Kobe Paras' hard at work, preparing for his return to US-NCAA action, and it appears to be paying off pretty well for his game.
In a stunning display of athleticism, the 6'6" swingman, with his new bleach-blonde hair, pulled off a slam that's worthy of a perfect 50.
Paras' slam is similar to a jam done by Slam Dunk Contest participant and Cleveland Cavaliers forward Larry Nance Jr. during the the NBA All-Star Weekend. which indeed scored a perfect 50 from the judges.
See Paras' dunk, and Nance Jr.'s, and compare them for yourself:

Paras bounced the ball off the backboard, then he caught it before tapping once more, setting himself up twice for a two-handed stuff.
Paras' slam was every bit as smooth and athletic as his NBA inspiration, so here's a 50, Kobe.
