This video is pretty awesome.  It shows you every basket he scored that game in under four minutes.   Personally I think what Kobe did that night will never be matched again.   Anytime a guard or a shooter type of a player can score over 50 pts is something you rarely see in the NBA.

So to score 81 points the way Kobe did is honestly something I highly doubt we’ll ever see again.   We very well could have a center or power forward step up and do it some day but I’m pretty skeptical.

But a shooter?  I think it’s way more impressive than Chamberlain’s 100.   But that’s my opinion.   Simply incredible.

Video: Kobe makes impossible reverse

Just when you thought that Kobe Bryant couldn't do anything more incredible, check out this clip from last night's Lakers/Mavericks affair. Midway through the third quarter, Lakers forward Pau Gasol throws an alley-oop pass to Bryant who somehow makes the lay-up with his back to the basket:

Lakers keep close but struggle in loss to Jazz

LOS ANGELES Kobe Bryant knew early on that it was going to be one of THOSE nights. "Definitely easy to see when we're playing like s, (along with) the fact that I shot like s," Bryant said with a smirk after the Lakers committed 24 turnovers and lost to Utah 103-99 at STAPLES Center Sunday night. It was just the third loss in 22 home games for the 28-17 Lakers and...

Kobe Bryant is ‘pleasantly surprised’ that the Mavericks haven’t figured out how to use Lamar Odom

The Lakers cruised to a 16-point victory over the Mavericks on Wednesday night, but something gives me the impression Kobe Bryant actually felt badly for a player on the losing side. Kobe is arguably the fiercest competitor in the league, but it is no secret he and Lamar Odom are close friends. It is also no secret that Odom is unhappy in Dallas and is currently an awkward fit....

Lakers Lose To Rockets After Bynum Ejected.

HOUSTON, March 20 – Let’s not even lie. Our thoughts fast forwarded IMMDEIATLY to this game when Derek Fisher was traded from the Lakers to the Rockets last week. After Fisher’s no-show and eventual buy-out, it was not to be. But there was plenty of napalm to go around towards the end of this one.

My Opinion – Old School

Over time, people like to compare the players of today to the players of yesterday, back in the day, and its impossible to do that. Fairly anyway. A lot of the players of today are more about entertainment, money and they have that what’s in it for me syndrome. Now I’m not saying every player is like that, but if you were to look and compare say a player such as Kobe Bryant...
