It's the feeling that I had when I first saw Larry Legend's 60 point game. Like, dag, I'm surprised he missed that falling out of bounds, behind the basket, three... he usually makes those.
gotcha. it's funny how the memory patches over those misses as time goes by.

and i know exactly what you mean re: larry. i've said for years now that kobe's got larry bird disease - the insane confidence that he can hit any shot at any time, and he might just try it. it's a confidence that rubs off on the fans when he's hot and makes you think he's going to nail everything.

thanks for the stat-clarification, loki. i'm starting to think you're a robot. or at least a cyborg of some type - plugged directly into the nba statistical database.
