Quoted @NickDePaula

Crazy that it’s been 15 years since Kobe scored 81.

Kobe told me after:
“When you see that shoe, that’s the 1st thing people think of: the 81. It was almost like a trance, where you’re just relaxing and you’re playing & everything is just flowing...Everything is just clicking.”

All 81.
15 years ago today.
2nd most buckets ever.

I interviewed DeMar DeRozan about Kobe a couple years ago, and the 81 point game was one of his favorite childhood memories. He watched it at home in his room as a high schooler.

“I was really tripping out, and wondering if I was playing a video game or something.”

There will be a written piece & videos of the interviews. Here’s a snippet from Shane Battier.
