VIDEO: Kobe Bryant Shows He Can Do Chase-Down Blocks Too

The chase-down block is usually a play reserved for the young athletes of the NBA. LeBron James leads a short list of eligible NBA players that you have to worry about when you're all alone on a fast break and you hear footsteps from behind.

Kobe Bryant was once on that list too. Now, after 16 seasons, 42,000 regular-season minutes and 8,200 playoff minutes ... he's apparently still on that list. Here he is chasing Al Harrington from behind in Game 2 of the Los Angeles Lakers' 2012 NBA Playoffs first-round series against the Denver Nuggets.


It looked like Harrington would have an easy layup that would have cut the Lakers' lead down to seven. Instead, Bryant got down there and saved the two points. You think he doesn't want that sixth championship?
