Kobe Bryant announced earlier yesterday via his official twitter account that he will be watching and tweeting about his historical 81-point performance against the Toronto Raptors in 2006, celebrating the seven-year anniversary of one of the most memorable moments in NBA history.Letting u know that tmr I’m gonna watch my 81 game for first time @nbatv 1pst.I will be tweeting during. Time to rest and focus now#win— Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) January 21, 2013Amazingly, Kobe says that he has never watched himself explode for 81 points on that night at the Staples Center, as he stated in the tweet. Mr. Bryant recently explained the reason behind it in a interview with ESPN’s Chris Palmer, when asked if he ever looks back into his 17-year career and its long list of great accomplishments, specifically that performance against Toronto:To this day I’ve never seen that game. I don’t feel the need to watch it. What am I going to learn? I don’t watch those tapes. If I’m watching film it’s usually for an upcoming opponent.Fortunately for all the basketball fans who would love to hear Kobe’s take on his masterpiece, that’s about to change. So free up your schedule on Tuesday at 1 P.M. (PDT) and follow along the Black Mamba himself his unforgettable 81-point game on NBA TV.The post The 81-point Game: Watch it today along with Kobe Bryant appeared first on Laker Nation.
