This is the very reason why I think its hard to guage Odom's offensive performance when he plays with a player like Kobe. Also...that is why I ( as a Laker fan ) would question bringing in a player like Artest that would help significantly on the defensive end...but would ultimately want to be more involved in the offensive end as well. One could say that Artest would ( at least ) simply take Odoms FGA....the problem is that Odom...as the 2nd offensive option on the team takes an average of 12 FGA a game. Thats about 5 less FGA on the Pacers. Hopefully Phil Jackson can help Artest understand that he should focus more on his defensive skills then his offensive skills if and when he goes to the Lakers.

MJ Career high was 69
David Robinson was 71 (But it was the last game going after a scoring championship so there is debate on how 'real' those points were)

And I to being from Canada, like rcarey, got to watch the Raptors forever be on the losing end of the history books. That is the best part.

I could not believe it went to 80 but when he had his career high and he it was a close game I started to wonder if he could get 80. By the end ALL of the lakers were passing to him cause they all wanted to see him go higher and higher. Odom said: "God put Kobe on this earth so we can all watch him play."

Every 5 seconds on the ESPN, they would mention how he had the 3-pt line to how Wilt didn't.

That's the only thing I can think of, that people will be able to bring this performance down.

Even if he didn't have the three point line, it would only take off 7 points and he would have 74. STILL ONE HELL OF A GAME.

It should be noted that Kobe's still over a point behind Jordan's career-best scoring average of 37.1 (5th all-time to Wilt's 4 best averages).

If he really wants to chase Jordan's individual records, that should be his next goal.

Kobe's 55 was also just 4 short of Wilt's NBA record for points ina half.

Nice.

As for the "no 3pt line" argument. Wilt also didn't have a 3 second rule so he could just stand under the basket and catch lobs from his teamates all day.

All any of these arguments do is tarnish what should be viewed as marvelous gems of sports history. Regardless of the rules, no one else is doing, or did do, anything like either of these performances.

Not true. The 3-second rule was instituted long before Wilt, in the 40's at the birth of the NBA.

The lane was 6 feet until it was widened to 12 feet in the 50's then to 16 feet in the mid 60's, so you can say that he benefitted from being able to position himself a little closer to the basket in the post. His record came with a 12 foot lane.

The arguments about the current season being more grueling are silly. Playing 80 games and riding buses and turbo-prop planes back then is far tougher than today's 82 games, taking into account the luxury charter or team planes, 5-star hotels, nutritionists, conditioning equipment, and multiple team doctors to tend to every bump and bruise.

I'm not diminishing Kobe's performance. Wilt took over 60 shots to get his 100, and had (for him) a superhuman free throw shooting night. If Jalen Rose were guarding him, though, Wilt may have gotten 150.

Kobe's performance is incredible.

To be fair, the Lakers were going to lose this game. They came out looking god-awful from the beginning. Every single person aside from Kobe was playing apathetic or lethargic. It looked as though they were just going through the motions, as the Raptors continued to hand it to the Lakers and were up by 17 I believe, at one point.

Kobe simply "put the team on his shoulders", as Steve Kerr often says about MJ, and rallied his team to victory. Kobe won those guys a game that they shouldn't have won. The 3rd quarter was Kobe VS. Toronto...no joke. Kobe came out of halftime on a mission - he basically gave his teammates no choice - they were not going to lose that game.

In college anyway the lane was widened from 6 ft. to 12 ft. in 1956 after Wilt's freshman year at Kansas. Before that he could post up at the edge of the backboard, catch, turn, jump, and dunk. No need to even enter the paint! And this was on the freshman team (freshmen were ineligible). They changed the rules knowing that he was coming!

The rule against offensive goaltending also came into existense because of Wilt-- he was redirecting errant shots into the basket from well above the rim.

Some of the rule changes that happened because of him are in his bio:

He is incredibly jealous. What a poor sport. I can't believe he wouldn't acknowledge Kobe's achievement. Even Chris Bosh (who was on the other team and said that it was a poor Rap effort) admitted to Kobe doing something great. Frankly, I don't think anyone outside of Kobe can do this in the NBA.

What's so miraculous about Kobe's 60%? He broke NBA most threepointers record shooting 67% in 2003. His career fg percentage is solid 45.

Talking about percentages, former Lithuania's captain Saulius Stombergas (maybe some of you remember him from Athens, 16 points 10 rebounds in 90-94 win) scored 39 points for Tau Ceramica shooting 4 from 4 2pointers, 9 from 9 threepointers, 4 from 5 freethrows in 2001 Euroleague semifinal.

Of course it wasn't NBA, and it wasn't 81 point.

Btw, what is NBA most points without a missed field goal record?

Ron Artest says nobody scores 20 off him, so the Raptors should have traded for Ron and they would have won by 44.

And when Ron says something, it's always true.

What's so miraculous about Kobe's 60%? He broke NBA most threepointers record shooting 67% in 2003. His career fg percentage is solid 45.

Talking about percentages, former Lithuania's captain Saulius Stombergas (maybe some of you remember him from Athens, 16 points 10 rebounds in 90-94 win) scored 39 points for Tau Ceramica shooting 4 from 4 2pointers, 9 from 9 threepointers, 4 from 5 freethrows in 2001 Euroleague semifinal.

I believe Wilt went 18/18 from the floor once. That should be the record.

The Philadelphia 76ers' Wilt Chamberlain shot 18-for-18 from the field against the Baltimore Bullets, an NBA record for field goals in a game without a miss, on February 24, 1967.

On February 28, 1967, Chamberlain missed his first field goal in four games, ending his NBA record shooting streak of 35 consecutive field goals during Philadelphia's 127-107 victory over the Cincinnati Royals.

I couldn't find the record for perfect shooting INCLUDING free throws,

but it might belong to Sam Perkins:

He once posted 21 points, on perfect shooting (5-5 FG, 4-4 3FG, 7-7 FT), in a 107-101 win over the L.A. Clippers.

Guys, we're witnessing one of the greatest ever. Kobe Bryant is a special special player, and a joy to watch.

Among shooting guards, his individual and career accomplishments rank 2nd only to Jordan.

That said, Jordan still has a WIDE gap on Kobe, as a defender and as a playoff performer. Kobe still has another 10 years to close it, however.

I have not read this whole thread today. But does anyone else think this might increase Ron's trade value to a few of the western conference teams.

No.

The reason? The teams that LA is likely to play in the first round, SA, Phoenix and Dallas, have no interest in Ron.

Ever seen the movie Hoosiers?

They had the lane in that movie, and it took place in the freaking 50's.

Ever wondered why they often refer to the paint as "the key?" Well, that's because before WIlt it used to look like one.

I was aware they had a key before that time yes, but I didn't know the 3 second rule was instituted with the creation of the key (if that's what you are saying is the case) as the key serves other purposes than just the 3 second rule.

what other purpose did the key serve? Foul shooting doesn't count. You don't need a painted area for that.

Don't forget about Minny and Denver. LA definitely has a shot at the #6 seed and would face either Minny, Denver or Utah.

I don't see the Lakers passing the Clippers. Too much depth, too much balance.

If they make a run, though, you'd be correct.

You don't need a painted area for the 3 second rule. But yeah, the foul line and the blocks. Thats it.

NBA TV will re-air Kobe's 81 point game in the afternoon for the next 3 days.

:laugh:

It's been replaying on Raptors TV for most of today; as if Raptors fans weren't crushed enough.

I'd suggest taping it, for any of the die-hards that are into collecting that sort of thing.

I think Ron defends Kobe very well. As well as anybody in the NBA not named Prince (I think Ron's a better defender than Prince overall, but not against Kobe).

That said, Kobe's game on Friday (which I saw) was just his warmup act, and he was doing stuff that Ron wouldn't be able to stop.

Kobe should change his jersey number to 81. ;) .

It's been reported that there will be a No. 81 jersey released for sale. Kobe for MVP!
