DIVISION III BALLER JACK TAYLOR DROPS 138 POINTS IN ONE GAME!!
He shot 52-for-108 from the field and 27-for-71 on three-pointers. And the world's best basketball players took notice in a mix of disbelief and envy. The NBA record is 100 points by Wilt Chamberlain, for the Philadelphia Warriors against the New York Knicks on March 2, 1962. Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant heard about the big game after his team's win late Tuesday night.
Needless to say, he was impressed. "That's crazy. I don't care what level you're at, you score 138 points it's pretty insane," Bryant said. "He must have been wearing the Mambas, man," he said, referring to the shoes named after his "Black Mamba nickname.
"Only Mambas have no conscience to shoot the ball that much." Bryant's 81 points in a 2006 game are second to Chamberlain's 100 in NBA history. What does it take to score like that? "You gotta be in shape," he said. "And you gotta have a little Mamba blood in you."
