BronThe social media universe is already on fire with “Kobe dunked on Lebron” comments, however after you watch the play again it really is nothing special. Kobe essentially was quicker than Lebron, and was able to “avoid” a block. One way or another the All-Star MVP got the best of the two superstars on this play. My favorite is the courtesy butt slap attempt by Kobe to say “wow, that was close… screw you, I’m still better.”

Kobe Bryant had this to say about the play:

“That was funny, actually I saw it coming and I wanted to see if I could avoid the LeBron chase down. But I told him afterwards, if I had tried to go over the rim, like get up, he probably would have blocked it with his armpit. So I just tried to be quick and just tried to time it up just the right way. And I managed to do it, I kind of snuck it by him.”
