Yesterday we told you how on the closing night of the legendary Drew League in Los Angeles, Kobe Bryant showed up and did his thing — 43 points and drained the game winner over James Harden.

Now, thanks to Ball is Life, watch every one of Kobe’s points from that night.

The one thing that really stands out to me: Just how smooth Kobe’s footwork is. He abuses everyone in the post. His moves are practiced, without a hitch, just fundamentally sound. Go ahead and hate on Kobe all you want, but admit that the man is a master of the craft. Few NBA players before or after worked as hard to become as polished as Kobe Bean.
