The amount of points Kobe Bryant scored against the Toronto Raptors on January 22, 2006. The game was especially special because the Lakers were down by as much as 18 and they were looking dead. It was Kobe's desire to win that game that fueled the Lakers to run the court, grab rebounds, steal balls, etc. It is argued that this feat was even more incredible than Wilt Chamberlain's 100 point game because Wilt Chamberlain was a 7 foot center laying the ball up from 2 feet against 5th graders guarding him. Kobe Bryant is a guard playing in the more competive game of today and was making fade-away jump shots. It is also argued that his 81 is greater than Michael Jordan's 63 which it was because Michael Jordan had 3 overtimes to score that much and he lost anyway.
Did you see the Kobe score 81 points last night?
Dude, 63>81 because I am mathematically challenged.
