Complex Says: February of 2003 was a hell of a month for Kobe. Actually, it was hell for his opponents. With Shaq sidelined by injury, Bryant scored 40 or more points in 9 consecutive contests and averaged 40.6 per for the entire month, joining Wilt as the only other player in league history to do so. With such a lofty accomplishment, you'd think that would be discussed more than this dunk on Yao Ming. Well, at least Yao was hoping so.
