Kobe Bryant Dunks on Teammate Antawn Jamison (VIDEO)

In practice…

Kobe Bryant says that his body hasn’t felt this good since 2006 (the season he erupted for a career-high 35.4 points a game), and Bean showed that his hops are still there during practice yesterday, by soaring over a helpless Antawn Jamison for a monster finish.

    You’re welcome.


    Guess he heard Dwight say he was too old to dunk!

  • Shifty

    Shiiiit. And here I was hoping he was loosing his hops.

  • danpowers

    nice throwdown. but call it a dunk on jameson? jameson just happened to be jogging next to kobe when he dunked. not really a dunk ON jameson

  • ByAnyMeansNecessary

    The second dunk was definitely a dunk on Jamison even though he didn’t jump.

    I can’t front, I wasn’t expecting much fro. This video but the Mamba looks like he’s got his lift back. Can’t wait for the season to start.

    the second one man

  • JR

    He yoked on him.

    Kobe always looks like a 28 year old at the beginning of the season. We always talk about how good he looks, then the end of the season rolls around…..

  • Max

    As long as he can do these, there’s no reason to retire!

  • rainman

    this is the truth. People forget how good Kobe looked in the preseason after getting that treatment to his knees, he killed it in all those summer pick up games (or whatever u call em) if i recall he dropped liek 50 or 60 in one of the games, and he had his hops back too. But by the ttime the season ends hhis game is grounded more or less. Although that was a brutal shortened season so…

  • russian guy

    He played 39 minutes per game last year,thats way too high.He should go for more like 30-33,although I guess Kobe won’t want that.

  • Arthur

    Reminds me of when Jordan was with the Wizards and wouldn’t come out of games, even though he was wearing himself down and jeopardizing the team’s chances. Kobe’s roster is much better, of course.

  • danpowers

    oh thanks didnt watch that far. dang! kobe found some time mashine or what?

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    he always looks like this at the beginning of a season. he really takes great care of himself in the off-season.

  • JR

    Everyone talks about how great everyone looks. Everyone in the NBA had offseason knee/hip/back treatment in Germany, everyone’s lost 15 pounds of fat, everyone gained 15 pounds of muscle, and everyone is primed to either take their game to the next level or regain their all-start form. Regardless, that jam over Tawn was pretty sweet, practice or no practice. Hopefully with the depth the Lakers have, Kobe will be in good form come playoff time, it would make for better theatre.

  • Jerome

    nice defense before the first dunk. a preview of what’s to come this season from Lakers?
    good ups tho.

  • pposse

    jamison equates to scrub! he can’t play on good teams, watch!

  • LakeShow

    I wonder who will be starting at shooting guard for the Lakers this year?…

  • bike

    One day he talks about retirement; the next he says his body feels 6 years younger. Which is all fine and well except it will be confusing for Dwight-who simply wants to be loved and accepted.

  • mick

    lakeshow just spunked

  • Conor

    Ever played professionally, after eighteen seasons (Playoffs taken into account) of physical taxation, at nearly 39 minutes per game? No?

    Well-rested, the Bryant of this season will be superior to the past two. Playing-style will probably be similar to his Playoffs of 2010.

  • Conor

    And he was still scoring forty against the Thunder, on the ground.

  • Anti_republicans

    Fuck Kobe Bryant getting spoon fed to every championship

  • rainman

    Well, he was also a part of the problem as to why the Lakers got creamed against OKC , lets be honest with ourselves.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    why don’t you ask yourself that same jackass question, you’ll get the same answer.

  • ByAnyMeansNecessary

    Well-rested? Did you miss the Olympics? You know they were played just 8 weeks ago right? He’s 34 and regardless of how the knees feel, the minutes add up. If he’s smart, he’ll play less minutes and lean on Howard, Gasol and Nash.

  • TR

    “We talkin bout’ practice?”

  • Kadavour


  • shutup

    Kobe looked good Twan looks like dogshit; slow in rotation and doesn’t have much lift at all.

  • justin05

    As a real Laker fan, this is a bittersweet video. Kobe looks good but imagine what Griffin and Lebron could do to Jamison. 20% of current NBA players have to be more athletic than Kobe so no bueno. Looks like another year w/ a crap bench.

  • Conor

    The last time he played with this routine was in 2008-2009. It ended up being one the greatest playoffs you could search on his resumé. .

    He just strained a shoulder, likely after his performance during yesterday’s Lakers practice (wherein Howard played full-contact scrimmages with the team). The preseason doesn’t matter. They have 82 games.

    My prediction of their eventual record, however, remains at 98-0.

  • Conor


    **Along with 2001-2004, 2006-2010, 2012. Of sixteen seasons, that’s impressive. And proves he is consistent both in preparation and minutes. That is the key at this point.

    Metta World Peace will surprise people this season.

    “Ever played professionally, after eighteen seasons (Playoffs taken into account) of physical taxation, at nearly 39 minutes per game? No?”
