This is the moment when Kobe shot to the top of my favorite Lakers (who were active at the time) list. There was already a bunch of hype. But the public wasnt sure about him just yet. Then in preseason, he does this. I saw this game live. I felt like I was one of the players on the bench, I jumped up and lost my mind. I was so hype! This was over Ben Wallace. The same Ben Wallace that would go on to win Defensive Player of the year. After this game, I thought to myself… I hope he keeps on doing shit like this.
