It's 2007 and the Nuggets are blowing out the Lakers and Kobe Bryant sees Carmelo Anthony laughing on the sideline. At the time Melo was leading the league in scoring by a healthy margin with 30+ PPG (to Kobe's ~28 PPG). Kobe takes exception to Melo's light-heartedness and lets him know that even though the Nuggets were going to win the game, Melo wasn't going to win the scoring title.
Sure enough, on 03/15/2007, the Nuggets blew out the Lakers in Denver by 27 points.
Kobe then followed up that Denver game with a 5 game stretch where he scored 65, 50, 60, 50, and 43 points.
With 12 games left in the season, Kobe went on to have a 53, 46, and 2 more 50 point games.
In that 17 game stretch to end the season, Kobe averaged 40.3 PPG on 47.44% shooting to overtake Carmelo Anthony and win the 2007 scoring title.
