This play probably doesn't work in High School, but against the Hornets?

No problem.

The video starts so quickly and the play is so strange that it's hard to figure out what the hell is going on. Does credit really go to Kobe for tricking the Hornets? Dantoni? I can't imagine you'd actually draw up a play intending the defense to forget which basket they're guarding.

Just came here to post that. How does that even happen in a 2 point game with less than a minute left? Where's a coach to scream at the Hornets?

I was watching the highlights last night when that came on, and I couldn't figure out what was happening.

Did the Hornets simply forget which end of the court they were defending?

Wanted to point to Hugh's fantastic Len Bias remembrance over on Metafilter.

WTF was going on with the NBA last night?

Crawford not playing tonight in Denver. Did he hurt himself throwing that lob? Worth it.

And as I'm typing this Craig Sager is telling me he injured an ankle in the first and kept playing.
