Kobe Puts On Legendary Show At The Garden


With last night’s 61 point performance, Kobe set a new record for points scored by an opponent at Madison Square Garden.

The record was previously held by Michael Jordan who scored 55 in the famous “double nickel” game back in 1995, a few days after he returned from retirement.

I saw an interesting line in Newsday that may have been a precursor to what Kobe was about to do. Knicks guard Nate Robinson told Newsday reporter Alan Hahn that he saw it coming:

First time he stepped on the court, he didn’t say nothing

He usually says ‘Hi,’ but today he was focused, in the zone. So we knew something was up

I just saw Spike Lee on ESPN’s Outside The Lines and he spoke about a documentary he’s doing on Kobe that will air on the network May 14.
