VIDEO: Kobe Bryant, Injured Wrist And All, Hits Absurd Fadeaway

Kobe Bryant, if you believe what he says, has torn ligaments in his wrist. Earlier in the broadcast of the Los Angeles Lakers' Christmas Day game against the Chicago Bulls, ABC's Heather Cox reported that if Bryant's wrist bends back the wrong way, it could be the kind of injury that ends his season. And yet, here Bryant is, hitting absurd shots down the stretch to help his team win.

At the time, nobody knew that the Bulls would make a stunning comeback, capped by a game-winner from Derrick Rose and a game-sealing block by Luol Deng. For now, let's just appreciate Bryant's incredible shot for what it is and leave it at that.
