Breaking: Kobe Is Good At Shooting Basketballs, Makes Ten Straight 3-Pointers (Video)

In what sure is to be the viral video from the NBA today — unless some other player one-ups Blake Griffin’s seated mid-court shot from the other day by slam-dunking from their butt — above is Kobe Bryant putting on an impressive shooting display by making ten consecutive three-pointers from beyond the arc. Nice. Apparently, one of the best shooters in the NBA can shoot the basketball.

If only Chris Paul were on the Lakers and the NBA hadn’t nixed that trade. Imagine CP3 feeding Kobe the rock in real live NBA game action and shot after shot going in. And it would have been good for the Lakers for Kobe to drain shot after shot after shot, because if you recall the details of the trade (Pau Gasol shipped to Houston and Lamar Odom off to New Orleans) there wouldn’t have been any Lakers big men around to rebound any of his missed shots. Yeah.
