81!

Kobe and the 81 he hung on Toronto last night are the talk of the NBA. It is an amazing accomplishment. And if they handed out free passes to the playoffs for teams that have a player score 80+ in one game, LA would be really lucky to have Kobe. Instead, for all the fireworks, Kobe's team remains an average Western Conference squad hovering around the .500 mark.

The telling quote: "It was a pleasure just to watch him out there," from teammate Lamar Odom. That's a dream starting lineup ... 1 ego and 4 spectators.

This kind of imbalance has never been a recipe for long-term success in the NBA and Laker Coach Phil Jackson, of all people, knows it. Jackson's pre-Laker superstar Michael Jordan didn't collect any hardware until surrounded with other options.
