What do you think is a better game?
MJs was in a playoff game and Kobe's was against the raptors. Need I say more?
Michaels 63 easily
Kobe's 81 against the sub .500 Raptors in the regular season or MJ's 63 against the Celtics in the Garden? The most points ever scored in the playoffs before or since? Some say that Celtics team was the greatest in NBA history. We're going over this again... really?
Kobe's was vs the Craptors.........................

Jordan's 63 easily. Although I might take the flu game over either one.
Kobe, regardless of who he played, he played with the Charlotte Bobcats in a Laker uniiform disguise
Being banned is like going to a correctional facility, it doesn't correct anything, in fact, it makes you worse
Am I the only one who would not even entertain this as a serious question?
But because I'm a sucker - to give it its due, let's look at the opposing lineup. The 14-27 (at the time) Toronto Raptors, parading the dynamite starting lineup of:
Jalen Rose (the retiring version)
The playoff game MJ pulled it off was against the soon to be champion and arguably GOAT Team 86 Boston Celtics comprised of:
Peak Larry Bird
Peak Robert Parish
Peak Kevin McHale
Nearing prime Danny Ainge
Prime Dennis Johnson
And some guy named Bill Walton had a double double off the bench.
Stop, just stop.
Side stat, the Raptors were 29 of 30 in defensive rating. The Celtics were #1 and considered one of the greater defensive teams in NBA history. They lost 18 games that season, including their championship run.
Jordan, but because it was the Playoffs.
I think that the argument about Kobe doing it against the Raptors in silly - because "if it was against a bad team like the Raptors" why can't anyone else do it?
No one else capable of doing it (the list is small) is as arrogant and selfish as Kobe.Originally Posted by Gram:24623487
Jordan, not even a discussion.
