Where were you on Jan. 22, 2006?
It's a night that will live in basketball lore for quite some time. Kobe Bryant tallied 81 points against the Raptors in a 122-104 Lakers win. The 81 is the second highest single-game point total in NBA history, behind only Wilt Chamberlain's 100 over 40 years ago.
With no footage of Wilt's performance around, Kobe's night was something that the NBA had never seen before. Now, two years later, people across the league are still buzzing about the historic night.
"I've seen some remarkable games but I've never seen anything like that before," said Lakers coach Phil Jackson, who played against Chamberlain and coached Jordan.
