TWITTER: Reactions To Kobe Passing Jordan On NBA’s All-Time Scoring List

The Los Angeles Lakers were on the road once again on Sunday night with NBA history set to be made at the Target Center. Kobe Bryant came into the game against the Minnesota Timberwovles only nine points shy of passing Michael Jordan on the NBA’s all-time scoring list with many anticipating he’d pass that mark early.

With a trip to the charity stripe late in the first half, Kobe was able tie and then pass Jordan by hitting both free throws to improve his career point total to 32,293. Bryant now sits behind only two players who happen to be former Lakers Karl Malone (36,928) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387) on the list of the league’s greatest scorers.
