Kobe Bryant to live tweet 81-point performance

In what will surprisingly mark the first time he’s ever actually watched the game, Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will live tweet Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET when NBA TV rebroadcasts his career-high 81-point game Jan. 22, 2006 against the Toronto Raptors.

Bryant has said in the past he hasn’t watched his career-setting game, in part that he doesn’t want to wallow in his success while still playing. He has also said that he pulled off such a feat despite consuming pepperoni pizza and grape soda as a his pre-game meal.

In this season filled thus far with disappointment, at least there’s one Lakers game fans know will end with both a clutch Bryant performance and a win. Fans can join the conversation by following the hashtag “#COUNTONKOBE.”
