When the season is over, Kobe Bryant needs to send those doctors in Germany that performed the experimental Regenokine procedure a thank you card, some extra cash and anything else they please. Because, thanks to them, Bryant is looking like that guy who was drafted back in 1996 and rocked the No. 8.

During last night's game against the Atlanta Hawks, Kobe drove to the lane, late in the 4th quarter might we add, and threw down a high-flying jam with Josh Smith trailing. The dunk brought everyone from the Lakers bench to Staples Center crowd to their feet and rightfully so.

"Vino" is definitely looking like someone who's gotten better with age.
