Lets Not Forget Where This Trick Shot Originated

Kobe Bryant vs. Lebron James. Lebron James vs. Kobe Bryant. Whos behind the backboard shot is better? Who gives a rip? They are both shots that are equally as difficult. However, let me remind you where this shot started this year:

It is time for other players who do the exact same thing as Lebron and Kobe to get some credit. It is funny how when both of these two players do miraculous shots, other players who have done the same thing get shoved to the side. Had Rondo not started the trend of shooting the ball from behind the basket, would their be any debate as to whether Kobe’s or Lebron’s was better?

In fact, shame on me for not bringing this back even further to Marco Belinelli who did the same shot last year:

Eh, whatever. It will always be the same for every sport. I am sure there are players who make better throws than Tom Brady and Peyton Manning in football but would never get the time of day if these 2 threw the same miraculous pass.

If you are interested or have not seen them yet (I dont feel like hogging up the whole front page of Hardwood Houdini to put them up) you can see Kobe’s shot here, or Lebron’s shot here.
