Not a Kobe lover, but its hard to hate this performance.



Well, to be fair to Chamberlain, he had a 73 point game on 29-43 shooting, a 68 point game on 30-40 shooting, and a 66 point game on 29-35 (yes ... .829 shooting!) He also had a 43 point game on 18-18 shooting.

2006 Toronto Raptors is SEVERELY overrated

Kobe scored 11pts .417fg% the other game in Toronto. Lakers still won by 9

Default Re: Kobe's 81-point game is SEVERELY underrated

to me this is probably the greatest single performance in nba history... i always flip flop between this game and wilts only because kobe took and made a ridiculous amount of high difficulty shots...yes they should of aggressively doubled kobe but hell getting 81 points takes so much energy out of you... i believe tim duncan said that scoring 40 is absolutely exhausting so i cant imagine how tired kobe was scorin 81

only thing i hate about this game was that it completely overshadowed ray allens ridiculous second half against phoenix on the same day where he score 30 of his 42 points in the 4th quarter and overtime and hit the 30 foot game winner... i was thinking espn might actually show my boy some love since ray was one of the least talked about stars in the nba in his prime but kobe goes ahead and does something of ridiculously historic proportions lol

Lakers whipped Dallas with little effort, the game was never close.
Toronto was blowing out the Lakers at one point and looked good to win.

If Kobe played the 4th, I think Kobe wouldve dropped 72-76 vs a good Dallas team which is more impressive than 81 vs a sucky Raptors team.

Its like a college football game. Is it more impressive to score 40 on a SEC defense or 70 on a WAC defense.

  1. Chris Bosh - 1x NBA champion, 7x All-Star, Toronto's all-time leading scorer, he was putting up 22.5/9.2/2.6 on 50.5% in 2005-06. Had 18/8/2 during the game.
  2. Jalen Rose - Led the Fab Five in scoring (19 PPG), a career-best 24/4/5 NBA player. 17/5/6 during the game.
  3. Matt Bonner - 1x NBA champion, 1x NBA 3PT% Leader, a decent role playe for his limited minutes.
  4. Jose Calderon - Toronto's all-time leader in assists, a career 10/2.5/7.2 player.
  5. Charlie Villanueva - Averaged 13/6.4/1.1 in 2005-06.
  6. Mike James - He was averaging 20.3/3.3/5.8 on 37 MPG and 79 games in 2005-06. He put up a nice double-double during the game. Led his team with 26 points, 10 assists, 2 steals on 66.7% FG, 75% 3PT.

Meanwhile Kobe had Odom and shit for teammates in 2006. Smush, Kwame, Mihm, Cook, George, Walton?

Other reasons Kobe's performance was so impressive:
  • LA was down by 14 at the half (TOR 63 - LAL 49). Kobe's insane run in the 2nd half ended the game with LA up by 18 (TOR 104 - LAL 122).

  • He put up those 81 points on incredible efficiency: 60.9% FG (28-46), 53.8% 3PT (7-13), 90% FT (18-20).

  • He led all 4 quarters in scoring; 1st- 14 pts, 2nd- 12 pts, 3rd- 27 pts, 4th- 28 pts

  • He put on this insane scoring show with only 3 turnovers in the game. In comparison, Odom had 4 turnovers on his 8 points in that game. Two days before Kobe's 81-point game, LeBron was losing to the Warriors and putting up 14 points on 6 turnovers and 5 for 22 shooting (22.7%) from the field.

  • Kobe's advanced metrics during this game: 73.9 TS%, 23.0 AST%, 158 ORtg, 107 DRtg

That, Jordans 63 against the celtics and Kobe's 62(?) against the mavs is more impressive than his 81 point game IMO

The reason Kobe's 81 points seems underrated is that 99% of the time is brought up by someone trying to compare Kobe to God. The second that happens, people will respond trying to put that person in his place, hater or not. This thread is the closest I've seen to a civilized discussion on the subject... Just sayin
