Kobe Bryant is no Jack Taylor

Last night, Kobe Bryant scored over half his team’s points (40) and reached a triple double.  No, not the good kind of triple double…the kind where you also have 10 turnovers.  An absurd line of 40/10/3/3 with 5 3PM, 12-28 FG, 11-13 FT, and the aforementioned 10 turnovers.  You’ll live with the high TO’s but the Lakers can’t.  In a night of high profile college basketball...
