Good Morning: Andrea Bargnani
Last night the Toronto Raptors played host to Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers. I liken this matchup to watching my best friends fight my enemies; it's very clear who I'm rooting for. So when Kobe hoisted the desperation 3-pointer with 1.2 seconds to go to win the game, and it hit all parts of the rim before clanking out, I fell to the ground in a state of pure relief. But at certain points, the game had me doing the opposite, and I was jumping out of my seat watching the Raps play very well against the best team in the NBA. One such moment is this one, for which Andrea Bargnani's well deserving of the "Dunk of the Night".
