Even the Best Chamberlain Still Ends Up Holding Someone Else's Bag
Kobe Bryant dropped 81 points on Toronto yesterday evening. That's the second-highest total in NBA history, trailing only Wilt Chamberlain's famous 100-point game. Sometimes Kobe's shooting percentage suggests that he shoots too much. But this performance looks great from every angle. Then again, so did many of Wilt's best games. And look how many championships he won with all that excellence. Kobe never would have scored that many if he still had Shaq around. Of course, back in those days of forced modesty, the Lakers won a few titles. Think this Los Angeles team has a chance?
