first_imgAs most everyone in the free world has surely heard by now – if you haven’t, sorry you had to hear it from me – Kobe put on a show for the ages on Sunday with a ridiculous 81 points. Read that again. Eight. One. It takes Lamar Odom a week to do that. That’s more than Andrew Bynum and Von Wafer have combined for all season. Ryan Seacrest barely has that many shows. But, because I missed most of the game (c’mon, folks, like you weren’t watching “Desperate Housewives” too), I decided to ask a few people you might’ve heard of just what they thought of the second most productive night in NBA history. Wilt Chamberlain: 81? So what? I had 10,000. Oh, you mean points? Well, I’ve got him there, too. Michael Jordan: That’s a lot of points. I’m impressed. Hold on, my hand is interrupting – something about six rings… Rafael Palmeiro: Amazing. And he turned down those vitamins I offered him. Vince Carter: I think it was bad for the NBA, because he was setting a bad example for the kids and stuff. I mean, what’s he gonna do next? Stop trying and then mope around until his team trades him to a contender? How selfish can he be? David Thompson: Hey, I scored 73. How hard could it be? Elgin Baylor, tugging his hair out: How close was he to joining us, again? And, finally, Phil Jackson: It was a solid effort. But he could involve his teammates more. And, he could shoot less. He could play within the triangle more, like I intended. But, it was a solid effort.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

I limit myself to just 26 shots a night. Dick Jauron: Who cares? Can you believe someone’s giving me another coaching job??? Lamar Odom: It was Kobe being Kobe. And I got to watch all of it, you know, since I was standing around so much. Umm, can I be traded please? Jim Mora, Sr.: I couldn’t believe it! Where was the defense? The Raptors couldn’t do diddly-poo out there! (Sorry, that still makes me giggle) My sister: Ewww, those white uniforms are so ugly! last_img
