Kobe Bryant made a pair of free throws to give him 32,293 career points, moving past Michael Jordan to 3rd on the all-time scoring list on Sunday night 14th December.
Bryant entered the game against the Minnesota Timberwolves needing nine points to pass the icon with whom he is often compared. He got the mark with two free throws with 5:24 to play in the second quarter.
Now only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Karl Malone have scored more points than Bryant.
Kobe Bryant didn’t break a record Sunday night. Abdul-Jabbar is still more than 6,000 points ahead of him and in no danger of being caught. But moving past Jordan was cause for celebration.
