Kevin Ding's post on LA Lakers | Latest updates on Sulia
Kobe saw similarities in Jack Taylor (138-point game for Grinnell College) and himself: "Holy s***," Kobe said ...
"Really? That's crazy," Kobe added. Kobe wondered what sneakers Taylor was wearing for his big game: "He must've been wearing Mambas, because only Mambas have no conscience to shoot that much." Kobe also said maybe it's not just the shoes: "You've gotta have a little Mamba blood" to do that much.
Kobe scored 81 in an NBA game, of course, and was interested enough to ask for details of the Division III game. He said to do that much on any level is quite an effort -- and a statement. Score 138 points and "you kinda have a license to tell people to f*** off," Bryant said.
