81 points or not, I still don't like him
Kobe scored 81 points in a single game earlier this week, second only to Wilt Chamberlain's 100 points back in 1962 . No word on how close he is to Wilt's 20,000 (and I can't believe no one else has made that joke yet). How did this happen? He is talented and all, but seriously, couldn't the Raptors have guarded him better? If no one could handle him alone, double team him. If that doesn't work, triple team him. If that doesn't work, knee him in the nuts. Do something! Anything to prevent someone dropping 81 on you. I have never liked Kobe as a player or a person, even before the whole rape trial. He's a Laker and a ball hog. Here's hoping that my favorite player wins his fifth NBA scoring title this season, and not Kobe.
