NBA Daily Dose: Kobe, a Year After 81
On the anniversary of Kobe Bryant’s explosion, it was Luke Walton who played the hero down the stretch.
Do you know what you were doing one year ago yesterday? I do. I was watching the Raptors stand around and marvel while Kobe Bryant torched them for a ridiculous 81 points. So to celebrate his performance for the ages, what did Kobe did for an encore? Oh man…the stiff only managed 42 points. Give me a break! Cut the slacker! In today’s Daily Dose, we examine yet another Kobe gem and how his increased maturity level as a player has helped the Lakers continue to win.
Damon Jones snapped a recent skid; Pau Gasol is increasing his trade value; Dwight Howard continues to prove he should be the Eastern Conference starting all-star centre; and Caron Butler finally stole some of Gilbert Arenas’ fire.
