Kobe will never be like Wilt
Big news around the sports world is the GMAC bowl tonight. Ok, fine, it's the St. Louis Cardinals signing Sidney Ponson.
Really, people have been talking about how Kobe (Bryant -- as if there are other Kobe's) put up a whopping 62 points in only three quarters of action Tuesday night.
But c'mon people, 62 is way less than Wilt Chamberlain's 100 against the New York Knicks in '62. (He also scored over 70 points three other times).
Kobe is no doubt an exceptional player, but he will never be like Wilt -- on and especially off the court. Wilt is arguably the most explosive scorer ever in the history of basketball. Kobe is not.
And let's certainly not forget Wilt's prolific scoring off the court. The man claims to have slept with 20,000 women! That is awesome and must've been a tad tiresome.
Wilt died at the age of 63. If he were to start getting his groove on from the time he entered the world to his last breath, he would've had sex with 317 women a year.
But to be realistic, let's say he starting having sex at age 12 and stopped at 60. That means, on average, he slept with about 417 different women a year. And according to science, there are 365 days in a year. That fool was the king of the bedroom -- and he was in there with a different woman about 1.4 times a day.
Just imagine him on the SS Love Boat. He woulda been a hit!
And here's what's public about Kobe's sex life. He is married. One. He met some girl in Colorado. Two. Give or take some more honeys and he's at 50, tops.
Kobe has much catching up to do. While 62 points in three quarters ain't shabby, let's not get too caught up with this. He probably didn't even get laid last night.
