In the past couple of weeks we have seen a lot of tributes to Kobe Bryant. A lot of letters by writers and bloggers. A lot of mixes made by video editors. International dunk phenom Rafal Lipinski had a unique way of honoring the man I consider one of the top 5 dunkers of all-time (if you disagree, you need to watch more Kobe highlights from the 90s to mid 00s): at the FIBA 3×3 All-Star dunk contest, Lipek pulled out a #8 Kobe jersey and threw down Kobe’s signature reverse baseline dunk.
