sinking lower and lower.
