D’Angelo Russell accidentally does perfect Kobe impersonation

Wednesday December 9th, 2015

The Lakers were shooting around ahead of their Wednesday night game against the Timberwolves, and D’Angelo Russell accidentally pulled out a perfect impersonation of teammate Kobe Bryant.

The rookie was engaged in some friendly one-on-one when he told his opponent he was about to unleash a Kobe impersonation on him, which he quickly followed up with an airball, as captured by Mark Medina of the L.A. Daily News.

Bryant is shooting just 30.6% from the field this year in his 20th and final season in the NBA.
