    @Pure0wnU30Videos RS True. That's why Kobe is hesitant to answer. Well, he doesn't have a choice he don't want to eat that cow's tongue

    @the supermanisalive quick rundown..born and raised in LA. Laker fan for life. Loved watching jordan, i put jordan as the goat. Now with that being said..You just sound like a whiny hater. Ok, 81 points against the leagues worst defense in a worthless game is your argument. You act like thats a walk in the park? Its still an NBA team with players that dedicated their life to the sport. If you were in that game, you probably wouldnt have been able to get the ballAnd you say he wouldnt of won it with...

    @Duckrockerz4life Kobe is not a very efficient scorer. He is normally around 45% field goal percentages.He just jacks up a ridiculous of shots. At a 45% field goal average, Kobe had alot more "bad games" than Lebron James or MJ.

    @You Don't Know Me Kobe saved those clowns because he was defending and scoring when needed. The whole team acknowledge the fact that Kobe led by example and the rest of the team followed. Fact.

    Kobe was the MJ of the 00's. I'd take MJ and Kobe over anyone else in NBA history. The way they played the game is incomparable except to each other.

    Samuel Robert holy cow are you an idiot. Wilt chamberlain would destroy Kobe. There is reality where wilt would say Kobe was better. I dont think the 100 point game is a monumental achievement, but his career most certainly was. Kobe’s scoring happened against one of the worst defensive teams in the league at the time and a completely meaningless game. And did we somewhere establish jalen rose is a defensive stallworth? And besides that Kobe’s was done post handcheck. I think Jordan’s 63 against o...

    @Acidrooster Wilt had 100 with nearly 120 offensive possessions in a game where the opposing team actively tried to get him 100 by fouling him. Kobe did it while shooting jumpers and helping his team come back a 17 point deficit to win the game. He also did it was 90 offensive possessions while guarding Jalen Rose on the perimeter. Go watch what Wilt did, try to do it, then watch what Kobe did and try to do it. Which was harder to do? You're a stupid fucking moron if you think Wilt is better than Kobe,...
