Kobe Bryant Hurdles Over a Row of Fans During Lakers-Suns Game (Video)
Picture this: You’re sitting in the front row of a Lakers game, minding your own business, maybe even eating a Wetzel’s Gourmet Pretzel or sipping on a Bottomless Souvenir Soda, when suddenly, out of nowhere Kobe Bryant hurdles right over you.
That once-in-a-lifetime scenario played out for a few Lakers fans in attendance during last night’s game against the Phoenix Suns. While chasing a loose ball out of bounds in the third quarter, the Black Mamba kindly hurdled over a row of courtside fans, rather than crash right through them at such a high speed. The decision nearly cost Kobe his knees, but it almost certainly saved at least one person’s life.
For those who haven’t seen it, here’s Kobe Bryant soaring over a row of fans at the Staples Center last night:
Kobe appeared to be walking a little gingerly following the play, but he would be fine, finishing with 39 points and 9 rebounds.
You know who wasn’t fine? The Lakers. They lost again, this time by a score of 112-106, dropping them to 0-5 on the season.
