Kobe Bryant scored 48 points on Tuesday night, the most by any NBA player this season.

In the postgame press conference, Kobe Bryant was asked if after scoring 48-points against the Phoenix Suns did he at all consider ‘Tebowing’ at the end of the game:

“I didn’t think about it.” Kobe laughed. “But I wouldn’t be opposed to doing it!”

This is the second time in a week that Bryant has spoke about the polarizing figure that is Tim Tebow.

When asked about Tebow beating the Steelers, Bryant in so many words said that, “The guy wins!”. He also added that if Tebow were any ‘meaner’ he would tell people to go ‘pound sand’. For the actual quote check out Kevin Ding’s Twitter.

For those that don’t know, “Tebowing” is to get down on a knee and start praying, even if everyone else around you is doing something completely different. It has even started a movement over at Tebowing.com where people submit pictures of themselves “Tebowing” around the world.

Bryant is known for his support of the Philadelphia Eagles, who missed the playoffs this year at 8-8.
