Kobe thinks he's a running back with this move

There are some tricks of the trade that running backs in the NFL will do to keep the ball in their hands. Most will throw a nasty stiff arm to get a defender off them and that's kind of what Kobe Bryant did. With the Los Angeles Lakers playing the Oklahoma City Thunder --- much closer than their previous 30+ point losses --- Bryant really wanted a win and a bucket it seems.

He wanted a win so bad that he stiff armed the ref running next to him!

Is that a personal foul? Should there have been a flag for unnecessary roughness? Who knows? Kobe got his bucket and his funny moment of the game.
