On Saturday night, Los Angeles Lakers’ LeBron James passed Kobe Byrant on the all-time scoring list. Bryant last withstood a total of 33,643 points and played in 104 more games than James.
The Lakers, who are underway against the Philadelphia 76ers, sit with a record of 36-9; first in the Western Conference. With recent talks about adding another piece before the Trade Deadline, James has been playing some of the best basketball of his career.
This season, the 35-year old is averaging 25.2 points, 10.8 assists, and 7.7 rebounds per game. In Bryant’s age 35 season, he appeared in only six games after fracturing his lateral tibial plateau in his left knee.
Next on the list of all-time scoring is Karl Malone, who sits at the #2 spot with a total of 36,928 points. Ahead of Malone is another Lakers legend in Kareem Abdual-Jabbar with 38,387 points.
