Kobe Bryant Watched His 81-Point Game for the First Time Today and Live Tweeted About ItKirby Lee/USA TODAY Sports

Exactly seven years ago, Kobe Bryant dropped 81 points on the Toronto Raptors. It was the second-highest point total put up by a player in a game in NBA history. But, for years now, Kobe has talked about how he never actually sat down and watched the game. Until now.

Earlier today, Kobe finally sat and watched himself score 81 against the Raptors on NBA TV. And, he's really into Twitter now so he also used it as an opportunity to gain new followers by live tweeting during the entire contest. He talked about how he ate pepperoni pizza before the game, the fact that he could have dropped 100 if he'd made a few more easy shots, and the frustrated looks that he makes when he plays.

To see exactly what Kobe had to say, click through the thumbs gallery above to see all of his tweets (and, trust us, you're definitely going to want to see them all, especially the last one). This was a pretty cool idea, and we hope that other athletes take to their Twitter accounts in the future to live tweet some of their classic games, too.
