Kobe's streak will hit six
March, 24, 2007
The first text message from my brother came about 90 minutes before tip-off, asking me if I shared his belief that Kobe Bryant had 50 more points stored up Friday night for the Hornets.
My response, like an idiot: "Nah."
The next taunting text from my brother buzzed in long before Kobe rose up to drain the clinching jumper over Rasual Butler: "Still think he's not going to score 50?"
