DID YOU HEAR the one about Kobe Bryant scoring 68 on a bunch of Chinese guys?
Recently, Bryant, as he has done on many occasions, visited China, where he is that nation's most adored basketball player. He was hanging around the gym at what is billed as the Sprite China Second Annual Charity Basketball Game in Shanghai and, with his team facing a 29-point halftime deficit, decided to suit up and play against a bunch of players who probably could be beaten by the faculty at Lower Merion High School.
So King Kobe, the greatest basketball in the world (according to the Chinese), came off the bench to beat up on a bunch of every-other-weekend warriors. Kobe went for 68 - in the second half.
