Date: 2/2/2009

While Laker fans certainly garner more attention, Knicks fans lave long been held in esteem as astute observers of the game. So during a midseason road trip to MSG's hallowed halls, Kobe gave them—and the Knicks—something to watch. In a 61-point display of dazzling footwork and marksmanship, Kobe left the building with the win, the Garden's scoring record, and perhaps an even more impressive feat. He left Spike Lee speechless.
