This TMZ “Hanukkah Miracle” video about Kobe Bryant shooting hoops at the Irvine JCC is amazing.

In a segment running less than two minutes, Harvey Levin and his crew show a cluelessness about the fact that Jews don’t just live in LA and NY; that the Lakers train in El Segundo, not at the Staples Center, both of which are off-limits until the lockout formally ends; something that Levin calls the luck of the Jews, which doesn’t really jive with the past 3,000 years.

Whatever. The real reason that Bryant likely showed up impromptu at the Irvine JCC was that he was looking to get some shots up and he thought the place would be empty.
