And I would’ve won if it hadn’t been for you darned kids!
So Kobe did three consecutive 40 point games. Anyone think he’d get a fourth? Guess he did.
KB24 notched 42 last night in his Kobe VII “Attack Fast” against the Clippers, who came out on top, 102-94. Chris Paul sliced and diced in the Jordan CP3.V’s for 33, 4, 6, and 3.
Kobe, in his quest to prove he’s still the game’s top dog and not its grayfaced hound, might be wise to remember that scoring binges don’t guarantee victory. Even binges by MJ. The G.O.A.T.’s nine straight 40 point games in the 1987 season yielded just three W’s.
Sure, the Lakers are 3-1 during Kobe’s streak. But if his streak continues and the team’s win column doesn’t keep pace, people will want him to go back to ‘old’ Kobe. The very thing he doesn’t want to be.
