Kobe Bryant Becomes Youngest To Score 30,000 Points

( 4UMF NEWS ) Kobe Bryant Becomes Youngest To Score 30,000 Points:

Kobe Bryant has heard the Michael Jordan comparisons his entire life. Wednesday, he joined Jordan in another exclusive club.

The Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard reached 30,000 points during the first half of a game at the New Orleans Hornets. He needed 13 points entering the game and finished with 29 in a 103-87 win.

The 30,000th point came not on a dunk, which would have been a fitting reminder of his dunk champion younger days, or three-pointer, the dominant shot during his time as the NBA’s best scorer in his late 20s and early 30s. Instead, he drove past Hornets forward Al-Farouq Aminu and lofted a shot over center Robin Lopez.

It was vintage Kobe Bryant, any era.
