The Rush: Mamba-esque performances were everywhere on Kobe Bryant’s birthday

Yesterday would have been Kobe Bryant’s 42nd birthday and several teams and stars paid tribute, including the Los Angeles Dodgers, Diana Taurasi, and Bryce Harper. There were also some very Black Mamba-like performances including Luka Doncic’s game-winner in the Dallas Mavericks’ 135-133 OT victory over the Los Angeles Clippers, the Raptors bench scoring 100 points in Toronto’s 150-122 rout over the Brooklyn Nets, Kemba Walker grabbing his first playoff series win in the Boston Celtics’ sweep over the Philadelphia 76ers, and Donovan Mitchell going full Kobe with another 50+ point game in the Utah Jazz’s 129-127 win over the Denver Nuggets. But the most Black Mamba performance might have been golfer Dustin Johnson’s under-30 performance at TPC Boston.
