Los Angeles vs. New York – Kobe’s 61 – February 02, 2009 – ESPN
Hate him? Love him? Whatever, you’ve got to respect him. Sports superstars are a lot like great musical acts. They work hard to be the best. Whether on a big stage or a small one, great performers give you their all every night. But there are those historic stages that inspire historic performances. Madison Square Garden is one such place, which is usually bad news for the New York Knicks.Last year it was LeBron James effortlessly etching his way into sports history at the Garden. Last night it was Kobe’s turn to join MJ and LBJ on the short list of NBA legends who’ve made MSG chant MVP. With 19out of 31 field goals and 20 out of 20 free throws, Kobe’s 61 is now the highest single player total in that building. He ain’t the greatest, but he’s something like it!
