Vote: What does Kobe do for an encore?

 Kobe Bryant
Kobe Bryant's performance caused everyone to stand around and watch.
A day after Kobe Bryant scored 62 points in three quarters on Dec. 20, you told us someone would score 75 points or more in a game over the next decade. Little did we know it would happen just over a month later.

Kobe Bryant's 81-point explosion is the second-highest in a single game in NBA history. Wilt Chamberlain holds the record of 100 points -- against the Knicks in 1962.

There are so many impressive aspects to Bryant's performance. He scored 66 percent of the Lakers' points on 61 percent shooting; there have been 99 instances where a team hasn't reached 81 points this season; and did you know that the NBA's all-time leading scorer, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, never scored more than 55 points in a game? Kobe had that in the second half alone.

Which of those facts is most impressive, SportsNation? Do you think Kobe will ever join Wilt in the 100 Club? And will the Lakers continue to play well and reach the playoffs?
