Kobe Bryant scores 68 points in 15 minutes (video)

8/20/2012

Granted:

  • It was in a charity game.

  • It was in a charity game against players -- actors and musicians, mostly -- who appear to be, ummmm, limited defensively. (What's Mandarin for "traffic cone?")

  • It was in a charity game against players -- actors and musicians, mostly -- who appear to be, ummmm, limited defensively while Kobe poured it on for the benefit of a cheering crowd who had "paid their hard earned money for a show."

But nonetheless, 68 points in 15 minutes (about 4.53 per minute) is still pretty impressive, if only as an exercise in exercise. That sort of thing takes some legitimate lung capacity.

Here's Kobe's description of it, via his Facebook page. Check out the (grainy and entertaining) video below.
