81 points, 5 year later
Well, it’s been 5 years since Kobe Bryant’s video game-like scoring binge against the Toronto Rapots on January 22, 2006. Shout out to KB24! I still remember seeing the ESPN ticker late that night, after the last 11pm airing of Sportscenter ended, which simply said, “Kobe Bryant scores 81 points vs. Toronto”
I must have fell off my chair thinking, “what the, that’s got to be some kind of typo on ESPN’s part.” Waking up the following morning was even more exciting, as I couldn’t wait to catch the 9am airing of Sportscenter to see what the heck Kobe did. Love him or hate him, that has got to be one of the greatest thing I have ever seen in sports. Ever.
