Those great halfs took a ton of energy, energy he would not have had for the second half if he had to spend it in the first. Putting two together back to back would be a superhuman feat, the energy required is otherworldly.
The temptation now is to look immediately to Everest and Wilt's 100. I would caution against that. Truly appreciate what Kobe has done and marvel at it. 81 may never come our way again, drink in the moment rather than fast forward to a potential run at 100.
Sky wrote:The key concept imo is Kobe's energy is finite. Four steals would take a LOT of energy and drain him. Kobe could get 55 in the second half because he didn't have to kill himself in the first half. The energy it would take to get 50 in the first half would prevent him from getting 50 in the second half. The energy required is superhuman.
You want a scenario to 100 it's how can he score a ton of first half points without expending a lot of energy. For example, totally unconscious from 3 or a parade to the line. It also requires an opponent that can't stop Kobe but can stay ahead in the game to spark Kobe's competitive fire.
Last night was a perfect storm and it landed 81. 100 is aligning the planets with a low energy first half but a ton of points, an all-O no D opponent and Kobe just not missing. Theoretcially possible, but I don't see it.
Let's smell the roses on 81 guys. This is INCREDIBLE. Appreciate the 81 alone and resist the temptation to skip past 81 and dream of 100. I don't think we're seeing the likes of 81 again.
