81!!!


Wow! When I heard about this amazing accomplishment over the radio last night at 10:30PM after watching a day of football, which will be shadowed over forever in history, Kobe Bryant was going off for 81 points against the Toronto Raptors. 81 points in todays era is much more impressive then when Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points against a team of 5'10 John Stocktons in 1962. Kobe scored 55 points in one half! That is as much as the Lakers all-time scoring leader Kareem Abdul Jabbar ever scored in a game! What happened on January 22nd 2005 will always be a part of history and will always over shadow those two footbal games that were played that day.

It was funny - I received a call from Red the morning after asking me to guess how many points Kobe scored - my first guess was way low and when I finally got it right, I thought Red was completely full of shit. Then he started telling me stats from the game and I knew he wasn't full of shit, but I still had to go read it by myself. Once I got to work and saw 81 flashed across the top of espn.com, I dropped my jaw.

Sure Kobe's 81 is extremely impressive. as I was watching Sports Center they were showing clips of Chamberlin's impressive 100 pt performance and Red has a good point there too - it seemed as though Wilt TOWERED over everyone. Did you see some of those clips, I swear he was atleast a foot taller.

But as impressive as Kobe's 81 was, I think it was downright worthless. The team combined for a total of 88 shots in the game, Kobe alone had more than 50% of them with 46. That stat bothers me. Plus how many assists he had (2) - As impressive as it was, I think more players can easily accomplish this feet IF they were allowed to shoot the ball 46 times in a game. Wilt had 60+ shot which makes his 100 pt game seem like it needed to happen instead of a great magical moment that it did happen.

As a fan, I don't want to see another 81 in the game ever again...sure it's nice to see a player score a crap load of points, but in no way should your shooting guard had 400% more shots than the person with the second most shots (Smush Parker was second with 5-11 FG).

If a player has a hot hand that's one thing, but 28-46 which is only 60% (which of course is higher than his season/career average of 45%), not all that impressive. Now like a player like Carmelo who LAST NIGHT was 13-16 (%77) if you were to see him shoot the ball just 30 more times at that 77% rate, you'd easily see more than 81 points (including the 3 pt and free throws).

Not taking anything away from Kobe, but I hope to never see that again.

81 is the number of years Kobe should be doing in Canon City. Yeah he had a good night, but I wouldn't start republishing any history books just yet. This game was nowhere near as big as Jordan's 63. Jordan put up 63 in the playoffs against Bird and the Celtics in Boston. So what if Kobe puts up 81 against the lowly Raptors at home in the regular season. I can't even name one player on the Raptors on my own without looking it up. (Where's Vince Carter at these days). Good Game rapist, but still not as good as Jordans.

Wilt the stilt slept with 81 women in one night on September 16th 1975 further nullifying Kobe's accomplishment anyway.

81 isn't much at all, I once scored 181 in front of recruiters for the NBA following my home from run from Lumberg to JHS' front door.

Kobe is the shit and if you dont think that is impressive tell me how many other teams can design offense in todays NBA to get a player 46 shots oh yeah some of that he creates on his own but that is cause he is the shit. Dont doubt he is silkier then Jordan ever was does he have the mental game to get 3 more titles before he is done. Then we can compare him and give him the title of greates pure player ever. Already done the defensive thing and the mvp thing and 3 titles to his credit and still younger then Jordan @same point of accomplishments. Kinda where Griffey was before serious injuries derailed him from & Bonds stepped in
