He had 2 assists to go along with it and the rest of his team had 41 points. His shot total in this game will be higher than the highest single game point totals for 90% of the NBA players (if not more than 90%) this year.

81 points while taking just 46 shots is being very efficient. I am not a Kobe fan but 55 in the 2nd half is amazing.

They won the game by the way.

I'd hope so. If you don't win a game when one of your guys throws up 81, there's something wrong.

I imagine that Phil Jackson had something pithy and vaguely negative to say about this, too. Shaq probably had no comment. :)

So...uh...maybe I was wrong, maybe Kobe can be a team unto himself.

I really dislike Kobe Bryant. In a field such as pro sports where arrogance runs wild like mullets at a Motley Crue concert Kobe stands out head and shoulders above the rest. Hard to believe he's the same kid I really enjoyed watching the first 3 or 4 years of his career.

I'm right there with you Jaycint.

I really liked the Lakers when they had Shaq. Used to love to watch them during the Magic and Kareem years. But Kobe has made them my least favorite team in the NBA (besides the Celtics, whom I will always dislike)

The 76ers lost the game when Wilt scored 100.

The 76ers lost the game when Wilt scored 100.That must of been quite a loss, they were the Warriors then, the Sixers were an expansion team. :evil:

Well I stand corrected. Thought I read they lost the game 124-116 but obviously I was looking at something else.

Ed - I started to reply on your blog and then got interrupted at home....

I'm not a fan of Kobe's personality, but IMO he is the best basketball player today. This was my opinion before he went off for 81 and is only further reinforced now. I just don't see anyone who has the outside game, midrange game, and ability to take the ball to the hole like he does coupled with tenacious defense. He'll never be my favorite player, but he is a great basketball player.

As far as his "feud" or whatever that was with Shaq, I don't know enough to make any decision other than it just seemed silly on both of their parts. IMO, from the little I know, Shaq acted just as childish about it as Kobe if not moreso. But admittedly I did not keep track of what all was going on between them.

Kobe drops 81 on Toronto

Better to see him dropping 81 on Toronto than dropping a female's underwear w/out her permission in Colorado...

That's my team Puffy!! Watch your mouth! :D ;)

But seriously, why do you dislike the Celtics? Just curious. (and please don't say because they suck).
