24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
It’s hard to believe that it’s already been nine years since March 2007. It was during this month that Kobe Bryant went off for 50 + points, in four straight games.
Kobe was at the peak of his career during this time period and was the best player in the planet, and it wasn’t even close. This was during the post-Shaq years where Bryant was more driven than ever to prove to everyone how great he really is. He also had the green light to do whatever he wanted on the floor, which made this the greatest show in sports at the time.
On March 16, Bryant erupted for 65 points on the Blazers and followed it up with 50 on the T-Wolves two nights later. Coming off a three-day break, Bean went off for 60 on the Grizzlies and then the night after put up 50 point on the Hornets.
Two nights after the Warriors managed to hold him to 43 points, which ended the legendary streak. Kobe averaged a ridiculous 53.6 points per game over the four game stretch. This is something that hasn’t been done since and probably won’t be done for a while.
