Pretty great story from Jalen Rose right here — talking about how you’re not supposed to Bruce Bowen your opponents, except for the one time he did that exact same thing to Kobe Bryant in the 2000 NBA Finals. And though Jalen equivocates a little bit at the end there, claiming he’s not really sure if he stuck his foot under Kobe’s on purpose of not, watching the play makes it pretty obvious.
Just look at how Jalen juts his leg out, basically mirroring the worst Bruce Bowens that Bruce ever Bowened. Pretty anti-cool move.
However, as Jalen said, eventually Kobe Bryant hung 81 on a Jalen Rose team a few years later. And knowing Kobe, he probably did it because he remembers spraining his ankle on Jalen Rose. That guy won’t let anything slide, especially not one of the jerkiest moves you can pull on a basketball court.
