Kobe Bryant Responds to Jack Taylors' 138 Points in Very Black Mamba Manner
It takes a great deal to impress Kobe Bryant.
Mark Jack Taylor down for two amazing feats in one night, because he managed to shock the "Black Mamba" right after dropping 138 points on a team.
Grinnell College's Taylor is a national sensation at the moment for the gaudy amount of points he put up against Faith Baptist Bible.
While there is a great deal of skepticism that comes with the record (we will get to that shortly), Bryant's initial reaction was not unlike that of anyone else who had heard the NCAA single-game record of 113 points in a game had just been shattered.
Thanks to ESPN LA's Dave McMenamin, we get what is a very Kobe Bryant-reaction to a player dominating the shots and points for the winning team.
Reporter: Kobe, a college kid scored 138 points tonight and took over 100 shots ...
Bryant: "Wow ... No kidding? Where?"
Reporter: Grinnell college in Iowa.
Bryant: "Really? Wow. That's impressive. That's crazy. I don't care what level you're at. Scoring 138 points is pretty insane. How many 3s did he shoot?"
Bryant: "Holy sh--. How many points did they score as a team?"
Reporter: No other starter had double figures.
Bryant: "That's incredible."
Reporter: Dude on the other team scored 71 points and lost.
Bryant: "That's amazing. He must have been wearing the Mambas, man. Only Mambas have no conscience to shoot the ball like that."
Reporter: If you did that, would people be celebrating you?
Bryant: "Would people be celebrating me if I scored 138 points? You know how it is, some people would, some people wouldn't. They can all kiss my a-- as I'm sure he feels the same way. If you score 138 points, you kind of have a license to tell people to f--- off.
While that may be the initial reaction, Bryant may change his tune as others have when you take into account the manner Taylor went about collecting 138 points.
As Deadspin reports, the awesome feat took a great deal of cherry picking, full-court pressing and playing a game that only barely resembles basketball.
There is even this video of Grinell College broadcasters assuming records would be broken on the night, knowing full well how the team plays, via Busted Coverage.
Still, it takes a player who can shoot a consistent shot to get to that amount of points while still only playing in 36 minutes.
He shot 52-of-108 on the night and put up a number we are now forced to consider.
Sure, the game may have been played to break records, but the feat is still an amazing one, and the Bryant reaction is priceless.
If nothing else, Taylor managed to shake the unshakable Black Mamba.
Hit me up on Twitter for more insanity.
