first off, mods if you guys wanna lock this b/c you feel there are too many Kobe 81 point threads, have at it.
anyway on the best damn sports show tonight they brought up this question.
Which was more impressive, Kobe's 81 or Jordan's 63 in the playoffs against the Celtics in the Garden?
obviously Salley picked Kobe, hell Jordan is my favorite player and I pick Kobe's performance. Salley's reason was simple, "BECAUSE IT WAS 81!" Chris Rose, Dibble and Peete all picked Jordan's performance. as if that wasnt enough, they insisted on "mocking" Kobe's 81. saying "Jordan's b/c it was against an NBA
team." Dibble said at the end of the game, that the Raptors literally moved out of the way to let Kobe score. I know, BS.
their biggest reason for picking Jordan's performance was b/c it was on the road in the playoffs. but let's not forget, the Bulls lost. they never mentioned that. what do you guys think?
