Everybody says Kobe scored 45 points in Drew League this week. Except the Drew League. They say 43. Also, it turns out he called up, said he wanted to get in because Kevin Durant and LeBron James had already played, but the league was over, so they set up a special game for him at 2 o'clock on a Tuesday, then Bryant delayed it at the last minute. Such a cooperative guy, that Kobe Bryant.
But the other thing Kobe Bryant is? A terrific basketball player. As is evidenced by this game in which he scored 43 points. Here are all of them.
Kobe obviously felt like working on the spin move. I understand this isn't an organized game, but if you were on a team playing Kobe Bryant, wouldn't you bring a double? I'd bring a double. But then you don't get these highlights and a guady scoring total, which is what Drew League is really about. Anyway, it's a nice reminder of what we'll be missing come October.
