View Full Version : Can anyone beat Kobe's 81 point record?

Since Wilt's record is probably impossible to beat, was wondering if there was anyone in the NBA that could possibly beat Kobe's 81 points. It's probably unlikely and will never happen. If I had to guess Durant or maybe Wade, I'm not putting Lebron or Melo because their supporting cast are better and make it so they won't always need to score as many points. Durant may have a pretty good chance because his team isn't that good and he's becoming a pretty deadly three point shooter and still getting better. Any guesses?

Kobe! Only if 2 other stars on the Lakers team get injured. (Knock on Wood)

Durrant wouldnt have a chance to do this until maybe 3-5 years from now, and then Green and Westbrooke and maybe another draft pick will be reallly good too, hes going to have a very good supporting cast. I dont think LeBron or Melo can do it with the supporting cast they have. So i gotta say D-Wade. 2nd best player today, and when he catches fire, hes unstoppable. But to be honest, the only person i can c beat Kobe's 81 point performance is Kobe himself, if Gasol and Artest get injured.

first off its not a record!! secondly, i highly doubt that 81 is surpassed for along time.but in any sense it would take another ball hogging player on a 2nd tier team to match such a feat.

Not any time soon. Kevin Durant's a pretty gifted scorer but he's still years away from coming close to being able to accomplish that kind of feat.

Kobe could break it if he gets that hot against the Kings this season.

The guy took 46 shots in the game, and thats not even counting the shots that he took and got fouled on, therefore they weren't counted as shots. He in reality took about 53-60 shots in that game.

Even if you only count the boxscore shots, he outshot every member of his own team 46 to 42.

So the guy isn't exactly wrong when he said Kobe was a ball hog. In fact I dont think a truer statement has ever been said. I dont exactly fault him because obviously he was hot and he didnt have alot of help, but he still shot the ball more than the rest of his team combined....

When you are shooting as well as Kobe was that night, you have the green light to shoot as much as possible. His team was also trailing by double digits and he ended up leading them to a win on a historic night. Chamberlain, Jordan, D. Robinson, West, Baylor, etc.. all had the green light when they had it going the way Kobe had it going that night, it's not ball hogging, everything was coming within the flow of the game. I watched that entire game, he was magnificent out there and couldn't miss. Why not keep shooting?

Durant or D Wade only if he upgrades his 3 point shot and shoots it like he was shooting it in the playoffs. Lebron will have a chance if he doesnt stay with the cavs and goes to the nets or knicks but i dont believe he will.

lexworld2009
08-04-2009, 08:43 AM
no one will beat it none of the other players in the league have the entire offensive game that kobe has, bron can't shoot past 15 ft, wade is more of a slashing type I mean he shoots it a lil better than bron but nothing in Kobes range, durant mayb in 7 yrs may have the total package but isn't a killer like kobe, cuz when he filling it he starts pulling from long and i mean longgggggg range, if I had to say sum1 he won't be there for another 6 yrs would be oj mayo he ha sthe entire package jus needs to mature in the league for a few years.

hater?? hardly!. you guys are idiots if you feel that's the case. sorry facts hurt. i'm not taking anything away from Kobe or his performance that night im just telling like it is!. that laker team was soft and 2nd rate at best! they nearly required him to score 40+ a night to win. when you start seeing rediculous boxscores by 1 player its turning into a 1 man game. yes on occasion its required and you see something special ala kobe's 81 but in all seriousness thats not how you win games. you saw how that team turned out... almost resulted in kobe leaving the lakers. now with a solid core around him his numbers have fallin off but for the better. so quit claiming people to be haters for stating facts! Get your knowledge straight!

Most normal coaches aren't comfortable with allowing one player to take 46 shots in a single game. Kobe shot 28/46, 7/13 from 3, 18/20 from the free throw line. 46 shots per game is more than some teams take.

Didn't Gilbert Arenas score 60 not long ago? Wasn't it against the Lakers? Of course, 16 of his 60 were in overtime. He shot 17/32, 12/20 on 2's and 5/12 on 3's. He also shot 21/27 on free throws.

I'm going to say that if it took Kobe 46 shots to get 81, then nobody is going to be getting more points on fewer shots in the foreseeable future. And I cannot see any coach other than Phil Jackson allowing one player to take 46 shots in a single game. Most teams have at least four other starters who like the ball every so often.

Mayo, Carmelo, Durant, Lebron, Wade and 1 or 2 more can beat it.

Wade and Lebron are beast who can get to the line and still shoot the rock.

Toronto's D is not good, but it is not the worst. It was against an average defense. Kobe was just too hot, if you watch the video on some of his shots there at 3 defenders jump in his face. He was getting doubled tripled the entire game.

I don't think anyone will break it in a 48 minute game. Possibly if a game goes to a few extra overtimes. It would be a great thing to watch happen again if some one can do it.

Agreed. Wilt was a high schooler playing with middle school kids(height wise)
Kobe was a guard and shot amazing from the free-throw line. And about newhere else he shot on the court. I am a Kobe hater as big as the biggest out there but i cant lie, Kobes 81 was the best single game dominance by any player in the nba....ever. That being said, If Lebron shoots like that from the free-throw line later in his career and you can see him beat it. Otherwise id say wade and those are the only 2 in the nba with a chance. No center/PF can do it, unless we see an athletic 8 footer. :)

actually im a hawks fan and i think kobe's 81 is more impressive then wilt's 100.

Think about it, Back when Wilt played, not only he was the tallest player, but everybody else was like a midget compared to him, and they were much weaker compared to him. Wilt just simply scored at will and took advantage of his height and strength.

But now in Today's nba. Where its also a much more team oriented sport, and where the league is much more athletic, it would be near impossible to even come close to 100. Not only kobe made it some what possible to get close to 100, but he was not the tallest, strongest or the most athletic, very athletic but not the most, and he still got 81 in a 48 min game. Plus what i find more surprising is that he was a guard. I say that because when i think of somebody who could come close to 100, i would think of a big forward or a extremely tall and strong center to do it. But i would never think a guard could do it because guards have to shoot lights out the whole game, which is nearly impossible yet kobe made it possible.

i get your point but also remember there were no 3 point lines back then and nba did not have those ridiculous touch fouls. so it was a much harder fight to get there. plus if you read wilt's autobiography, he says the knicks ( yes the knicks sucked back then too ) were stalling the ball the whole way.

IMO kobe's 81 is more impressive just because it was a heated game that they were losing until he came on. plus, he's a guard. he shot like 60% from the field. its crazy how when sumone gets hot, they are instantly hated on. i mean ppl argue he hoged the ball, but he ONLY shot 46 shots. sumtimes ppl shoot 30 to get 30 and he shot 46 to get 81...neither team fouled to extend the game and kobe didnt state he was gonna drop X amount of points pregame as Ive heard wilt did. kobe just balled. why argue that the defense was soft when he still went 1 on 5. y argue that it only happens on 2nd tier teams that a player can have a brilliant scoring night when how many times did jordan break 50-60 points on championship lvl teams??? stop the lunacy please. the performance was nothing short of amazing. relish it because noone will come close any time soon. people give durant too much credit. he is an amazing player and shoots sum great percentages but he doesnt have the game kobe had. kobe dropped 40 for a month. he had multiple 40+ pt games, 50+ point games and a few 60 point games. nobody could stop him, plus he could have scored 80+ against the mavs but decided not to. lets give durant some time before we compare him to that. its like comparing kobe to jordan...its really not fair at this point. and saying wade could do it is laughable. wade is my 2nd fav playe, but he's not THAT elite. he barely broke 50. his high for the longest was 2 48 point performances. he has no range and hes not as athletic as he once was...better player but not the same IMO. plus his freethrows arent great. long story made less long...nobody in the league rigt now WILL do it. if you reach far enough maybe lebron, but i seriously dont see it. can we wait till ppl break 60 1st?

RLundi
08-04-2009, 08:47 PM

He probably will never have to but I think he can definitely do it. If the game vs the Knicks was any indication when he scored 61 in only like 35 minutes and the game wasn't really all that close. If the game was tight, back and forth, he played more minutes and he was still as hot as he was, I think he could at least approach those numbers.

In my opinion Kobe's 81 is more impressive than Wilt's 100, I know this is coming from a Kobe fan but thats my opinion. Nobody will ever beat the 81 unless something changes with the NBA rules for whatever reason or a very lon game with many overtimes. As far as who could be close, well #1 would be Kobe himself, Lebron and Dwade...none of which i think will even hit 70 points in their careers but all 3 will have a few 60 point games I am sure.

not going to happen. for those of us who saw that game live, it was remarkable, and arguably the greatest individual performance of all time. the lakers were down by double digits and came back on the shoulders of kobe bryant to win that game by over 20. the 81 points will never be broken, hands down.....i know wilt holds the record for 100 points, but what kobe did is a lot harder than what wilt did.....kobe scored 81 points as a shooting guard, in an era were the defenese is A LOT better than what it was back then.....81 points by kobe bryant will never be surpassed by anyone, including kobe himself...


GO LAKERS!!!!

^That was against Memphis.

62 in 3 quarters was against the Mavs.

Since Wilt's record is probably impossible to beat, was wondering if there was anyone in the NBA that could possibly beat Kobe's 81 points. It's probably unlikely and will never happen. If I had to guess Durant or maybe Wade, I'm not putting Lebron or Melo because their supporting cast are better and make it so they won't always need to score as many points. Durant may have a pretty good chance because his team isn't that good and he's becoming a pretty deadly three point shooter and still getting better. Any guesses?

i don't think anyone will ever beat his 81 points noone is worthy enough to do that

The only person that can beat Kobe's record is OJ Mayo.
That dude is a scoring God, just watch next season

Durant and Roy (and even DWade) are far superior young scorers.

I don't think a lot of you understand how difficult it is for a perimeter player to record what Kobe did that night. Also, I doubt from this point forward, any team no matter how poor they are defensively, will allow an opposing player to put up those numbers. LeBron and Wade are the only two player who could probably hit close to 70 but not over. We'll probably never see a performance like that again.

Were you there to see Wilt Chamberlain's game?

Watch it first before you tell me the answer.

Raps if they switch places Kobe could easily score more than 100 points a game. Kobe used to being double-teamed or triple-teamed by players taller than him. In Wilts era nobody can guard Kobe so scoring 100 is not hard for him.
But if Wilt plays in Kobe's era he's lucky if he scores 20. You're just hating,that's why it's hard for you to swallow, what Kobe did to your Raptors.

I'm not saying this as a Raptor fan but Wilt was strong as ****. he would have no problem getting 20 a game if he were born in this generation. The man was a freak of an athlete and obviously a gifted, special talent.

... there was also no 3 point shots then. Why hate on Wilt?.. He was a Laker too.

Like I said, have you seen Wilt's game?

How would you know Kobe's was better?

And Wilt is a C. He can only go 2 poitns at a time. Kobe had the 3 point and free throws that boosted his points.

I'm not saying Wilt was better than Kobe because I didn't see Wilt's game but you have to atleast watch the game and then judge.

It would be pretty difficult to use that as judgment, considering that no tape actually exists of the game.

it has to be labron james because he has the ability to get lot of free throws which stretches the game. I actually can see him get 20 to 25 free throw if he keep driving in every play..

There is no tape?

Well I would still think that getting 36 FG and 28 FT(Being a C and having a 50% FT)is easier than making 28 shots and 7 FT's.

But like I said, I'm not going to judge because I never really saw the game.

Why is suddenly everyone on Durants jock...it only confirms the assumption alot of fans are oblivious to anything beyond high scoring numbers.

Durant needs alot of work as a defender, passer and all-round player. He has alot to work on. Brandon Roy and Danny Granger are still more complete players than Durant.

Because this thread is all about scoring and Durant is a top 5 scorer in the league on a team where they need him to put up 25+ ppg?

The guy took 46 shots in the game, and thats not even counting the shots that he took and got fouled on, therefore they weren't counted as shots. He in reality took about 53-60 shots in that game.

Even if you only count the boxscore shots, he outshot every member of his own team 46 to 42.

So the guy isn't exactly wrong when he said Kobe was a ball hog. In fact I dont think a truer statement has ever been said. I dont exactly fault him because obviously he was hot and he didnt have alot of help, but he still shot the ball more than the rest of his team combined....

It doesn't matter. The Lakers were down and he brought them back. That is what superstar players do, not even all superstars do that, that is what the great one's do. Was he also a ball hog when he outscored the whole Mavs team in 3 qtrs?
