However, one accomplishment stands alone. Six years ago tonight Kobe Bryant had one of the greatest individual performances in North American sports history. Bryant scored 81 points against the Toronto Raptors, leading the Lakers to a 122-104 victory over the Toronto Raptors.The 81 points were the second highest in NBA history, trailing only the legendary 100 scored by Wilt Chamberlain back on March 2, 1962.
