First props to Kobe for the two most amazing back-to-back, end-of-game/OT shots EVER.
I would have bet everything against him making those 2 shots back to back with no one guarding himunbelievable! Hello Sacramento. Just when I was getting ready for my Jack Nicholson conversation (Jack sits right next to the visiting team bench and is always an adventure).
Instead I get to visit my boys Joe and Gavin. Great, great guys, and we always want to play each otherjust not in the first round. Its a tough business, not everyone goes home a winner.
The correct answer, confirmed by Stu Jackson today, is that it should have been a travel because it was not a shot. No attempt was made to actually make a basket. Since it was not a field goal attempt, it was a pass, and you cant pass to yourself off the backboard.
