Kobe’s 81: A Re-telling by Jalen Rose

If you’re not familiar with Grantland, you should be. They’ve recently put together this video, an insightful explanation of how the crap the Raptors allowed Kobe Bryant to score 81 points on that fateful day in 2006. It’s already one of the most embarrassing moments in Raptor history, but somehow Jalen’s commentary, and the lovely animations, make it easier to take.


I love the “inept Raptor #4” character who appears at 1.49. I also love the exchange at 2:18…

Interviewer: “Why didn’t you guys double team him?”
Jalen: “That’s a great question.”

Good times.
