Kobe Skills Academy: The Left-Handed Shot
Remember last summer when Kobe wanted to work on defense? All that paid off because he was able to get in the passing lanes better and was a better help-defender. All that weight he shed that summer enabled him to dunk a gang, too. However, his position defense suffered a bit because of his smaller size. Can’t have everything.
Well this summer, Kobe told KCAL 9 that he worked on his left-hand shooting ability, particularly for his interior game. I’m not sure exactly why if he was hitting left-handed shots like this a few years ago. I’m sure he wants to revisit these this season.
