Kobe Bryant Surpasses Jerry West as Lakers All-Time Free Throw Shooter

During the fourth quarter of tonight’s game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Milwaukee Bucks Kobe Bryant found himself once again setting a Lakers franchise record.

After connecting on a free throw with just six minutes left in the game Bryant surpassed Jerry West as the player to make more free throws as a member of the Lakers than any other player in team history.

Congratulations to Bryant, who is also on the verge of surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar with the most field goals in Lakers history.
