Kobe Bryant played great. He came through with a key three point play that kept his team in the game and extended it to OT. 45 points, 10 assists, and 8 boards, hitting 7 of 11 threes. That is an incredible evening for an NBA player.

Obviously he’s the runner-up.

The Lakers lost and Gilbert was hotter than any Hibachi has ever been. SIXTY points. Eight boards and eight assists. The Wizards actually playing well (offensively) on the road. Wearing a hideously ugly bootleg looking uniform. Player of the D.A.Y. is G.I.L.
