Lakers News: Kobe Believes Someone Will Surpass His 81-Point Game

All Laker fans will remember the night in January 2006 when Kobe Bryant scored 81 points against the Toronto Raptors. After it happened many claimed that it was more impressive than when Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points against the New York Knicks in Hershey, Pennsylvania in 1962.

In a recent interview with Dave McMenamin of ESPN Los Angeles, Bryant stated that he believes both is record, and ultimately Chamberlain’s, will be surpassed.

While it took more than 40 years for another player to score 80 points or more after Chamberlain scored 100, Bryant said his and Chamberlain’s scoring totals are achievable. “I believe so,” Bryant said when asked if any player would ever join him and Chamberlain with a matching single-game scoring outburst. “One day it will happen.”

I’m not sure if that will ever happen, and if it does I’m sure it will be done by a player that hasn’t even been born yet.
