Kobe Bryant Is Fifth Player In NBA History To Reach 30,000 Points

Kobe Bryant became the fifth player to score 30,000 career points in NBA history. Only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Michael Jordan, and Wilt Chamberlain have done this remarkable feat.

Bryant only needed 13 points to reach that milestone going into their game against the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday night.

The next achievement for Bryant is passing Wilt Chamberlain on the all-time scoring list. Chamberlain is fourth on the list with 31,419 points and if Bryant stays healthy, he will likely pass him this season.

Kobe Bryant is also the all-time franchise leader in points, steals, and games played. Congratulations to Kobe for reaching this career achievement.
