Kobe Bryant Posterizes Rookie Dwight Howard With One-Handed Slam in 2004-05 Season (Video)

Editor's note: The 2011-12 NBA season was supposed to tip off Nov. 1. With no games to watch, NESN.com will help fill the void by posting a dunk video.

Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant is known more for his fade-away jumper nowadays, but a younger Bryant made Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard look defenseless in the 2004-05 season.

Bryant drove to the basket from the left wing and used one hand to dunk over the rookie Howard, who was just trying to get in Bryant's way. It's safe to say with seven seasons under his belt now, Howard wouldn't let such a thing happen again.

Check out the dunk below.
