After getting his extra stretching in and talking with the media, Kobe Bryant was back on the floor working with player development coach Phil Handy. As Bryant drilled with Handy, assistant coach Chuck Person walked by and wanted a shot at guarding Kobe one-on-one.

After a couple jab steps and ball fakes put the Rifleman on his heels, the Black Mamba slipped to his right and flushed it home (much to the delight of support staff members JJ Outlaw and Kyle Triggs).
