Incredible. Kobe has played so many dominate halves. 81 was basically two quarts and a half.

Michael didn't guard Kobe in that game. It was Jerry Stackhouse and Bryon Russell.

^ That's right cause Michael was too scared (of course he'd never admit it) to get destroyed and embarrassed. Nobody could slow down Kobe that day, nobody.

^ Oh so you think an old MJ past his prime would've actually shut Kobe down that day?

I'm saying "MJ being scared" is ridiculous.

^ Call it whatever, but the point is he didn't man up and take on the challenge himself when he clearly could've. You can't tell me the coach would've told him no. Nobody says no to MJ, not even at that stage/point in his career. I was extremely disappointed in him. Never would've expected that.

No he didn't and he was smart not too. I believe he was pushing 40 then. He probably could have done a solid job for a short period of time but no way a whole game.

Jordan Scared???

Did Jordan ever back down to anyone? Playing professional baseball had to take alot of balls...

Lets wait and see if Kobe can score 50 when he is almost 40. Not happening

Apparently he did this game. You would've thought knowing how ultra competitive Jordan is, at some point he would've said enough is enough (even at his age) and told him teammates and coach to [expletive] off and let me guard this kid. Very disappointing to say the least.

It is a valid question. Jordan was like in his 15th year then (Kobe's 2011 season), if someone was lighting us up wouldn't you think Kobe would shift over and take a crack at that guy? Just something to ponder about, why MJ didn't guard Kobe that game

Great first half by Kobe. He was averaging 30/7/6 at that point in the season. Whatever game in the season it was. Not too shabby.
