Well... He Can't Rap

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls.

At some point during the third quarter of last night's Laker game, I was asking myself the same question that Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan was asking himself: Is there anything Kobe Bryant can't do?

Not on a basketball court, apparently. He got his 52 points last night by shooting deep threes and driving for dunks, he can shoot inside with both hands, can drive equally well left or right, has a pull-up jumper, a tear drop, whatever he needs to score.

But to make Jerry feel a little better after his team's a 30-point loss last night (because we are all about comforting the afflicted), we wanted to show Jerry that, well, at least Kobe can't rap. (You need to get about 40 seconds into the clip.)
