The Score: Kobe Bryant’s Rise Up the All-Time Scoring List

Let’s get academic as we report on how Kobe is taking the legends to school.

TITLE:

A report on Kobe Bryant’s rise up the all-time NBA scorers list, investigating how far he can climb with relation to an analysis of his offense and a comparison to the legends above him.

ABSTRACT:

This year, the Mamba slithered up more than just the weekly Top Ten ladders. Kobe’s shook the “Dream” like Christina Milian, left Hayes for smoke and parted Moses as he passed Hakeem Olaujawon, Elvin Hayes and Moses Malone for sixth place on the National Basketball Association’s all-time scoring list. Now Kob’ is trying to crack the top-five like the Black Eyed Peas and you’ll never guess who he’s facing off with next. Let’s just say an early playoff exit this year saw the corvette hit a brick wall. Now it’s time to shift gear. As Bryant climbs until that final day when he decides to call it quits for good, where will he be crowned amongst the all-time scoring royalty of the association? You can count on him being affiliated with the top guys.

INTRODUCTION:

Kobe hits milestones every season. He’s being doing it year after year throughout his entire career — going from youngest ever to best ever records. This year, however, Kobe’s been drawing milestones and breaking records in his sleep. Despite recovering from a knee injury and some ill form, Kobe has still been playing great basketball, having one of his most successful years in terms of career achievements. Kobe’s already made Dominique Wilkins (26,668 points) highlights look human in comparison, passing his position and his big offense already passed ‘The Big O’, Oscar Robertson (26,710 points) in the top ten scoring. Then came three more in a row, even without another championship, and now for the rest of his career he could pass even more. So, let’s take a look at who he could pass and how far he could really see his name rise up the ladder.
