Wow. Kobe haters are going to have a tough time hating after what went down last night in Milwaukee. Five seconds to go, down by one, basketball’s Mariano Rivera took it right to Charlie Bell, gave him a little fake before shooting a fadeaway as the clock turned zero. Game time. If I was a Bucks fan, I wouldn’t even be mad. Bell played him the right way and had a hand in his face, but Kobe is just unguardable – especially in a game-winning situation like that.
This made me wonder: Is there any single defender in the NBA right now that would have prevented Kobe from making that shot?
