Los Angeles Lakers superstar guard Kobe Bryant has another lofty achievement to add to the long list of great accomplishments he has had in his career. He became the 15th player to reach 25,000 career points and reached it at a younger age than any player in NBA history. In tonight’s game against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, Kobe hit a free throw in the second quarter to bring his career total to 25,000 points. Unfortunately for Kobe, his opponent in tonight’s game will likely get to 25,000 points even quicker. Kobe will soon pass Jerry West (25,192) and Reggie Miller (25,279), and will likely pass Alex English (25,613) this season. That means at the end of this season the 31-year-old Bryant will be 12th all-time in career points. Kobe is having another phenomenal season, averaging 28.3 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.5 assists, and 1.8 steals on 47% shooting. What makes those numbers even more impressive is that Kobe has been playing with a broken index finger on his shooting hand since early December. He is definitely one of the best to ever play the game.
