kobe bryant + over 26,000 points scored = congrats

November 12, 2010

Kobe Bryant’s jumper with 11:10 remaining in the third quarter of the Los Angeles Lakers game against the Denver Nuggets on Thursday gave him 17 points for the game and 26,000 for his career.

At 32 years, 80 days old, he is the youngest player in NBA history to reach the plateau, surpassing former Lakers Wilt Chamberlain (32 years, 114 days) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (33 years, 331 days).

Bryant also became the 12th player in league history to eclipse the 26,000-point mark and the eighth-fastest to do so in terms of games (1,030).

Last season he became the youngest player to reach 25,000 points. He is also the youngest player in league history to accumulate the thousand-point markers for 16,000-20,000 and now 23,000-26,000.
