Kobe started the nosepick with two fingers flaring the nostrils out and he followed it up with a clamp to really drive the point home. Truly flawless technique from the man who no doubt spends hours a day practicing the best nosepick, perfectionist as he is. If I had to sacrifice 16 games to the NBA's overlord David Stern for this gem of a nosepick, I'll volunteer them every year. I was afraid that the lockout would allow NBA players to focus on their outward appearance while on the bench and avoid picking their noses. We were instead blessed with Kobe's supernatural foresight in knowing that a shortened season would mean less time for nosepicking. He simply doesn't have time to look for a tissue, damnit. Here's to hoping this is a trend throughout the season. I'm looking at you Vince Carter.
