And Kobe did it


The student surpassed the master. Since Sunday December 14, Kobe Bryant is the third all-time leading scorer in the NBA after passing Michael Jordan's 32,292 points. Thanks to his 26 points in the Lakers victory over the Timberwolves, the shooting guard left his mark on 32.310 points. Now, only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387) and Karl Malone (36,928) are ahead of the Black Mamba.

Kobe nearly surpassed Jordan with one of his typical fade-away jumpers from the baseline, but it rimmed out and got a foul, with 5:24 to the end of the second quarter. He stepped to the line and calmly swished two freebies to do it, with the fans cheering his name. Bryant, in his 19th season in the league, after missing 76 games last season due to injury, is playing at a high-level again and with 25.5 point average this season (the same as his entire career) he's coming to his sense. And to his roots.

It took the Lakers star 1,269 games to reach the NBA's career scoring podium. Jordan, by the way, amassed his 32,292 points in 1,072 regular-season games. MJ moved into third place in 2003, and the top of the NBA's scoring mountain had remained unchanged for nearly 12 years. Ever since Bryant really started to hit his stride as an elite scorer beginning with his fourth year in the league, he was widely considered the one the record books would have to reserve a spot for.
