Kobe was sick tonight!!! How about that circus shot? That'll be on the career highlight reel.

Also keep an eye out for Kobe becoming the Lakers all time leading scorer on Thursday..........he's 15 points short of Kareem after tonight

Wow looking at the boxscore what a game, only one three, and only five points off foul shots.

Shot 58.6% from the field, not to shabby...

Why would he take a 3 with 20 sec left in a blowout? *******

It was garbage time and the shot clock was about to expire so he just launched it from about 28 feet. The Pistons were coming back there at the end so we needed to put a few of our starters back in to close out the game. Kobe had 35 points thru three quarters, had it not been a blow out he could've approached 50.

Not bad .... =D

Anyone know where he ranks among most 40 point games? I am guessing Wilt is #1 and Kareem or Jordan is #2.

Yea Wilt has like 270 or something near there. I can see him holding on to that one.

Btw, Kobe wasn't really trying for 40pt tonight as far as I could tell. He was passing a lot in the end of the 4th and someone kicked it out to him when the shot clock was about to go and he had to launch it. He had like 35 by the end of the 3rd.

Jerry West is the all time leading Lakers scorer but he should get that by the end of the year. Assuming he stays healthy of course. The reverse, no look was nasty. Typical Kobe...

No. 1: Jerry West (25,192 points)
No. 2: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (24,176 points)
Like you said, Kobe is 15 points shy of #2


Not bad .... =D

Yes, he's 3rd. Jordan is at 160/170 something and Wilt was well over 200.


I also think this is a great NBA moment, not just a Lakers moment. All NBA fans can/should be able to appreciate his greatness even if you don't like the Lakers.

no, that record is held by Jerry West. He'll be passing Kareem for 2nd all-time by a Laker.

:laugh2: you cant use something i already used!! wtf is that!? thats almost as fruity as the murses (http://fashionbombdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/murse1.jpg) dudes in LA carry.

i understand that he scored 40 for the 100th time, alls im said is if hes jackin up 29 shots, hows he not going for 40? do you honestly think hes like "coach philly phil, im gonna shoot like 30 shots, but hopefully i score less than 40"?

its only right that you guys defend your man crush. understandable, and im sorry for "hating" on kobe. friends?:hi5:

and yes, now i will shuush! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rX0EzgK9u0) for all you kobe crushers that have to say something to me personally because ive said something about kobe. you guys have done your job :up:

Hahaha. The shot clock was about to expire and he launched a deep 3. He wasn't jacking it up to get his 100th 40pt game. lol. I'm sure he will have a handful more this season. Its not like he's at the end of his career or anything. Anytime anyone puts anything about a Laker in the NBA forum a handful of you out there always have something nasty to say. We talk about Lebron and Wade everyday. Kobe deserves this to be discussed in the NBA forum because it is an achievment only 2 other people in NBA HISTORY have accomplished. When anything happens like this i'm sure a ton of us would love to discuss it, whether you like the player or not. I get tired of hearing about Lebron every two seconds but the dude is flat out amazing. If you don't like something, dont feed into it and just dont leave a post. simple

The dude shot almost 60% from the field. It's not like he was just chuckin up shots to rack up points. He took 5 freethrows. The man was on fire. If you are shooting above 50% you should be taking more shots. Imagine if "other" players in the league had a monster game like that with that percentage and that few of free throws. I doubt we would hear how many shots he was "jackin up". lol. He was a beast last night. Sorry if that bug ya

bahahahahahaha :clap: that made my day bud

for a kobe thread though this has surprisingly less hate posts then i thought it would. Only this guy so far, but maybe its just too early in the morning and all the haters are still asleep ;)


Congrats To Kobe though he put on a real show last night some of those shots he made were just amazing :speechless:

started off 1/6 and then just went off to go for like 8 in a row all of a sudden

Yeah, poor Ben Gordon. Undersized players like Ben Gordon and OJ Mayo get torn up by Kobe in the post. It's kinda hard to watch because you start to feel bad. :(

PBG isn't hating. Everyone's just being too defensive. Let him state his opinion without getting bashed like crazy. He has a point as well, but I still believe the Lakers just gave him the ball most of the time because he was already on fire. He wasn't specifically going out of his way to jack up those shots. His teammates saw him in a good position in the post, and they gave it to him. A few of those came as the shot clock was winding down as well...

it seems simple enough but people just flat out hate kobe like no other man in basketball. maybe its cause of how he's probably cut the jugular of their fav team a couple times over his career but that doesnt mean you cant still respect his incredible game.


I mean im a laker fan and i can appreciate lebrons game and so do most kobe/laker/basketball fans and im not talking about the 12-13 year old kobe nut riders. those are the ones that give laker fans this bad rap. People are just too blind to see that lebron has more of those kinda fans then kobe does or its just that nobody wants to admit it.

the only people who hate him are the ones that feel threatened that he coud "maybe" "possible" "with the slight chance".....not overtake....but simply challenge....the great Michael Jordan.

When MJ retired, they thought there wouldn't be another player "similar to him" or with a "similar intensity to him" for maybe like another 40-50 yrs (YES THE MAN WAS THAT GREAT). When Kobe came in to the league and drew comparisons and showed flashes in 1996, people thought it was a SIN for a player that talented to come TOO EARLY, MAYBE 40 YRS EARLIER THAN EXPECTED that there was actually someone worthy enough to be the heir to the NBA throne of Michael Jordan


Note, no where have I stated that Kobe>Michael, I am simply stating that people felt it was against the Bible, or Torah, or the Qu'ran or something like that there could actually be a person who could "maybe challenge" the Greatest of all-time

He also shot 59% from the field. Kobe doesn't get many free-throws (although he deserved at least 8 more than he got) so his 40 point games come on pure dominating stuff.

It was an efficient 40 pts. and he shot 60 pct. His shots came within the flow of the offense and he wasn't just jacking up shots for the sake of it. No need to discredit his accomplishment last night. He's 3rd all time in 40 plus point games which is quite remarkable considering all of the greats that have played the game.

Most career 40 point games in NBA history

Wilt- 271
Jordan- 173
