After Jack Taylor's 138-point volume omnipresent Galactus-The-World-Devouring shooting performance Tuesday night, reporters asked the modern day king of scoring, Kobe Bryant, his thoughts on Taylor's performance. From ESPN LA's Dave McMenamin:
Reporter: Kobe, a college kid scored 138 points tonight and took over 100 shots ...
Bryant: "Wow ... No kidding? Where?"
Reporter: Grinnell college in Iowa.
Bryant: "Really? Wow. That's impressive. That's crazy. I don't care what level you're at. Scoring 138 points is pretty insane. How many 3s did he shoot?"
Reporter: 71.
Bryant: "Holy sh--. How many points did they score as a team?"
Reporter: 179.
Bryant: "What?!"
Reporter: No other starter had double figures.
Bryant: "That's incredible."
Reporter: Dude on the other team scored 71 points and lost.
Bryant: "That's amazing. He must have been wearing the Mambas, man. Only Mambas have no conscious to shoot the ball like that."
Reporter: If you did that, would people be celebrating you?
Bryant: "Would people be celebrating me if I scored 138 points? You know how it is, some people would, some people wouldn't. They can all kiss my a-- as I'm sure he feels the same way. If you score 138 points, you kind of have a license to tell people to f--- off.
That's Kobe Bryant dropping profanity, selling his shoes, defending volume shooting, and getting his name in the news in one fell swoop. That's efficiency, folks.
Bryant wasn't the only player to weigh in on Taylor's epic night.
