The Lakers embarrassed themselves vs. the Pacers the night after Kobe passed MJ
“Well, my work is done here.”
Kobe Bryant passed Michael Jordan to become the third-highest scorer in NBA history Sunday night. Congrats, Kobe! Now that he’s accomplished that lifelong goal of his, it appears he’s checking out:
That 33-point deficit is tied for the worst halftime deficit for the Lakers since 1960 — they were down 33 at the half once last year. But, this was almost worse: They were down 60-21 before Kobe and Wesley Johnson hit threes to end the half. And they’re still getting doubled up. By the Pacers.
The tank is underway once more. We’ll see how long before Kobe realizes Karl Malone is still out there and starts going as hard as he can once more.
