I don’t like what Dan writes, but here is a good one about Kobe’s performance tonight.
Some important points he makes –
Kobe Bryant scored 81 points on Sunday – enough to rank second all time to Wilt Chamberlain’s immortal 100-point game in 1962 and knock the NFL off the front burner of sports conversations – and yet people still will criticize him.
Count on it. They’ll say he should have passed more (he had just two assists). They’ll say he just did it for the spotlight. They’ll point to his 18 misses, not his 28 makes.
And something about “selfishness” ignored in other sports –
When Peyton Manning is trying to set a single-season touchdown record and calls for pass plays on first-and-goal from the 1, does anyone care?
Of course not, you expect it. You demand it, even.
I agree, enjoy his game and stop hating!
