This Paul George dunk looks eerily familiar, doesn’t it? Almost as if one of the game’s greatest pulled off a similar, though more impressive, dunk years before. Oh, wait a second.
It’s honestly a little startling how similar these two moments are; not just the dunks, but the circumstances leading up to them as well.
Both Kobe Bryant and George were the recipients of long, precise outlet passes at almost the exact same spot on the court with a defender right on their tail. In each instance, the defender manages to get in front of them as they collected the pass, but both stars use an advanced move to get away: Kobe opts to go behind the back while George employs a spin move.
