Carmelo Anthony Gives Shout-Out to Heckling Lakers Fan after 24-Point Game (Video)
This Kobe Bryant Finger Roll Airball Will Leave You Shaking Your Head (Videos)
Good news and bad news for Lakers fans this weekend.
The good news? The Lakers finally won a game! On Friday they beat the Nets, who are technically a professional basketball team.
The bad news? Kobe “Five Rings” Bryant still sucks. He scored 18 points against the Nets and then another 18 in a losing effort against the Knicks on Sunday. However, to get to those totals he went 11-for-35 (.314) from the floor and 3-for-14 (.214) from beyond the arc, keeping his player efficiency rating at 12.7.
But just how bad is a 12.7 PER? Well, Anthony Davis currently sits 20th in the league in PER with a 23.8, and the last time Kobe was completely healthy he had a 23.0. So 12.7 is pretty bad.
In the Lakers’ latest loss, however, Kobe wasn’t just laying bricks from the perimeter. On Sunday the guy aired out a layup:

I bet you never thought you’d see a Kobe Bryant finger roll airball. But there you have it.
Personally, I have a hunch that it’s not over for Kobe, and that he’ll get things figured out at some point and be a reasonably effective 37-year-old basketball player. But right now? Yeah, he’s pretty hard to watch.
