Why do people create these hypothetical situations? You think guys haven't taken lots of shots against bad teams before? LeBron had his career high against the same team and no one gives him shit about it. Jordan had his career high against a team that gave up 102 ppg, and no one tries to downplay it.
The fact is Kobe had an all time great performance that will most likely never be replicated again just like some other players in NBA history.
