Any Lakers fan knows that Kobe’s highest scoring game (and the 2nd highest scoring game OF ALL TIME) happened against Jalen Rose and the Raptors. In a new commercial for Jalen’s upcoming show on ESPN, Kobe and him reunite.
This was extremely well done, and I legitimately laughed out loud at the “81” comment. I’m not a HUGE Jalen fan, but I respect the mans ability to poke fun at himself.
Don’t worry Jalen, the rest of the league didn’t fare too well either; Kobe put up at least 40 points against every single team in the NBA at one time or another. That night was just your night. Nothing personal.
