One of the most epic dunks of NBA history Kobe Bryant 2001 dunk. LeBron James is getting praise for replicating the exact same dunk.
The L.A. Lakers have been very active in the tributes to legendary Kobe Bryant after passing away in a helicopter crash.
The dunk however was not intentional as a tribute LeBron James admitted he hadn’t actually practiced the dunk.
“I didn’t really predetermine that either until I jumped,” said James. “I just jumped and kind of figured it out, and then … it’s crazy how it’s the same exact dunk, the same exact hoop that Kobe did (it on) — what, 19 years ago or something like that? That was nice.”
