Additionally, per TMZ Sports, the shoes from that historic game were sent to the Basketball Hall of Fame while the uniform is owned by Bryant’s family. That also means that the shooting shirt might be the only Bryant-donned item from the game that ever becomes available.
The shooting shirt went to David Kohler, the president of SCP Auctions, who won the bid.
The time description noted the following:
Through his five NBA championships, seven NBA Finals appearances, fifteen postseason trips, and a plethora of individual accolades, many consider the 81 point performance by Kobe Bryant to be the benchmark for one of the greatest basketball players of all time.
In an interview with ESPN about the game, Bryant said “There’s a lot of players who come up now who don’t think 80 points is possible. You think 50, and if you’re really hot – 60. I never had that limit. Ever. I never, ever thought that way. I always thought 80 was possible. I thought 90 was possible. I thought 100 was possible. Always. I think that game is a testament to what happens when you put no ceiling to what you’re capable of doing.”
