2011 NBA Playoffs Video: Kobe Bryant Posterizes Emeka Okafor

So, everyone thought Kobe Bryant might be done after turning his ankle in Game 4 of the Western Conference Playoffs. Bryant was limping and was seen on crutches after the game, and with a swing game looming between the New Orleans Hornets and the Los Angeles Lakers, no one really knew if Bryant would be up to the task. 

Yeah, whatever. A drive past his defender and a facial on Emeka Okafor later, I doubt anyone is thinking that.

Bryant scored all of his field goals in the second quarter in the first half, and his L.A. Lakers hold a narrow three point lead over Chris Paul and the Hornets. Will Kobe have any more highlights in store for us in the second half?
