Complex Says: What an awful pass. Allen Iverson, fronting Kobe on the right block, is generously listed at 6' tall in comparison to Bryant's 6'6". Tyrone Hill, on the other hand (and the other block) is 6'8". So when Kobe slips past Iverson and breaks towards the basket for an alley oop, which side of the rim would you expect Shaw to toss it to? Instead, Shaw inexplicably lofts it left, almost directly at Hill. But Kobe rises on the right, hovers towards the left, twists in mid-air in order to deny Hill the ball and finishes the oop. Maybe there's no such thing as a bad pass to Kobe.
