2010-11 NBA Season | Kobe is Now Sixth in NBA’s All-Time Scoring List!Category: Basketball
With his second free-throw in the second quarter of a 101-87 victory over the Atlanta Hawks today, Kobe Bryant has surpassed Mose Malone’s 27, 409 points to move into 6th place in the NBA’s all-time scoring list.
In the process, The Black Mamba have also surpassed Oscar Robertson, John Havlicek, Hakeem Olajuwon and Elvin Hayes just two months after he entered the top ten in January.
Playing in his 15th season, Kobe currently has amassed 27,423 points.
The truly entertaining countdown now begins as next on the list is former best buddy Shaquille O’Neal currently in 5th spot with 28,590 career points and counting.
If Kobe keeps up on his current pace of 25.1 points per game, he will likely one-up Shaq even more to move to fourth place.
When that happens, he can finally say that he is not lingering in Shaq’s shadow anymore.
What’s scary for the Abdul-Jabbar, Malone and Jordan is that Kobe is only 32 years old and might surpass them all when he is done.
