Kobe's 81 Points Means Wilt's Record 100 Within Reach

Kobe Bryant on Sunday scored 81 points, the second most points in NBA history. Granted, it was against a very weak Toronto Raptors team that doesn't play much defense.

A long, long time ago, and what today seems like a myth, Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points. But that record no longer seems safe, with Bryant launching shots almost every time down the floor, at times acting as though he didn't have any teammates...

When anybody shoots the ball 43 times, he had better score a ton. Kobe shot the ball 46 times and made 28 field goals. Bryant also knows how to get to the free throw, where he made 18 of 20 foul shots. What an impressive display of a unbelievable basketball talent.

But let's not forget, basketball is a team sport.
