Jack Taylor wowed LeBron, Kobe
Attention, Grinnell College basketball office: LeBron James wants the tape from Jack Taylor’s record-setting scoring spree, which left fellow NBA star Kobe Bryant awestruck.
James, of the NBA champion Miami Heat, and the Lakers’ Bryant took plenty of notice of the Grinnell guard’s record 138 points in only 36 minutes of playing time in a 179-104 victory over Faith Baptist Bible in Grinnell, Iowa. The Heat called their intern — the day’s designated shooter during a defensive drill for the team — “Taylor” all morning during practice, and after the session, James was among those weighing in on the significance of the feat.
“It’s unbelievable, honestly,” James said. “I would like to see the game. I want to see the game.”
Hard to believe, but after one record shooting night, a three-time NBA MVP like James was putting Taylor in the same breath as all-time superstars like Bryant and Wilt Chamberlain. By the end of his night, Taylor was 52-for-108 (27-for-71 from the 3-point line).
“I watched Kobe’s game when he had 81,” James said. “I watched some of the greatest games ever played when guys scored big numbers. There’s two games that I would love to see: One was Wilt, when he had 100, and this kid, I want to see him, too. Sir Jack.”
Bryant was astonished in his own right. “Wow. That’s impressive. That’s crazy. I don’t care what level you’re at. Scoring 138 points is pretty insane,” he told reporters after the Lakers’ victory Tuesday over the Brooklyn Nets. “How many 3s did he shoot?”
When told it was 71, Bryant said, “Holy s—. How many points did they score as a team?” Told 179, Bryant said, “That’s incredible.”……
I WANT TO WATCH THE GAME, PERIOD.
車仔 怒炒迪馬堤奧 慘負祖雲 勢成首衛冕隊分組賽出局
如果我是哥迪奧拿，我一定不會接手車仔。為乜要為一個對主帥毫無容忍的班主打工，等他說一句「You are fired！」早幾年就話只有他一人會喪放水讓領隊買人，但這一兩年勁有錢的班主已經多了不少，以哥帥的 CV，良禽絕對可以擇木以棲啦！
