Kobe Bryant's legacy as one of the greatest basketball players of all time could be defined by his five NBA Championships, his 18 All Star selections, his two NBA Finals MVP's, his 4 All Star Game MVP Awards, his 11 All NBA First Team offensive selections, his slam dunk championships, or even his 9-time All-NBA First Team defensive selections. However, there are a few performances in Bryant's career that stand out among all of his accomplishments. One of those performances came on the night of January 22, 2006 when Kobe went off for a total of 81 points, the second most points scored in a game in the history of the NBA only behind Wilt Chamberlains 100 point game over forty years prior in 1962 when the league wasn't quite what it is today in terms of athleticism, talent, and overall competitiveness. This game was not only the highlight of Bryant's career in terms of single game performances but is also considered one of the greatest single game performances in the history of the NBA.

On the night of January 22, 2006 the visiting Toronto Raptors took the court at the Staples Center where the Lakers scored a 122-104 comeback victory at home, Bryant finished with 81 points on 28-of-46 shooting, including 7-of-13 from 3-point range, and 18-of-20 from the foul line. The accomplishment stunned even Bryant himself. "Not even in my dreams," Bryant said. When Bryant scored his final two points on a pair of free throws with 43.4 seconds remaining, the chants of "M-V-P! M-V-P!" from the 18,997 fans at Staples Center couldn't have been more fitting. Bryant finished the second half scoring 55 of his 81 points -- the second highest point total in a half in NBA history behind Chamberlain's 59-point second half in his 100-point game. With his team trailing by 18 points in the third quarter, Bryant simply exploded, scoring 27 points in the third and 28 in the fourth. He accounted for all but 18 of the Lakers points in the second half and single-handedly put the game away.

This incredible official NBA scoring report comes from the night when Kobe accomplished one if his greatest feats. The 8x10-inch white paper contains all of the official scoring from the contest on January 22, 2006 and was only available to media reporters onsite as well as employees, players and staff at the Staples Center on this night. In addition to the rarity of this score sheet, this one comes signed in black marker by Kobe Bryant. The signature has been authenticated by Beckett Authentication and has been encapsulated (11977421) and graded a GEM MINT 10.
