The NBA Finals just seem a little weird without Kobe Bryant, so the Black Mamba made an appearance despite not playing in the actual game.
Appearing on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show Sunday night, Bryant took on two year old, YouTube sensation Titus Ashby who recently beat Shaquille O’Neal in a “free throw contest”.
Bryant appeared to “short arm” the vast majority of his shots on purpose, but it was still a comedic watch, just for the entertainment purpose of it all.
Bryant hit four of his shots from 18 feet out on a 6’6 hoop while the two year old Ashby also hit four shots of his own, though, on his own personal 3 foot hoop from six feet out. Ashby became “famous” when a video of his “trick shots” were posted on YouTube a few months back, a video that has now been viewed over 12 million times:
