We all remember Larry Bird using only his left hand against Blazers. He says he was “saving his right hand for the Lakers.” Bird ended up with 47 points, 14 rebounds, and 11 assists.
Kobe using his left hand, however, was not a choice, but the only option. Bryant tore his rotator cuff after throwing down a dunk against the Pelicans in 2015. Instead of calling it quits, the Mamba came back in, and made an impact with only his left hand! Kobe ended up with 14 points and despite the loss, Kobe showed why he will always be remembered and a true competitor.
