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?

WOAH! That's impressive.
I haven't paid attention to pro b-ball since the Celts lost the Big Three back in the late 80s. But seeing a performance like that would be amazing. I wish I'd seen it.

Bryant's fg% is actually up this year, but for all his 'killer instinct' he seems to lack the ability to make his teammates better. Los Angeles may be shorthanded, but still... I think he's overrated.

You look at someone like Lebron James and you marvel. The kid is fucking amazing. Look at his fg%... compare it to Kobe's. He's not as good an on-the-ball defender, but his defense will improve because he has tremendous court awareness. He gets his points -- nearly the same amount as Kobe -- but he's already learned how to pick his spots.

He actually netted 51 points the other night to make him the youngest player to reach 5000 points. He's got Kobe beat by a year. I really think that if he remains injury free he will be better than Jordan.

weird.

i read somewhere that wilt chamberlain claimed to have slept with 60,000 women. I dont even know how that is physically possible. say he had sex for 60 years of his life, and there are 525600 min in a year (i didnt even have to do the math for that, ive just seen rent that many times) then that means he had 315,360,000 mins to have sex. so then youd divide that by 60,000 right? 525.6 partners a min? or is that 525.6 min per partner... i dont know. either way its friggin rediculous.

Re: weird.

Ridiculous squared. Having one partner is hard enough. Maybe Wilt would have been a better teammate if he hadn't been so, um, self-absorbed.
