Kentavious Caldwell-Pope tries to throw pass to self but misses backboard

Kobe Bryant did it in a Lakers’ jersey. A lot. He’d lose his dribble at the elbow, go under the defender, pass the ball off the backboard to himself running the lane and finish, sometimes with a dunk.

The Lakers’ Kentavious Caldwell-Pope tried that Friday, but didn’t quite execute it as well — he missed the backboard entirely.

That’s ending up on Shaqtin’ a Fool.

The Clippers went on to win in Blake Griffin’s return to the court, and the Lakers’ struggles continue beyond throwing the ball off the backboard.
